RAS Wins Excellence in Employee Engagement Award

At the recent Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association Awards night, the spotlight shone brightly on Repco Authorised Service and our innovative partnership with Gates Australia, which has revolutionised apprentice engagement in the automotive industry.

A highlight of the evening was RAS taking out the Excellence in Employee Engagement & Wellbeing Award for our joint activities with good friends Gates around our apprentice program, a collaboration that has helped redefine how apprentices are motivated and has been a positive force for retaining talent in our program.

What started as a discussion over Supercars tickets quickly evolved into a transformative partnership. Leveraging RAS's position as the Official Car Service Partner to the Repco Supercars Championship, the program offered RAS apprentices unique experiences, including access to the Penrite Racing Team and exclusive on-track corporate hospitality at the 2023 Repco Supercars rounds.

The Repco Authorised Service and Gates Australia's partnership has not only set a new standard for apprentice engagement but is also helping pave the way for a more vibrant and sustainable future for the automotive industry and we are delighted that even more RAS apprentices will gain exposure to unique opportunities through the 2024 RAS/Gates Apprenticeship program.
