Celebrating the 2019 Tasmanian Employers of Choice

I would like to congratulate the thirteen Tasmanian organisations which have been recognised as Employers of Choice at a gala event in Hobart with 200 industry and community representatives in attendance.

The annual Employer of Choice Awards recognise Tasmanian organisations that demonstrate contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for their staff.

The newest Employers of Choice recipients take the ranks of recognised workplaces to 117, collectively employing over 20 000 Tasmanians.

This year’s inductees come from a broad range of sectors including forestry, education, social and health services, finance, construction, manufacturing, tourism and hospitality, demonstrating the high regard for accreditation across our industries.

Employer of Choice accreditation is a highly sought after and recognised tick of approval among our business, community and service sectors, as judged by the business community itself.

These companies demonstrate a commitment to supporting work life balance, employee engagement, communication, leadership and continuous improvement.

All Employers of Choice stand as recognised leaders in our community by providing great workplaces and looking after their people, and through them, providing motivated and high-quality customer service.

The winning organisations and new Employers of Choice are
