Rock­end has been awarded the win­ner of the Em­ployer of Choice award at the North Eastern NSW Busi­ness Cham­ber Awards. The hon­our was de­liv­ered on 26 June 2015, in front of 300 guests in a cer­e­mony which was hosted Luna Park.

As stated on the of­fi­cial NSW Busi­ness Cham­ber Awards web­site, the Em­ployer of Choice award “recog­nises ex­cel­lence in HR and Work­place Health and Safety ini­tia­tives and pro­grams that pro­vide a stim­u­lat­ing and sup­port­ive work­place for the ben­e­fit of the or­gan­i­sa­tion and em­ployee. Pro­grams in­clude em­ployee ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing and de­vel­op­ment, as well as em­ployee per­for­mance, re­mu­ner­a­tion, recog­ni­tion and re­ward ini­tia­tives”.

Over the course of the year Rock­end has in­vested heav­ily in the de­vel­op­ment of each in­di­vid­ual by rein­vig­o­rat­ing the in­ter­nal learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment pro­gram and in­tro­duc­ing a Health and Well­be­ing pro­gram. These pro­grams in­clude ac­tiv­i­ties and op­por­tu­ni­ties such as ac­cess to the gym, daily break­fast, snooze rooms and ac­cess to online learn­ing tools.

Rock­end’s HR Man­ager, Dean Car­pen­ter, ex­plains the sig­nif­i­cant im­pact these pro­grams have had on the busi­ness. “Since im­ple­ment­ing these pro­grams we have seen Busi­ness En­gage­ment rise from 84 per cent in 2013 to 98 per cent in 2014. Per­sonal En­gage­ment has also risen, from 81 per cent in 2013 to 97 per cent in 2014.

“Our busi­ness phi­los­o­phy is to cre­ate a sup­port­ive and en­gag­ing en­vi­ron­ment for all staff. We be­lieve that if our staff are en­gaged with the busi­ness they will pro­vide a pre­mium level of ser­vice to our cus­tomers, which in turn leads to a suc­cess­ful busi­ness,” Dean ex­plains.

“Win­ning this award is an ex­cit­ing ac­knowl­edge­ment of the great work­place cul­ture Rock­end has cre­ated and con­tin­ues to main­tain. As a re­sult of the win, we are now en­tered into the State NSW Busi­ness Awards, to be held in Dar­ling Har­bour on 27 Novem­ber this year. “
