VERSA is the only Australian company, and among only eight companies based outside the US to make the inaugural Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators, joining Amazon, 3M, Salesforce, Chobani, L’Oréal, Morgan Stanley, P&G, and others.
Fast Company has just announced its first Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honouring businesses and organisations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2019 Best Workplaces for Innovators showcases 50 winners from a variety of industries, including biotech, consumer packaged goods, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. Working together, Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored all 362 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 50 companies. The 2019 awards feature workplaces from around the world.
Says Kath Blackham, CEO, VERSA: “After a year of recognition for VERSA’s culture as an employer, it’s humbling to be recognised on an international stage for creating an innovative environment for our employees. We are delighted to be one of eight companies outside of the US from the Top 50.”
It has been an exciting first half of the year for VERSA, having won substantial new business including the $2.8m digital transformation project with City of Port Phillip, and opening Sydney and Singapore offices.
Says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company: “Other titles catalog perquisites and benefits. Fast Company seeks to highlight workplaces that attract and retain the best talent by creating environments where employees are empowered to put forth bold ideas, engage in radical experiments, and even fail, in the name of innovation.”
