Keep technology human
This accolade is a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to fostering a positive and thriving work environment for its employees.
The Best Place to Work award is based on a comprehensive employee satisfaction survey, which revealed an impressive 95 per cent of Interactive’s team members wholeheartedly recommend the company as an outstanding place to work. This resounding endorsement highlights the exceptional workplace culture that Interactive has nurtured, making it a preferred choice for top talent in the technology industry.
One of the driving factors behind this award is Interactive’s dedication to providing outstanding career opportunities for its employees. Last year, 25 per cent of the team took on new roles within the organisation, demonstrating the strong focus on career growth and professional development.
“Our purpose – keep technology human – is the guiding principle that ensures we put people at the centre of everything we do,” said Brendan Fleiter, Executive Chairman at Interactive. “Technology is a fast-moving sector, and so we recognise that our people need careers that match the rapid pace of change in the industry.”
A standout feature of Interactive’s employee growth program is its cutting-edge Ninja Academies – in-house training academies catering to critical areas of technology and aligning with the company’s strategic growth priorities. The academies offer world-class content, technology certifications, social learning and practical on-the-job applications to empower employees with the skills needed to excel in their roles.
“We strive to go beyond the racks, the machines and the data. While we are built on a foundation of technical expertise, we are made great by our peoples’ innovative thinking and passion,” said Brendan.
Through Interactive’s overarching ESG program, “Blueprint for Better” (B4B) initiative, the company is creating a positive impact on society and the environment. Interactive recognises its responsibility to leverage technology to improve our communities and the environment. To this end, Interactive has taken significant steps to reduce its carbon footprint, committing to sourcing 100 per cent of the electricity needed to deliver its services from renewable sources by 2030.
As part of the B4B initiative, Interactive has also launched the Pathways program, which creates entry points to the technology industry for underrepresented groups. The program currently focuses on an initiative for mid-career women transitioning into the technology sector, empowering them to thrive in the dynamic field.
“Our people are our powerhouse, and this recognition as one of Australia’s Best Places to Work belongs to them. It represents the passion, drive and care that they show our customers every day,” said Merylee Crockett, Chief People Officer at Interactive. “We are committed to providing the best tech career opportunities and challenging ourselves to keep making a positive impact to our people, communities and the environment.”
