MCEC’s employment culture recognised on a global level
The accolade follows the venue’s accreditation as an Employer of Choice in the Australian Business Awards in August, when it was recognised for demonstrating the accreditation’s core values of business innovation, technological achievement, employee engagement and business sustainability.
MCEC’s chief executive Peter King believes it is one of the best accolades the business has ever received.
“It is wonderful to be recognised on the world stage as not only a leading employer in the industry but as one of the top employers worldwide,” he said.
“Our people are truly the heart of our business and are wholly responsible for MCEC’s enviable reputation in the business events industry. “We have been on this journey for some time now, and it is wonderful to see that the processes we have put in place are empowering our employees to achieve, both at MCEC and in their future endeavours.”
MCEC’s director of people and culture, Helen Fairclough, says they are “committed to providing an environment where employees can reach their potential “.
“[We] have put a lot of steps in place to ensure our people have the support they need to develop meaningful careers with MCEC,” she said. “However, we will not rest on our laurels, we are continuing to invest in our employees and have recently launched a range of new initiatives, including a robust leadership framework to help develop leaders at all levels within our business, and a High Potential process which includes a mentoring program to expand our employees’ professional networks.”
