 Amadeus, the leading provider of advanced technology solutions for the global travel industry, is honoured to be recognised as an Employer of Choice (EOC) in The Australian Business Awards 2017. The EOC accolade acknowledges organisations which have developed leading workplaces, that maximise the full potential of their employees through practices that demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.

Now in their twelfth year, The Australian Business Awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of comprehensive award categories. The EOC award assessment benchmarks participating organisations against world class performance standards and requires them to demonstrate their achievements across key areas of:

  • Organisational Culture
  • Leadership & Strategy
  • Employee Education, Training & Development
  • Employee Health, Safety & Satisfaction
  • Performance Management
  • Recognition & Remuneration

Georgina Boyd, Head of Human Resources for Amadeus Australia and New Zealand, said the company is honoured to be recognised for their culture of collaboration, empowerment and innovation.

“We are incredibly honoured and humbled to receive such a prestigious accolade amongst other leading Australian private and publicly listed companies. The EOC award recognises our continued effort to ensuring that our workplace culture, employee conditions and personal development opportunities remain first-class.

“With the phenomenal growth Amadeus is experiencing in the region, we have multiplied our efforts to build Amadeus’ reputation as an employer of choice, attract and nurture great talent, and instil pride to support motivation and retention. In Australia, we have an annual retention rate of more than 90 per cent and a culturally diverse workplace, with 15 different nationalities represented.

“Our people are the most valuable asset we have and as such, we place a strong value on our people, communication and culture.”

Ms Tara JohnstonAustralian Business Awards Program Director, said that innovative human resource management practices play an increasingly important role in sustaining leading edge competitiveness for organisations in times of rapid change and increased competition.

“There is a close relationship between innovation and employee engagement. Engaged employees often perform at a higher level and bring dedication and interest to their job, which often leads to innovation in the workplace.

“Organisations that incorporate employer branding as an integral part of their overall business strategy will gain a competitive advantage by taking a long-term approach to investing in talent acquisition. Never has current and future talent been more important to business success than it is today.”
