We are proud to be the only digital agency to make the annual Employer of Choice list for 2015.
Quite an achievement given our merger with Bruce Clay Australasia in mid-2013. This change saw two companies (and effectively two cultures) combine to become one integrated offering.
The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice recognises organisations which have developed leading workplaces. It is judged on the ability to maximise the full potential of their workforce through effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.
According to the MFA 2014 survey, the facts for our industry are:
- 53% of agency staff have less than 4 years’ experience
- The average voluntary turnover is 26.8%
- 13% of these go to a competing agency – the second highest being leaving the industry at 4.3%
We have decreased turnover by 27% in the last 12 months
The secret, according to Joint CEO, Jeremy Bolt, is deceptively simple. He says, “At Resolution we aim to #BeRemarkable. Our vision is to be a remarkable digital partner to those who work for us and those we work with. People are our most valuable asset, without a doubt. This award is evidence of a passionate RESO culture that is supported by people-driven initiatives. Ultimately, these have lead us to some of the best recruitment and retention rates in the digital industry. All of this means that we have the most engaged and motivated teams to deliver outstanding value for our clients.”
Kate Gamble, one the Directors here at Resolution as well as the Head of Content, also won the Grand Prix at the 30Under30 Awards, this year. This was largely due to her unique and brave submission on how to get the most from the next generation of media talent – a generation who need more intrinsic motivation to be inspired and retained.
Ms Tara Johnston, Program Director, says, “For a decade, The Australian Business Awards have conducted knowledge building programs which focus on organisations that foster a supportive workplace culture through great leadership and clear strategies enabling their employees to achieve high performance.
“Organisations that closely tie their culture and leadership in with their workforce can truly maximise employee engagement which is essential to a successful enterprise,” Ms Johnston added.
