MediaHub Australia Named 2015 NSW Employer Of Choice

The 2015 NSW Business Chamber State Awards were held in Sydney on 27 November 2015 at Dockside Pavilion, with a stack of heavyweights taking out the prizes.

MediaHub Australia, the television playout facility which broadcasts over 170 channels across Australia and the Asia-Pacific, has been named 2015 NSW Employer of Choice by the state’s peak business organisation, the NSW Business Chamber.

Sponsored by CareSuper, the NSW Business Chamber’s Employer of Choice Award recognises businesses that have put in place strategies and initiatives to create a stimulating and supportive work environment for their employees.

MediaHub Australia CEO Alan Sweeney said, “We are absolutely delighted to have won the NSW Business Chamber’s Employer of Choice Award. We put a significant amount of effort into our employees’ development and the development of their workplace so this award is a great validation of those efforts.”

Current initiatives include company funded team-building events, subsidised gym memberships and other health-focused employee benefits. MediaHub Australia also has an employee recognition program, which through peer nominations recognises an Employee of the Year, Rising Star and Quiet Achiever.

The combined result of these initiatives has been a reduction in employee absenteeism by nearly one working day per employee and improved staff retention with almost 90 per cent of the current senior team already chalking up three or more years with the business.

NSW Business Chamber chief executive Stephen Cartwright said, “MediaHub Australia has clearly worked incredibly hard to establish a stimulating and supportive work environment that prioritises the wellbeing of staff and ensures they feel valued.

“This is a fantastic achievement for MediaHub Australia, and sets an excellent example for other organisations across the state.”
