Today, Hudson RPO APAC was honoured to be recognised as one of Australia and New Zealand’s Best Places to Work. The prestigious annual list, published by The Australian Financial Review and Boss Magazine, is based on a rigorous assessment process managed by Australia’s leading behavioural science consultancy, Inventium.

We were honoured to rank #9 on the Professional Services list, from nearly 1,000 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand. The assessment was made up of a staff survey and a written submission, with questions relating to policies, practices and programs that exist within our organisation to support and get the best out of our employees. The methodology is underpinned by Inventium’s Workplaces of the Future framework, which identifies ten key factors that are critical to employees feeling motivated and engaged at work and is supported by extensive research. The full list of honourees can be viewed AFR Best Places to Work 2021. Hudson RPO APAC are thrilled to be recognised for our achievements and practices around flexibility, employee health & wellbeing, diversity, equity & inclusion and reward & recognition– all of which are brought to life through dedicated people programs and are the foundations of our culture.

“On behalf of all Hudson RPO leaders, we are thrilled to be recognised as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in Australia & New Zealand. It is a testament to our people and the unique culture that has been fostered since our inception just four years ago, that has given us the ability to create a working environment that allows people the freedom and flexibility to thrive in all facets of their life.

“Although our teams are dispersed, working at different client sites, we place great emphasis on building a unique and distinctive culture, where everyone feels engaged, valued and part of one overarching team. We are very excited by our people programs like Thrive (Health and Wellbeing), Balance (Flexible Work Practices) , Belong (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) and Accelerate (Learning & Development). These programs ensure Hudson RPO attracts and retains the very best talent in our industry and operates as a tight-knit community of people that share common values and goals.  I’d like to thank each and every one of our people – who are the foundation of why Hudson RPO is truly a fantastic place to work.”
