The votes are in and the country’s leading retail employers have been revealed.

In its second year, the Retail Employer of the Year Award by Retailworld Resourcing has recognised retail brands who are offering its employees the whole package – culture, work/life balance, career progression opportunities and incentives with a salary to match.

This year Repco was announce the winner the large category, while TS 14+ took out the medium category and Perth-base retailer Gone Bazzar took out the small category.

John Caldwell, CEO of Retailworld, said: For most, the perception is employment branding is the same as the consumer brand and that couldn’t be further from the truth.

“A strong employment brand looks firstly at what you stand for as an employer, what the benefits are of working for you and most importantly how you live up to those promises.

“This award is a chance for retailer’s teams to let them know that they appreciate the employer’s efforts.”
