Employer of Choice Awards now open

The Tasmanian Government is a proud supporter of the Employer of Choice program, which helps local employers to attract and retain the skilled workers they need to grow their business.

The 2018 Employer of Choice Awards are now open and I’d like to invite all Tasmanian companies, not-for-profits, community and government organisations to enter.

Becoming an Employer of Choice demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to its people.

Being formally recognised as an Employer of Choice brings a sense of pride and achievement for employees.

Employers of Choice also say that their businesses are more successful because of the relationship they have with their employees.

Award winners are entitled to display the distinctive red Employer of Choice logo when advertising their business and seeking new employees – it promotes their organisation and Tasmania as a place of choice for skilled workers.

Already there are 84 accredited Tasmanian Employers of Choice collectively employing around 15 000 Tasmanians.

Entries close on 15 December 2017 with winners announced in mid-2018. For more information or to enter go to
