Australia Broadcasting Corporation is ranked as Australia’s best employer
Australian Broadcasting Corporation has been named as a top employer in Australia according to the annual Randstadt awards. It has been followed by Virgin Australia and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. The purpose of the survey is to give a better idea of those people who want to live and work in Australia, which companies they should work for.
They are voted for by 9,500 potential job seekers. The awards have been attended by top executives of more than 150 companies in Australia and took place in Doltone House in Sydney. Steve Shepherd, group director of recruitment and HR specialists Randstad said that the ABC should be extremely proud to be recognized as Australia’s most attractive employer for the second consecutive year. ABC was seen as equally attractive by both men and women.
At the same time, it was an especially valued employer for workers that are older than 30 years of age. ABC was however not the best in terms of the wage competitiveness but was among employers that offer interesting and varied job content, high job satisfaction and pleasant working atmosphere. In addition to that Australian Broadcasting Corporation offered the best work-life balance and a strong commitment to the society and the environment.
Further accolades went to the Commonwealth Bank who took home the award for the most attractive employer in Banking and Financial Services, beating ANZ and NAB. And Coca-Cola Amatil won most attractive employer in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector, ahead of Nestle and Lion. Federal Government Department was also prominent in this year’s employers ranking.
The reason for this is that employees rank very highly the job security, the excellent training programs and the social benefits that the public organizations provide.
