Employsure Recognised for Innovation and Leadership at 2016 Australian HR Awards

Employsure Recognised for Innovation and Leadership at 2016 Australian HR Awards


We were proud to be nominated as finalists for HR Champion (CEO) of the Year and Best Reward and Recognition Program at the Australian HR Awards show. The event was hosted at The Star Sydney convention centre and attended by over 760 HR professionals.

According to HC Online, the quality of entries was particularly high this year. The awards ceremony and selection process, run by Key Media,  went through a rigorous process to narrow down the list of finalists.

Employsure received a large amount of online nominations, which was followed by equal amounts of praise from team members, and past and current clients. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received and wish to thank everyone who voted for us.

As for the awards themselves, the category for Australian HR Champion (CEO) of the Year award recognises CEOs who have driven successful HR strategies, by prioritising the needs of people in new and innovative ways.

Other finalists in the running for Australia HR Champion (CEO) of the Year included David Smith of True Alliance, Cormac Barry of Sports Betm and Simon McGrath of AccorHotels.

Our approach to empowering employers with unlimited advice day or night,  along with our innovative online presence, was recognised by esteemed figures in the human resources industry. Equal commendation was given to our founder, Edward Mallet, whose vision and guidance has resulted in massive growth for Employsure.

Along with our innovative approach to human resources (HR) we were recognised for valuing the contributions from our employees. As finalists for the Best Reward & Recognition Program award, we were thrilled to see our employee incentives and awards program recognised by leading figures in the HR industry.

Our success at the Australian HR Awards has come off the back of several achievements for us in 2016. In August, Employsure was ranked 13th on the Financial Review’s list of Most Innovative Companies. In the very same month, we were also ranked the 21st best company to work for by the Great Places to Work organisation.

Since expanding our operations in Australia and New Zealand, we have been able to provide unlimited advice day or night and support to more than 10, 500 clients. Our advice line has helped over 10,500 businesses with  their work relations issues, including health, safety and insurance-related matters.

We are honoured to be recognised as leaders in our industry and wish to congratulate all the nominees for their success. The Employsure team had a fantastic evening at the Australian HR Awards and we hope to be there for next years’ event also.

On behalf of the team at Employsure, we wish to thank everyone for nominating and supporting us. 2016 has been a fantastic year for us and we look forward to an even more successful 2017.
