In their seventeenth year, the awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program that recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of established business and product award categories.
Our Partner, People & Culture, Jennie Murray says the EOC award provides recognition the organisational focus on our people and Employee Value Proposition but more importantly, the contribution of our team to sustain a collaborative and motivating culture.
“Our organisation has experienced consistent and rapid growth since our inception and we have been determined to protect and enhance our culture through inevitable growing pains. Continuous improvement of our employee experience is an area of ongoing focus, and we are deeply proud of our team and their contribution to maintaining a stimulating and thriving workplace.
The pandemic has presented many business challenges and acted as a catalyst for us to embrace change and a new way of work, whilst protecting what makes us unique. As an organisation, we do our best to provide the framework for growth and a positive work environment, but our staff are the ones make their own experience. They are absolutely our ‘secret sauce’. This award is a credit to them all.“
