LinkedIn Top Companies where Australia wants to work now 2018.

Congratulations to 15 Australian Network on Disability (AND) Members recognised in LinkedIn’s 2018 Top Companies list. Representing the top 25 companies where Australian professionals most want to work, we’re proud to be part of such a strong network of organisations that have shown a commitment to diversity, wellness and inclusion.

The Top Companies list is based on the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn members and looks at four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention.

As an organisation that supports its members to attract and retain employees with disability, we see firsthand the benefits that come from an open commitment to diversity and initiatives that promote a mentally healthy, safe and inclusive workplace culture.
