Employer of Choice

About Employer of Choice

Employers of Choice are recognised by the Tasmanian Government for demonstrating contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for their staff.

The Employer of Choice program was established in 2006. It aims to assist employers to attract and retain skilled workers to support the growth and sustainability of their business.

Since its inception the Tasmanian Government has recognised 67 Tasmanian organisations as Employers of Choice.

There are three key elements to the program:

  • Employer of Choice Awards - to recognise and promote Tasmanian organisations that successfully attract and retain skilled staff by creating a great place to work.
  • Knowledge sharing events - workshops, forums and information sessions where Tasmanian businesses come together to share ideas about successful workplace practices.
  • Professional development and business networking - for recognised Employers of Choice.

For further information and, more importantly, to hear what others say about Employer of Choice please refer to the Employer of Choice video and testimonials page.

Skills Tasmania manages the Employer of Choice program, with representatives from recognised Employers of Choice contributing significantly to the activities and strategic direction.
