Cordelta, a Canberra based professional services and consulting firm has cracked the top 10 of the BRW Great Places to Work list from 11th in 2011 to 7th in 2012. Cordelta is the only Canberra-based company to make the top 50.
Sponsored by BRW and the Great Place to Work Institute, the annual study gauges employees trust, pride and camaraderie within their workplace, as well as management’s response to a “culture audit” measuring credibility, trustworthiness, respect and fairness, among others.
Cordelta’s Managing Director and co-founder Ken Gutterson discussed what makes Cordelta a great place to work.
“It’s about giving people opportunity, giving them some freedom in how they do their work and not putting too many rules around what they do. If you can set the right environment, people will be successful.”
The move into the top 10 comes after a particularly strong year for Cordelta. Cordelta also took home the Canberra Business Council 2011 Business Achievement Award.
The announcement came on a busy day for Cordelta and its employees. Cordelta was a sponsor of the Australia’s Health 2012 Conference. Managing Director Ken Gutterson participated in the Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout for homelessness awareness.
