Australia's Employer of Choice 2021 winners announced by HRD

HRD has announced this year’s Australian Employer of Choice 2021 winners, showcasing some of the country’s best places to work.

The coveted gongs follow an incredibly challenging year in which employers of all sizes have had to adapt in the face of a global pandemic.

Whether businesses were forced to send their employees home or were tasked with protecting frontline workers, HR teams have had their work cut out. But this year’s submissions show the true resilience of Australia’s employers as they rose to the challenge and continued to put employees first.

Now that the country has moved into the recovery phase, recruiting, and retaining the best talent has become a top priority. Employee value propositions have evolved, meaning employees are no longer attracted to salary alone. Businesses must step up to the plate with great workplace culture, wellbeing support and career progression if they’re to remain competitive.

In this year’s list of winners, we’ve seen just that. Entries were judged on their achievements and initiatives across a number of areas, including learning and development, wellbeing, leadership and flexibility.

Comprising small, medium, and large enterprises, both returning winners and new entries have earned their spot on the list. Employers included Madison Group Enterprises, Australian Catholic Superannuation, A S Harrison & Co Pty Ltd, Singleton Council, MYOB, Howden, Aurion and Merz Aesthetics.
