“Ultimately, if we’re not making things here better for our people, I’m not doing my job and we won’t have the best talent.” – Aimee Buchanan, GroupM
It’s powerful that mental health has been referenced in these rankings as an important factor as part of a companies’ success. From the flexible working hours at WPP that factor time out for wellness programs to the wellness expenses at Salesforce that allow employees to claim items such as home gym equipment. Prioritising employee wellbeing isn’t going unnoticed with our partners being recognised for their policies that create inclusive and supportive environments. In Australia, Salesforce’s support for their transgender workers has also been highlighted. This includes a $50,000 package that is available to transgender workers to accommodate medical expenses, such as gender affirmation surgeries, medications and therapies. In Singapore Unilever was ranked the number 1 company to work for, highlighting their Enabling Mark Award which recognises organisations paving the way for a more inclusive society.
