How a global pandemic authorised a long overdue workplace shake up!
Welcome to the 2020 50 Best Place to Work benchmarking study.
The list was published during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, which has upended every individual’s life and every business throughout the world. The 2020 Best Places to Work benchmarking study is based on data collected prior and during the COVID-19 outbreak. The organisations in the study are leading the way amid the pandemic, demonstrating care for their employees, customers and communities during this challenging time.
While prompted by uncertain and at times weighty circumstances, the pandemic has created opportunities to experiment with new ways of working. Organisations have introduced more flexible ways of working and harnessed the power of digital means to bring their people together. It has placed a premium on the organisation building an inclusive culture, with organisations taking this opportunity to bank on the trust they have built with their employees over recent years.
Over the last 12 months we surveyed 39,156 Australian employees from 124 companies to bring you our 13th edition of the annual 50 Best Places to Work study.
Let’s celebrate those who are dedicated to building great workplaces and congratulate the companies on this year’s 50 Best Places to Work list.
These organisations have set themselves apart from their competitors as places where employees are respected and treated fairly, leaders are credible, and trust is nurtured.
The 2020 study was conducted between September 2019 and June 2020. The results represent 39,156 Australian based employees from 124 companies. The study recognises companies in three size categories: under 100 employees, 100-999 employees, and over 1,000 employees.
How The 50 Best Are Selected The 50 Best Places to Work are selected and ranked by Great Place to Work Australia, a global workplace research and consulting firm. Each company participating in the study for this list earns a score based on two factors. Two-thirds of the total score comes from employee responses to a 58-statement survey. The survey is distributed on a census basis and minimum completion rates are calculated using a 95% confidence interval. The remaining one-third comes from our evaluation of the company’s policies and procedures in nine specific practice areas created by Great Place to Work Inc.
