Local Government Workplace Survey

It is now well established that organisations viewed as a ‘great place to work’ by both existing and prospective staff will achieve higher levels of performance and profitability as a result of:

  • Their ability to attract a higher calibre of mission-critical talent in larger numbers, reducing recruitment costs
  • Their ability also to retain that talent, reducing costs associated with labour turnover and retraining
  • Huge productivity gains via a more highly motivated, committed, experienced and capable workforce
  • Significantly higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty via those same highly motivated, committed, capable employees
  • The favourable image this reputation creates in the eyes of all stakeholders, and the public at large
