CHOICE's hiring and staff management practices have earned it a spot as a
finalist in the prestigious Australian HR Institute (AHRI) Awards.
The organisation competed against Deloitte, Programmed and Medibank for
the Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO Gender Equity in the Workplace award.
The award recognises excellence in gender equity initiatives and programs
in the workplace.
Deloitte was ultimately named the winner, but Jessica Hill, the director of people and culture at CHOICE, says the organisation has come a long way in a short period of time.
"In an effort to reflect the Australian community, we have a focus on diversity and inclusion.
"We only set out on our first diversity and inclusion strategy two years ago and to be recognised for our efforts toward gender equity is a huge honour," she says.
CHOICE recently disclosed that females account for 57% of its workforce,
and that 50% of all employees promoted to manager roles were women.
It has a low turnover rate at 5% and employee engagement is strong at 74%.
The AHRI Awards is Australia's most prestigious human resources recognition
program. They are independently judged by an advisory panel of global
leaders from the HR and business community.
