Winners announced at this year’s Workplace Giving Awards
1 December 2021 at 2:56 pm

Now in their sixth year, the awards recognise Australia’s leading companies and charities for their innovative workplace giving programs.

Energy Australia has taken gold in the Best Overall Program for a large business in this year’s Workplace Giving Awards.

The energy retailer and generator took out the award after announcing that 67 per cent of its 2,300 strong team are involved in the company’s workplace giving program. Donating just over $1 million since the program launched three years ago. 

Now in their sixth year, the Workplace Giving Awards recognise Australia’s leading companies and charities for their innovative workplace giving programs. 

This year, awards were presented across seven categories: Best Overall Program (Large), Best Overall Program (SME), Best Launch/Refresh (Employer), Best Workplace Giving (Unsung Hero), Most Innovative Charity and Employer Partnership, Best Pro Bono / Workplace Volunteering and Best Innovation (Charity or Employer). 

Other gold winners on the night included The Smith Family, Kain Lawyers, McKinsey & Company and King & Wood Mallesons. 

Jenny Geddes, CEO of Workplace Giving Australia, said that the organisation had been delighted at the number of entries it had received, particularly after such a difficult year. 

“The WGA team and I were so grateful that in this, the sixth year of the awards, so many organisations took the time to enter,” Geddes said. 

“Many did so in the knowledge that they will not only be in the running to win an award, but they are sharing their stories to help others learn from their success.”

Gold Awards were presented to: 

  • Best Overall Program (Large): EnergyAustralia
  • Best Overall Program (SME): Kain Lawyers
  • Best Launch / Refresh (Employer): McKinsey and Company
  • Best Pro Bono/Workplace Volunteering: King and Wood Mallesons
  • Best Innovation: EnergyAustralia
  • Most Innovative Charity / Employer Partnership: The Smith Family with Pearson Australia
  • Best Workplace Giving Unsung Hero: Tomago Aluminium (Wayne Pringle)
