Bolton Clarke named an Employer of Choice
Bolton Clarke is pleased to have been named an Employer of Choice in the Australian Business Awards 2023.
The award recognises organisations and workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through established policies and practices and effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.
Judges considered the organisation's innovative in-house training and education programs, access to best practices through research and clinical expertise, ongoing professional development, wellbeing offerings and industry-leading safety management system.
CEO Stephen Muggleton said the award was a credit to Chief People Officer Mel Leahy, the skilled executive leadership team and the care managers and supervisors who have worked to develop frontline teams.
“Over the past five years our Chief People Officer Mel Leahy has developed and executed a range of strategies to support our 14,000 strong workforce,” he said.
“Those strategies have supported remarkable workplace health and safety records and tremendous leadership depth across all services streamed and businesses."
