Local not-for-profit employment services and training provider, VERTO, has been named as a finalist in the prestigious Australian HR Awards in the Australian HR Team of the Year and Employer of Choice (Public and Not-for-Profit) categories.
The Australian HR Awards have a long history celebrating excellence in Human Resources, but this year they will also be acknowledging innovation, hard work and determination in the face of a global pandemic.
As a finalist for Australian HR Team of the Year, the VERTO team has been recognised as one of the top HR teams in the country when assessed on leadership, communication, strategy, drive and results.
VERTO is also one of eight national finalists for Employer of Choice (Public and Not-for-Profit). This award recognises VERTO’s leadership, engagement, communication and employee benefits that make it an outstanding place to work.
“The VERTO team would be honoured to be named a finalist in these prestigious awards in any year, but even more so in 2021,” VERTO Chief Executive Officer Ron Maxwell said.
“Being named a finalist in not one but two categories recognises the fantastic job the team did to get everyone up and running remotely, at short notice, during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure we could continue to support the individuals and communities who rely on us.
“This is an important mission for us every day, but it became critical at the height of the pandemic when some of our most vulnerable clients were facing additional difficulties. I’m incredibly proud of how our team stepped up to the challenges of COVID-19 and ensured our team and clients continued to receive the support they needed.”
The Australian HR Award winners will be announced at a gala event in Sydney on 3 September 2021.
