Best workplaces – Australia’s top 10 named

A global authority on workplace culture, has announced the Aussie winners in its 16th annual ‘The Best Workplaces’ list.

The emerging trends of the 2023 list by Great Place To Work shows that when navigating uncertainty, trust matters – and effective leadership is what sets the best apart from the rest.

These themes, along with workplace flexibility, trust in leadership and a commitment to First Nations People unify those ranked on the 2023 list– part of the biggest study of workplace excellence on the globe.

The list ranks 90 organisations in four different categories and represent over 100,000 employee voices across different industries in Australia.

Categories include – micro (companies with less than 30 employees), small (companies with 30 to 99 employees), medium (companies with  100 to 999 employees) and large (companies with 1,000 or more employees).

The survey measured the three key relationships that drive an employee’s experience in their workplace—relationships with management, colleagues, and their job. The Trust Index score represents the percentage of employees who consider their company to be a great workplace and is an indicator of their actual workplace experience.

Roland Wee, managing director of Great Place To Work Australia, said that 2023 Best Workplaces data showed that the impact leaders had on their organisations is greater than ever in a post-pandemic world. After 30 years of un-interrupted GDP growth in Australia, the outlook is looking increasingly challenging for businesses.

“What we saw in the 2023 results was that leaders and companies that supported their employees through the tough times in COVID came out stronger than those who did not.

“What sets these 90 workplaces apart from the rest is their leaders’ strong integrity and unwavering commitment to deliver on promises, engaging meaningfully with employees, cultivating an atmosphere of mutual respect and building a true sense of camaraderie, especially when times are tough” he said.

“Employees look to their leaders for direction and stability, intensifying the pressure on leaders to successfully navigate both operational demands and people responsibilities.

“Employees have to juggle work and personal responsibilities while grappling with the challenges of rising living costs, and they’re seeking leaders to show genuine empathy and care for their individual circumstances. They are looking for leaders who can guide them through the challenges ahead.”
