Hexagon’s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division has been recognised for the fourth year as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards (ABA) 2022. In their 17th year, the awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program that recognises firms that depict the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of established business and product award categories.
What does the recognition mean for Hexagon?
The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice (EOC®) recognises firms that develop leading workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through established policies and practices that show effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.
Based in Australia, Fabio Yada, Senior Vice President of Hexagon’s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division Asia Pacific, said, “We are honoured and delighted to be awarded this prestigious recognition as we continue to grow in Australia. As the leadership team continuously seeks to implement improvements based on our employee feedback, it’s valuable validation we are doing the right thing, especially after the challenges all have experienced during COVID.”
“One example of change is, while we maintain and upgrade our traditional offices in Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, we also have a work-from-anywhere policy as the backbone of our workplace flexibility program,” Yada further said.
What were the executive’s thoughts on the awards?
“There has never been a more pertinent time for organisations to transform workplace collaboration, creating new opportunities to innovate and extend their competitive advantage by harnessing the power of people. The convergence of work and learning underpins the continual growth of an organisation’s capabilities, developing new skills and expertise, improving performance, and building knowledge,” said Tara Johnston, Program Director.
“Fifty-three firms have been selected for this year’s ABA Employer of Choice Awards. Many of these have shown leadership in talent management by reimagining ways of collaborating and learning that can support and motivate employees at every level of the organisation.”
