HRD names Publicis Groupe Australia a winner in the prestigious 2021 Employer of Choice awards

The acknowledgement has closely followed last year’s recognition of the Publicis Groupe as a finalist in the Australian HR Awards in the Employer of Choice and Best Change Management Strategy categories.

For this year’s awards, HRD has selected organisations that demonstrate best practice leadership as an employer, providing initiatives and programs that support career progression, training and professional development, and acknowledging a job well done in an inclusive workplace. 

Earlier this year, Balance Internet joined forces with the Publicis Groupe, the global communications leader eager to bolster their commerce capabilities with the acquisition of Balance Internet. 

The alignment between the Publicis Groupe and Balance Internet strengthens the joint vision to become a leading digital commerce provider in APAC. Further, enabling Balance Internet to continue to accelerate growth by expanding geographically across ANZ and into new sectors. 

Publicis Groupe ANZ strives to provide rich learning experiences and broad career opportunities to enable people to grow exponentially within the organisation. Continually, this is demonstrated through a wide range of incentives from the organisation’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging strategy to the industry-leading parental leave policy, comprehensive L&D program, and progressive behaviour-based approach to flexible working. 

The opportunity to extend these learning experiences and opportunities to the Balance Internet team was a key consideration behind the acquisition, said Balance Internet Director of Client Success David Crothers. 

“Our synergies with Publicis, our complimentary services and crucially our cultural alignment, is what will allow us to accelerate and further broaden our capabilities. We are delighted to hear Publicis has been named an Employer of Choice this year,” said Crothers. 

“The award is testament to the positive working environment and experiences the Publicis Groupe creates for its people. They continue to demonstrate the importance of a culture where every employee and their experience matters. It’s such a good fit with our Balance ethos,” said Crothers.

The entire leadership at Balance Internet are extremely enthusiastic about extending the innovative and industry-leading opportunities to the team at Balance Internet, across all locations. 

Adobe, another close working partner of Balance Internet, was also named a winner in the Employee of Choice awards. “Again, we are thrilled to be working in partnership with organisations who are leading the way in what they provide for their people,” said Crothers.

Against a challenging climate, Publicis Groupe and Adobe have all stepped up to the plate for their people, the entire team at Balance Internet congratulate both organisations on the recognition the award brings, and their continued efforts towards new ways of working amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
