Talent has been named a recipient of Gallup’s global Top 40 Exceptional Workplace Awards for the fourth year in a row – the only Australian-based company to be recognised in the group of winners.
Talent was recognised by Gallup for putting its team engagement at the heart of the business strategy and creating a workplace culture to match. Talent’s continued pursuit to create a world leading culture saw increased engagement, improved wellbeing, resilient team members and deep connections. This resulted in a better experience for contractors, candidates, and customers. Talent’s strong culture was the key differentiator to the success of the business during COVID. As an award winner, Talent ranks among the most elite organisations around the globe.
Gallup’s meta-analysis on team engagement and performance is the most comprehensive workplace study ever conducted, with data on more than 2 million employees in 276 organisations across 54 industries and 96 countries. Statistically, only 20% of global employees are ‘fully engaged’ - defined as being committed to their work and connected to their workplace. The engagement level at Talent is 80%.
Talent Global CEO, Mark Nielsen, commented on what this award means to the company. “What an incredible recognition from Gallup for the fourth year in a row for Talent. Receiving this award for 2022 is even more gratifying as the past year has been one where leaders have needed to balance empathy towards their team showing their own vulnerability and authenticity, whilst ensuring what we do is correct by all Talent’s stakeholders. The award is recognition that at Talent we excelled at this. Gallup has also highlighted that the purpose of these awards is to recognise and celebrate companies who are reaching new heights of what's humanly possible with cultures that change the way the world works. This aligns with Talent’s vision, mission and values”.
Paul Batchelor, Talent Chairman, commended the team on their brilliant work. “Talent is consistently pushing boundaries, living our values, and above all putting people first. I am thrilled that we are receiving this award for the fourth year running. The commitment from the team globally to ensure that all teams are recognised, growing, and connected is exceptional.”
Georgia Townsend, Talent People Business Partner is passionate about the sensational work culture that Talent have fostered. “Our people are at the core of everything we do here at Talent, and our partnership with Gallup enables us to continually foster a culture that is building a better world of work for all. Every single team member at Talent has won this award, by consistently recognising their team members’ achievements, supporting each other to grow and prioritising inclusion at all levels.”
