Announcing the Australia launch of HRO's Employee Experience Awards


After running successfully across Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong, this prestigious awards ceremony is set to honour organisations that create exceptional EX in Australia.

Human Resources Online, a leading source of HR news and insights, is delighted to announce the launch of the Employee Experience Awards in Australia. After running successfully across Singapore and Malaysia for three years, and Hong Kong for two years, this prestigious awards ceremony is set to honour organisations that create exceptional EX in Australia.

Australia's vibrant and diverse business landscape, coupled with its commitment to fostering a culture of employee wellbeing, makes it the perfect destination for the debut of the Employee Experience Awards.

As an increasingly recognised measure of organisational success, employee experience has gained significant importance in recent years. It is now widely acknowledged that companies with satisfied and engaged employees tend to outperform their peers in various aspects, including productivity, customer satisfaction, and overall profitability.

The Employee Experience Awards distinguishes itself through its comprehensive approach, focusing on four pillars that form the cornerstone of a positive employee experience:

  • Leadership: Acknowledging the critical role of leaders in shaping an organisation's culture, this pillar recognises companies that exhibit exceptional leadership qualities, inspiring their employees and setting a clear vision for success.
  • Learning: Recognising the importance of continuous learning and development, this pillar celebrates organisations that invest in their employees' growth, providing them with opportunities to enhance their skills, knowledge, and capabilities.
  • Employee engagement: Understanding the significance of engaged employees in driving organisational performance, this pillar honours companies that foster a sense of belonging, motivation, and commitment among their workforce, resulting in high levels of engagement.
  • Talent acquisition: Highlighting the significance of attracting and retaining top talent, this pillar commends organisations that demonstrate excellence in talent acquisition strategies, ensuring the recruitment of individuals who align with the company's values and contribute to its success.

By recognising and celebrating organisations that excel in these four pillars, the Employee Experience Awards aims to inspire and encourage companies across Australia to prioritise employee wellbeing and create environments that empower and engage their workforce.

Aditi Sharma Kalra, Editor-in-Chief of Human Resources Online, expressed her excitement about the debut. She stated: "We are thrilled to introduce the Employee Experience Awards to the Australian employment landscape. Seeing as consumer-grade employee experience (EX) is a crucial aspect of organisational success, these awards provide a platform to celebrate companies that prioritise a seamless, consistent, and beautiful EX."

Employing a refined methodology that harnesses the collective wisdom of esteemed senior HR experts and renowned thought leaders, the Employee Experience Awards Australia 2023 sets out to establish itself as the definitive programme, recognising and honouring Australia's exceptional organisations that have truly mastered the art of prioritising the employee experience.

Winners of the Asian editions of the Employee Experience Awards include Accenture, AWS, Carlsberg, FedEx, GlobalFoundries, HP, L’Oreal, Medtronic, and Pfizer.

Organisations that put their employees first and drive excellence in the workplace are encouraged to throw their hat in the ring and set the benchmark for Australia’s employee-centric culture.
