Lion named one of Australia's sought after employers
21 June 2016: - Lion is proud to be named one of the most sought after employers in Australia by LinkedIn.
LinkedIn’s 2016 Top Attractors List ranks Australia’s best 25 companies for attracting and retaining top talent. Lion ranked 8th and was the only food and beverage company in Australia to make the list.
The rankings are compiled using data from LinkedIn’s 433 million-plus membership base, and focus on three key factors: job applications, follower engagement and new hire staying power.
Of the top Australian companies named, flexibility was a consistent theme. LinkedIn gave special mention of Lion’s flexible working practices, volunteering policy and high levels of people engagement.
Lion People & Culture Director, Beer, Spirits and Wine Australia, Alicia Purtell, said: “Lion’s culture is defined by our commitment to building trust – both through our market-leading brands and through our people, who work with our all stakeholders, from our customers and suppliers to the broader community, to grow our business sustainably.
“Our people proposition sums it up best – we want people to be empowered to be the best they can be, really make a difference and have a great time doing it. That’s the kind of culture our people tell us they want to work in and it’s the kind of culture, in our experience, that delivers the best results.”
