Nestlé Australia was voted as one of the country’s top 10 employers from a pool of 150 private and public companies – a position the company has maintained for the past three years.
The Randstad Awards, announced in Sydney last week, revealed the winners of Australia’s largest employer opinion survey.
More than 10,000 people rated the companies on 17 key metrics that included categories covering career opportunities to a company’s social values and work-life balance.
For the second consecutive year, Nestlé was chosen as the most attractive FMCG company and was placed 7th overall, with the next closest consumer goods company coming in at number 14.
Randstad reported that the attractiveness of the FMCG sector had jumped in 2016 and was now second to the aviation sector, with 40 per cent of respondents stating they would like to work at a consumer goods company.
Nestlé CEO, Mr Trevor Clayton, said the awards reflected the sentiment in the community that the world’s largest food manufacturer was a desirable place to work.
“Nestlé is a company with a strong purpose – we care not only about producing nutritious, tasty products for our consumers but we also care about the communities in which we operate,” he said.
Mr Clayton acknowledged the huge surge of graduates now seeking employment with Nestlé.
“Young people want to work for companies like ours – they can see we are really making a difference in people’s lives and communities,” he said.
“Current employees can also see that the work we do at Nestlé has a huge impact on the community – from the high quality nutritious food we produce to the initiatives we have in place all around Oceania to help people live healthier and more active lives – it makes them want to be part of the journey and stay for the long haul,” he said.
