Sydney, Australia, May 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Human Resources Director magazine together with Maxxia have released the results of the 2nd annual Employer of Choice survey, revealing the best companies to work for in Australia as rated by employees themselves.
Tech company Data#3 has been named Australia’ best large company (500+ Employees) followed by MYOB and Johnson & Johnson while smaller company size categories were topped by 1300apprentice (100-499 Employees) and Qualtrics (1-99 Employees).
Based on results from a national survey of over 2,230 employees from 228 companies, the 2nd annual Employer of Choice report recognises companies that were rated the best by their employees across several criteria, from satisfaction with current remuneration to leadership effectiveness within their organisation.
“Employee engagement is a crucial element of business success and a key way to attract and retain staff is by aspiring to gain external acknowledgement and verification as a leading employer,” says HRD editor Iain Hopkins. “These awards were voted on not by HR professionals themselves, but the people within their organisations.”
Companies vying for the title of Employer of Choice this year represented a range of industries from technology, to health, education and training, food, professional services and more.
