For the third year running, employer branding and reviews platform JobAdvisor is launching its Coolest Companies in Australia competition. JobAdvisor recognises companies that offer game changing service, provide unprecedented benefits to employees, foster friendly working environments and are addressing workplace diversity.

Start-ups, small businesses (SMBs), and large enterprises are all very much encouraged to participate as the aim of the competition is to value companies that have put in place innovative and different working environments, and bring value to their employees no matter of the organisation’s size, geographical presence, or revenue.

“One of the things that makes Cool Companies different from other such competitions is that we encourage smaller companies to apply. We want to hear all the stories of great Aussie companies, not just the big or glamorous ones with big budgets,” said Ben Hutt, CEO of JobAdvisor and Search Party.

“Our goal is to put the spotlight on amazing Australian companies and have them shine in the public eye, regardless of their size.”

Last year’s competition awarded winners for two categories: Coolest in Tech and Coolest for Women. Finalists included Buzinga, AdRoll, 99Designs and CommBank, while Canva and Envato took top honors.

This year JobAdvisor is looking for Australia’s coolest companies in four categories: Coolest in Tech, Coolest in Finance, Coolest SMB and Coolest Company for Diversity.

“We expanded the categories this year to showcase two sectors that typically have to work harder to be called ‘cool,’” Hutt explained. “We chose SMBs to help smaller companies have a louder voice and finance to shine a different light on what’s viewed as a rather traditional industry but is in the midst of the “fintech revolution”.

“We also expanded our Cool for Women category to become Coolest Company for Diversity in order to showcase the huge variety of diversity initiatives pursued by Aussie companies, including gender equality.”

Applications are now open. To participate, companies need to submit an application, have an updated JobAdvisor profile and get at least three new reviews from current employees. Entries close on Friday, 21 October and JobAdvisor will be announcing the Top 10 finalists in each category in November.
