Mantra Group has been recognised as one of Australia’s leading employers after being awarded a gold medal in the Human Resources Director Magazine (HRD) ‘Employer of Choice’ survey (500+ employees category).
The annual survey, which uniquely rates companies from the perspective of their employees, assesses a wide range of key areas, from remuneration satisfaction through to leadership effectiveness, but in essence the survey centres around team engagement.
Mantra Group Executive Director Human Resources Cherie McGill said the award win is the ultimate salute from the Group’s loyal and highly engaged team members.
“They’re extremely proud of whom they work for, and we’re extremely honoured to have them as part of our team,” said Ms McGill.
“The win is great validation of our team’s passion and hard work and testament of our recent employee engagement score of 86% and lower than industry staff turnover.”
Mantra Group, the largest Australian-based hotel and resort operator, also finished strongly in a number of other sub-categories such as learning and development, career progression, diversity and inclusion.
“We’re a vibrant, friendly and fun workplace, offering a wide variety of training and development opportunities to team members at every level,” said Ms McGill.
“We pride ourselves on fulfilling our mantra of ‘knowing what matters’ to our guests and team members and promote a culture of inclusion and diversity within our workplace with initiatives relating to flexibility, recruitment and empowerment.”
The full list of ‘Employer of Choice’ survey award winners is published in the current (15.05) issue of HRD Magazine.
Companies vying for this year’s title of Employer of Choice were from a range of industries from banking to health, hospitality, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, professional services and more.
