Gunnebo Australia Honoured As ‘Employer Of Choice’

Gunnebo Australia has been recognised as an Employer of Choice (EOC) in The Australian Business Awards 2018. Now in their thirteenth year, The Australian Business Awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of comprehensive award categories. The EOC accolade recognises organisations which have developed workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through practices that demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.

Michael Brookes, Managing Director says the award provides recognition of the organisation’s managerial practices that ensure growth, supporting our Employees to focusing on our customers and deliver the highest value.

“Gunnebo Australia are delighted to be the proud winner of the Australian Business Award’s Employer of Choice 2018”, said Michael Brookes, Managing Director. “Our vision and purpose is directly aligned to the understanding that our Employees are our best asset. Our internal programs focusing on training and development, communication and collaboration are integral to achieving our business goals and have allowed Gunnebo Australia to achieve significant growth in the market place.”

“Employers that adopt leadership and management practices that engage and motivate individuals to achieve a high standard of performance have been recognised in this year’s Employer of Choice Awards,” said Australian Business Awards Program Director, Ms Tara Johnston.

“Higher-performing organisations make better workplaces because people are more invested in the organisation’s goals and are generally more satisfied with their working conditions, than those of lower-performing organisations.

“It is important that employers invest in the education, training and development of their workforce as key to future growth, innovation and achieving high performance.” Ms Johnston added.

The Australian Business Awards program provides notable opportunities for high-performing organisations to be acknowledged and honoured for their achievements both nationally and internationally.

The Employer of Choice Award recipients will participate in the international chapter of the program at the World Business Awards whereby participants are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally.

The Employer of Choice Framework (EOC Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework.

The key attributes of the Employer of Choice Framework define the characteristics of well-managed, high-performing, industry leading organisations that provide a stimulating and supportive workplace.

Entrant organisations are required to demonstrate their achievements across the key areas of Organisational Culture; Leadership & Strategy; Employee Education, Training & Development; Employee Health, Safety & Satisfaction; Performance Management; Recognition & Remuneration.

Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multi-national subsidiaries, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.
