Welcome to the publication of the 2021 Great Place to Work® list of the Best Workplaces™ in Australia.
The publication of this report is about showcasing the organisations across Australia who truly made it their mission to foster a Purpose driven, People First approach to workplace culture. It’s been more important than ever before for companies to focus on what really matters as 2021 has truly been a year like no other – and we must acknowledge the pain, suffering and loss inflicted by this pandemic across the planet. But the past year has brought great, humbling lessons as well. It was a year in which the bottom line gave way to care, and the top line was superseded by culture.
Organisations who understand what it means to genuinely look after their employees and can live those ideals whether people are in the office or on the end of a video call — are the ones surviving and even thriving as this COVID-19 crisis grinds on. In fact ultimately the best companies are those that have clarity on their values and can lean on them when they need to. The best care about their communities and their people. They trust their people.
This report looks at these organisations and what they did to thrive in this crisis, and by downloading your copy you’ll gain unique insights into their culture and offerings which have set the benchmark for workplaces across the country in 2021.
