DEWC Services, Australia’s foremost C4ISREW specialists, is proud to partner with Navy Health as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of its veteran employees.

As part of the partnership, DEWC Services’ employees and their families will have greater access to more affordable private health insurance.

Prioritising the mental health of Australia’s veterans is a key focus for DEWC Services, a veteran owned business. 

DEWC Services GM – People and Culture, Deb Penaluna said this latest initiative is testament to the company’s core value of maintaining the health and wellbeing of its employees.

“We have a number of veterans and active reservists and we believe it’s important to have benefits and initiatives that recognise their service and help them thrive in their personal lives and the workplace,” Penaluna said. 

DEWC’s partnership with Navy Health makes private health insurance more accessible to our employees and their families particularly within the continued cost of living increases.

“Discounted gym membership, the Healthy Minds program and connections in the workplace through social and special interest groups are just some of the other ways we are investing in the mental health of our employees.

“Navy Health is a not-for-profit fund for the Defence community, which resonates with us and our purpose of contributing to protecting Australia and its interests.”

Navy Health corporate relationship partner Katrena Fisher said prioritising the wellbeing of the Defence community is at the heart of what Navy Health does.

“We take pride in protecting those who protect us, their families and all Australians working at a company that supplies goods or services to the ADF,” Katrena Fisher said.

“We are always looking for ways to support our corporate partners in their health and wellness initiatives and goals, through educational content, webinars and information sessions.”

For nearly 70 years, Navy Health has provided quality and affordable health insurance to serving and ex-serving ADF members, their families and those working for companies that supply to the Australian Defence Force.
