Port Stephens Council has won the prestigious title of Australian Employer of Choice in the Public Sector and NFP category at the Australian HR Awards.

Beating competitors such as Australia Post, the Council was announced the winner at The Westin Hotel in Sydney on September 9 after a rigorous nomination process.

The Council’s General Manager, Peter Gesling, accepted the award and said winning the category was extremely rewarding, given the calibre of finalists.

“Just to be recognised as a finalist among national public sector and NFP organisations was rewarding in itself, but to be named the overall winner is incredible.

“Our organisation works really hard to focus on providing the best possible work environment for our people and we place priority on continually improving employee engagement,” he said.

“This, coupled with our strong Enterprise Agreement, our learning and development programs plus the cohesive culture driven by our leaders and our dedicated HR team are what has led us here tonight.

“I am very proud to be accepting this award,” Mr Gesling said.

The Australian HR Awards celebrate excellence by leaders in the HR profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements in people management.
