Rhys Ryan, Chief Executive Officer at Porter Novelli Australia

Porter Novelli Australia has been awarded the number five spot in the 2022 AFR BOSS ‘Best Places to Work’ list for Media & Marketing. The AFR BOSS Best Places to Work List recognises organisations that pioneer best-practices in areas such as wellbeing, flexibility and equality – to attract and retain staff who are productive, creative and focused.

What were the executive thoughts on the recognition?

“We are proud to be recognised in the 2022 AFR BOSS Best Places to Work List for the first time. Our team at Porter Novelli defines our culture and the purpose-led work we deliver for our customers. Our employee offering centres on flexibility, diversity and continuous learning,” said Rhys Ryan, chief executive officer at Porter Novelli Australia.

“Unpinning these principles are a range of benefits – from an annual Curiosity Fund of $1000 per person for self-directed learning and development, to a program of rewards to recognise those who go above and beyond in their roles with us. This recognition sits most proudly for us alongside our multiple years’ accreditation as our industry’s only Employer of Choice.”

How did Porter Novelli fare in the industry?

Porter Novelli was ranked fifth in the Media & Marketing list, from nearly 750 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand. The prestigious annual list, published by The Australian Financial Review and the BOSS magazine, is based on an employee survey and written submission, and assessed by leading behavioural science consultancy Inventium.

Submissions are assessed on how an organisation supports teams to improve and grow over time, provide choice in what employees work on, and working practices to help employees rise to the challenges of their roles. Porter Novelli is one of Australia’s leading communications firms, with a heritage of innovation and leadership spanning nearly 50 years.

It is part of Clemenger Group, Australasia’s largest marketing and communications network.
