The Tasmanian Employer of Choice program aims to assist employers to attract and retain skilled workers to support the growth of their business.


Employers that care about their people and build well-managed, inspiring workplaces gain a positive reputation among their staff. These organisations have an edge in the competition for skilled labour and a better chance to achieve high performance because talented people want a great place to work. Satisfied staff, whose ideas are valued, are more productive and provide better services, helping to win new customers.

The Tasmanian Employer of Choice program is widely regarded as recognising Tasmania’s best practitioners in creating a work culture that attracts, retains and grows the best people by actively promoting and catering for positive work life balance. The following Tasmanian case studies explore the strategies and initiatives successful organisations do to promote and support a great working environment for their people.
