In 1999, R&R Director Matthew Beechey started spreading the word that ‘health’ was pivotal in the pursuit of businesses achieving desired ‘safety’ outcomes.
What started as a small group of passionate onsite massage therapists has evolved into a WorkSafe award winning, experienced team of health and safety professionals capable of unlocking business potential.
The team at R&R Corporate Health will always be proud of being pioneers of what is now a corporate world that views staff wellbeing as critical to organisational success and sustainability. R&R helped set the scene, but the journey has only just begun.
