Afea goes back to back in AFR BOSS Best Places to Work | Afea Care Services
April 27th 2022

For the second consecutive year, Afea Care Services has been recognised as one of Australia and New Zealand’s Best Places to Work.

The prestigious annual list, published by The Australian Financial Review BOSS Magazine, is based on a rigorous assessment process by Inventium, which identifies ten key factors that are critical to employees feeling motivated and engaged at work.

We are honoured to rank third on the Health list, from over 750 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand.

Afea was delighted to be recognised for our achievements and practices around compassionate leadership, diversity and inclusion, and health and wellbeing support.

“Raw and real”: special kudos for Heart to Heart initiative

We received special kudos for our unique “Heart to Heart” initiative that was launched in 2021, which sees every new employee participate in a personal induction with Afea founder, Esha Oberoi.

“Beyond the many perks we offer employees to support their wellbeing, a great team culture starts with a sense of belonging – and that’s what the Heart to Heart achieves,” Joseph Assad, Afea’s Head of People, Culture & Quality, said.    

Midori Sugiyama, Quality & Risk Officer, started at Afea in November 2021 and said the induction helped her deeper understand the company’s purpose and vision.

“The induction was so raw and real. When Esha shared her incredibly personal story, I felt a stronger connection to Afea. To this day, I love working here,” she said.

What makes “a brilliant workplace”

The judging criteria is equally weighted by responses from a staff survey and a written submission, with questions relating to policies, practices and programs that exist within our organisation to support and get the best out of our employees.

“We have undertaken extensive research into what truly makes a brilliant workplace and we are thrilled to recognise many organisations who are leading the way with innovative practices that drive key elements such as flexibility, wellbeing and equality,” said  Dr Amantha Imber, Founder, Inventium.

Afea extends our warm congratulations to the other four finalists on the Health list: The Arriba Group, MedHealth, CSL and Aspen Medical.
