Elantis Premium Funding has been named one of the 50 best places to work in Australia.
Elantis, part of the Gallagher family of businesses, was the only insurance organisation to take home the prestigious Great Place to Work award, joining firms such as Salesforce, Atlassian and Adobe on the list.
Compiled by global research firm Great Place to Work Inc, the study rates employers on two factors: employee surveys and an evaluation of nine specific practice areas.
Two-thirds of the total score a company receives comes from employee surveys and the anonymous responses from staff highlight why Etlantis took home the prize.
“Everyone from top down is accessible and they genuinely care about their people’s well-being, not just their job performance. It has a family feel and everyone works hard to make the company a successful place to work,” one employee said.
“Management are always available and willing to do anything to help. So approachable and eager to find a solution that suits all,” another employee continued.
Zrinka Lovrencic, MD of Great Place to Work Australia, praised all of the winners and noted that while it is a transformative and competitive business landscape, employers must remember the importance of culture.
“With a services sector heavy economy, employers now need to make a greater effort to improve their workplace cultures in order to retain employees,” Lovrencic said.
“This competitive pressure benefits everyone, as all workplaces can increase their levels of employee engagement. The companies that have made the 2018 study have risen to this challenge and exemplify workplace culture excellence.”
As a business founded on family values, Gallagher understands the importance of creating a positive culture. Gallagher is invested in creating a positive workplace through its own standards, enshrined in The Gallagher Way.
