Employment Minister Congratulates Top Employer
Monday, 25th June 2012 at 11:20 am

Australia’s top 50 workplaces as listed by BRW magazine’s annual Best Places to Work List have been visited by the Federal Minister for Employment Bill Shorten.

Shorten has encouraged other Australian employers and employees to look to these workplaces for lessons on how to improve themselves.

“I absolutely believe that what everyone wants in life is a good job,” Shorten said.

“A good job is one which employees and employers want to turn up to every day. It's one where teamwork is paramount, where everyone’s insights are valued. It's where the whole team feels empowered. It's where you feel that you're getting skills development.”

The Minister also gave special mention to the winner of this year’s Best Place to Work, Melbourne based IT firm OBS.

“I have today rung the managing director of OBS, Andy Neuman, to personally offer my congratulations to him and his team,” he said.

“He told me the secret of their success was fundamentally to be honest with people, build trust with staff, be collaborative and create energy from staff who feel engaged.”
