CSL ranked fourth on the Health Industry list, from a total of more than 750 organisations nominated in all sectors across Australia and New Zealand. The assessment was made up of an independent survey completed by over 350 CSL employees and a written submission, with questions relating to policies, practices and programs that exist within CSL to support employees and ensure they are able to perform at their best.
CSL was recognised for its achievements and practices in support of professional development opportunities, agile working and health & wellbeing activities, among other initiatives.
Executive Director, Global Human Resources for CSL, Yvette Saunders said, “This is a proud moment for the CSL workforce – all of whom strive to bring their best selves to work every single day.
“Our values and the policies we have in place provide important guidance to our team and set the tone for good decision making. But ultimately, it’s our people who model our values and ensure that we work in a culture where everyone’s contributions are valued.”
CSL offers a range of workplace benefits designed to support individuals from diverse backgrounds with their career aspirations, including a global agile working policy; professional development programs designed to support ‘Promising Futures’; study assistance; support for international assignments and a global employee share plan that empowers employees to share in the ownership, growth and future success of CSL.
“Our workplace environment is collaborative, global and dynamic, which fosters innovation and motivates the best and brightest to succeed,” said Ms Saunders.
