Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, announced 55 Best Workplaces™ in Technology for 2024 in Australia across three size categories.

Categories included – micro (companies with less than 30 employees), small (companies with 30 to 99 employees), medium (companies with 100 to 999 employees) and large (companies with 1,000 or more employees).

The companies were shortlisted using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. In curating what makes a Best Workplace™ in Australia, they used the same methodology as when curating the renowned Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in the US and Fortune’s World’s Best Workplaces.

The Best Workplaces™ in Technology List 2024 highlights technology organisations across the country committed to fostering equity in the workplace, ensuring their employees feel safe, heard, challenged and valued.

Rebecca Moulynox, General Manager of Great Place to Work Australia, highlighted that in 2024, the influence of leadership within organisations is more critical than ever. As Australia increasingly becomes a centre for technological innovation, the importance of cultivating trust, encouraging innovation, and ensuring fair opportunities is vital, especially in a tech industry driven by advancements in AI and cutting-edge technologies.

“What sets these top fifty-five Best Workplaces apart is the integrity of their leaders and their dedication to fulfilling commitments. This calibre of leadership fosters trust and cultivates an exceptional employee experience, which transforms organisations. Such workplaces not only attract and nurture top talent but also establish dynamic, resilient cultures that drive business growth and enhance the broader industry and the Australian business landscape,” Moulynox stated.
