Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre has been named an “Employer of Choice” for the third year running in the Australian Business Awards 2019.
The annual awards recognize organizations which have developed workplaces that maximize the full potential of their workforce through practices that demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.
MCEC’s diverse and inclusive culture, wide range of health and well-being activities and variety of career development opportunities were key to its recognition as an Employer of Choice.
MCEC Chief Executive, Peter King recognized the role of all employees in contributing to the achievement.
“This is a tremendous acknowledgement of our employees here at MCEC,” King says. “To again be named an Employer of Choice demonstrates the pride, diligence and genuine passion our people have for our customers and achieving industry excellence. I truly believe it’s the strength of our people that differentiates us from our competition.”
Helen Fairclough, MCEC director of People, Culture and Business Improvement, said the awards provide a unique opportunity to benchmark MCEC against top organizations nationally.
“To be named Employer of Choice for the third year in a row is a remarkable achievement,” Fairclough says. “This accolade is testament to our hard-working employees, who share a commitment for building a culture that fosters collaboration and creativity. It is important for us to continue to focus on our employee experience and invest in our talent, so we can maintain our status as a leading employer of choice in both the Australian and wider global events industry.”
As a winner of the Australian awards, MCEC will again be benchmarked in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards.
