MCT Wins Employer of Choice
26 July, 2018

We are proud to announce that Masonic Care Tasmania (MCT) has been awarded a winner in the 2018 Tasmanian Employer of Choice Awards!

These Tasmanian awards from Skills Tasmania (Department of State Growth) recognise local Tasmanian organisations that demonstrate contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for their staff, including opportunities for employees to build an effective work-life balance.

Winning this award is a significant acknowledgement for our state-wide organisation and a true reflection of the extraordinary people that work with us and the quality of care we provide to more than 1,000 people across the state.

Some of the reasons MCT was nominated to be an Employer of Choice include:

  • Our new Reward & Recognition program;
  • Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP);
  • Our new Health & Wellbeing program that includes free healthy snacks state-wide;
  • A new Performance Management Framework; and
  • The addition of Domestic Violence Leave in our recent Employment Agreement.

A special thanks to those residential staff who also met with the panel of judges as part of the judging process. Your contribution was highly valued and we couldn’t have achieved this without you.

We may be an Employer of Choice, but we want to be the best employer we can be. We want to be sharing our new initiatives with others in the industry to help them to also create positive change and have a worthwhile impact in their workplace. As an Employer of Choice, we will continue to push ourselves and look for new ways to improve, grow and support the people we walk alongside.
