Wellness, flexibility keys to employee satisfaction
Roland Wee, managing director of Great Place to Work Australia, said employees working for the companies in this year's list were seven times more likely to stay in their company for a long time, and were 15 times more likely to endorse their company as a great place to work, adding the emphasis of wellness by employers.
"The best employers are focusing on wellness beyond the physical – providing benefits that support their employees' total well-being – mental, emotional and physiological," Wee said.
"We are seeing a concerted effort to take care of the mental health of people, supporting leaders and normalising mental health conversations.”
He added that, apart from this, they had also seen great strides in flexibility.
"The best employers are proactively offering flexible, hybrid work arrangements for their employees," Wee said.
"They recognise that employees appreciate and thrive in this model of flexible working. The very best are engaging their people in designing what the future of work looks like, experimenting and adjusting policies as they go."
