A COMMITMENT to supporting employee engagement and happiness in the workplace is a top priority for Glenview Community Services.
The Glenorchy-based aged care provider has been recognised as an Employer of Choice for 2016, joining 70 other Tasmanian businesses to be nominated for their contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for staff.
“We are thrilled our employees continue to enjoy coming to work, but it is not something we take for granted,” Glenview chief executive officer Lucy O’Flaherty said.
“It is important for businesses to listen to employees and be flexible in order to build a supportive, empowering and enjoyable place of work,” she said.
Glenview runs a popular annual calendar of events featuring summer balls and lantern festivals, which has helped foster a fun and inviting workplace environment.
Ms O’Flaherty said Glenview worked closely with other independent aged care service providers in southern Tasmania to provide the best services for their employees, clients and residents.
“By working together, we are able to learn from each other, avoid mistakes and better handle potential complications as they arise,” she said.
Employers of Choice employ more than 14,000 Tasmanians.
Since the awards were established in 2006, outstanding organisations have received Employer of Choice accreditation from the Tasmanian Government to support the growth and sustainability of local businesses.
