The Great Place to Work Institute has launched their 2009 program partnering with BRW. They have over 20 years experience in measuring employee engagement from all over the globe, they define a great place to work as one where trust exists.
At the heart of our definition of a great place to work – a place where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with – is the idea that a great workplace is measured by the quality of the three, interconnected relationships that exist there:
- The relationship between employees and management.
- The relationship between employees and their jobs/company.
- The relationship between employees and other employees.
The 2008 Great Places to Work in Australia were:
- Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
- Dow Corning
- Morgan Stanley
- Russell Investments
- SEEK Limited
Nominations are open now, so if you feel your workplace is a great place to work head over and nominate it!
