  • Maxus was 15th in the ‘under 100 employees’ category.

Commenting on this year’s results, Zrinka Lovrencic, managing director of Great Places To Work Australia, said: “Being a great workplace is no longer seen as ‘nice to have’; today it is imperative to business vitality and success. Leaders at the companies involved in the study know that what is good for the workplace is also good for business, and that being a great workplace and having great employees leads to increased client retention, customer satisfaction, and in turn, a healthier bottom line.”

The Works’ co-founder and creative partner, Kevin Macmillan, said of his agency’s top 50 finish: “Is there a better accolade for your business? Your people saying, ‘Yeah I’m really happy’. That’ll do for me. Not only that, it is undoubtedly the best starting point for brilliant creativity, productivity and business performance.”

Salesforce’s general manager and executive vice president, Mark Innes, said: “It’s a great honour to again be voted as one of the Best Places to Work in Australia, as it’s proof of the passion and commitment that goes into creating our culture.

 “Creating a robust workplace culture is an ongoing commitment, every day, no matter what. It means keeping our core values – of trust, growth, innovation and equality for all– at the centre of everything we do,” he said.

Aimee Buchanan, chief executive of OMD Australia, said: “We are delighted to be listed again as one of the 50 best places to work in Australia.

“We have a clear company vision around performance with integrity that has a consistent focus on our people. It is their passion and commitment that sets OMD apart from the crowd and defines our brand.”

Karly Leach, managing director for Maxus Melbourne, said: “We’re thrilled to have come 15th in the 2017 Best Places to Work study. It’s a testament to the work we’ve been doing internally to continue to ensure Maxus a great place to work.

“We’re particularly proud of the efforts of our PACEMAKER Committee.”

Commenting on Meltwater’s position, company director David Hickey, said: “Employee happiness and job satisfaction are fundamental to our company culture. The fact that our staff feel a strong sense of belonging and purpose within their role and have fun at the same time, is what makes Meltwater such an amazing environment to work in. We strive to ensure our people enjoy the work they do by creating genuine connections between their day jobs and the company’s overall mission.”

David Hickey, director of Meltwater for Australia and New Zealand, attributed the company’s high employee satisfaction rate to its focus on having fun while maintaining a strong sense of purpose.

“Employee happiness and job satisfaction are fundamental to our company culture,” he said.

“The fact that our staff feel a strong sense of belonging and purpose within their role and have fun at the same time is what makes Meltwater such an amazing environment to work in.

“We strive to ensure our people enjoy the work they do by creating genuine connections between their day jobs and the company’s overall mission.”

Zinc CEO Peter Cleary said: “Our vision at Zinc has always been to build the best company in Australia to work in, and that has always been our goal from day one.

“Being recognised as a great place to work isn’t just a trophy for us in the pool room – it’s something that our team gets behind, and is proud to be part of something bigger.”
