ABOUT THE AWARD

Retail Employer of the Year

WHAT IS THIS AWARD ABOUT?

Retailworld Resourcing launched Retail Employer of the Year in 2011 to recognise and celebrate retail businesses that embrace, promote and champion an outstanding employer brand.

Candidates, employees and customers are evaluating companies more holistically than ever. In the job market candidates are having robust conversations about what employers are offering to foster a culture and environment that aligns with their values. The businesses that hold themselves accountable by living and breathing their values are the ones securing and retaining top talent.

Past and present retail staff, as well as the general public, are welcomed to vote for the company they think stands out from the crowd as the best place to work. The retailer with the most votes cast in their category via voteretail.com will be recognised as the ‘Retail Employer of the Year’.

We know different things matter to different people, so voting reasons can vary. Below we have included some key elements that are regularly identified by the market as the key contributors to an outstanding employer brand.
