Act for Kids named employer of choice

St Leonards, NSW (24 May 2019) - Milton-headquartered Act for Kids has been selected for the annual Employer of Choice list released by Human Resources Director (HRD) magazine. The prestigious list recognizes the companies and organisations that stand out above the rest in the overall employment landscape.

HRD’s Employer of Choice survey asked participating employees about key areas that have been identified as critical to feeling engaged at work. Chief among these were whether their employers provided career paths, offered suitable learning and development opportunities, and rewarded and recognised a job well done. Those companies that achieved the highest average scores from employees across all questions are highlighted as ‘top performers’ in each subcategory. The cream of the crop are the Employer of Choice winners. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards have been given to those employers in our three size categories that are truly going above and beyond.

Act for Kids has been awarded Gold for Employer of Choice 100-499 Employees and recognised as a top performer in the Leadership, Work-life Balance, and Health and Wellbeing categories.

“There’s no question that some employers are better to work for than others. So, what elevates a company to the level of Employer of Choice? It’s clear that employers cannot merely provide an office and a pay cheque – those days have long since disappeared into the ether. There must be additional incentive,’ says the Human Resources Director team. “The survey results are revealing. They provide key insights into the areas that employees value, the disparity that can exist between their views and what employers themselves may value, and how that gap can subsequently be closed.”
