Specialist IT recruiter Peoplebank, one of the largest staffing firms in Australia, has been named as a Best Employer for the second consecutive year in Aon Hewitt’s latest Australian employer rankings.
It is the only recruitment firm to achieve Best Employer status in both 2012 and 2013. “Peoplebank is absolutely pinning its future to the fact that the way companies do business matters as much as what they do,” said Peoplebank’s CEO, Peter Acheson.
“Despite operating in an increasingly competitive industry, we are making our culture a major factor in why people want to work for us and with us,” he said.
The ranking is based on employee engagement, a compelling employer brand, effective leadership and high performance culture. Peoplebank outperformed other firms reaching an overall engagement score of 85%, compared with the average best employer score of 79%.
Almost 90% of staff said that Peoplebank “inspires me to do my best work very day”. 79% said the company “motivates me to contribute more than is normally required to complete my work.”
“Recruitment is a high-pressure, time-critical industry: and our success rests on being able to deliver quality outcomes, quickly. Having staff and management on the same side translates to a thousand incremental gains that add up to a competitive edge,” said Mr Acheson.
