The best places to work have purpose, encourage autonomy, are inclusive, provide flexibility and most importantly, support their team members.
Five Good Friends has always recognised that one of the keys to providing their customers with exceptional care is having an exceptional team of people.
So, it was wonderful to be recognised in the annual Australian Financial Review Best Places to Work Awards. The awards are judged by independent behavioural science consultancy Inventium.
The awards rank Australia's and New Zealand’s best workplaces across 10 different sectors including Health Industries.
To be one of the best places to work in Australasia, and indeed, to be an organisation that will thrive in the future, the independent judging process scored entrants across 10 key attributes including autonomy, flexibility, purpose and connectedness.
CEO, Simon Lockyer, said:
"there were more than 1,000 entries received from organisations across Australia and New Zealand. Five Good Friends placed 8th in the Health Industries category - a wonderful achievement for an organisation that is rapidly growing and only four years young."
Five Good Friends has built been built focusing on the customer and understanding their needs. The goal has always been to design and deliver a completely different in-home care and support service. One that people would trust and love. One that truly has the customer and their family at the centre.
Simon Lockyer said:
"The in-home care sector is facing significant challenges. At the top of the list is attracting and retaining highly committed and engaged talent. To be a great organisation that people trust and love, we need great people, it’s that simple.
I am so proud of our entire team and thank them for making Five Good Friends one of the Best Places to Work.”
