Conducted over the last 12 months, the 2020 study investigated each participating company and its employees, scoring them based on two factors. Each company was split into three size-based categories: under 100 employees, 100-999 employees, and over 1,000 employees. A majority of the score comes from staff responses to the 58-statement survey, while the remaining evaluation is of the company’s policies and procedures in nine specific practice areas created by Great Place to Work Inc.

Zrinka Lovrencic, Managing Director at Great Place to Work describes these list topping businesses as organisations “leading the way amid the pandemic, demonstrating care for their employees, customers and communities during this challenging time.”

With such an in-depth analysis now published, the team has a few ideas on how to shake up the workplace. Their expert recommendations include increased communication, more job security, and a transition in how we work, amongst concerns for health and safety and the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. “More than ever, we are being reminded that employees are an organisation’s greatest asset and the greatest competitive advantage.”

Now with all the methodology and context out of the way, here is the list of the 50 best places to work in Australia.
