Employer of Choice 2019

Having open, transparent, and free-flowing communication channels is undeniably essential to a successful business.

In addition to keeping employees up to date with important internal and external events impacting the business, staff should likewise be encouraged to provide feedback, give suggestions, raise important issues, and air their grievances. Employers should in turn be receptive to constructive criticism. This openness to feedback is something that particularly stood out in AJ Hackett Bungy and Unitec’s submissions.

The top scorers in this category focused on simple things like regular meetings and briefings as well as the importance of keeping employees informed of the company’s direction and progress so that individual efforts can be better aligned with wider business goals.

An active social media presence also came up as a good way to communicate effectively with customers and clients as well as staff.
