Telstra Incorporated Earns Great Place to Work Certification

Telstra Incorporated, the U.S.-based entity of Telstra, was recently certified as a Great Place to Work® in recognition of its ongoing efforts to create an extraordinary employee experience. 

As a result of a company-wide survey, 94 percent of employees said Telstra is a great place to work, compared to just 57 percent of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. This honor highlights Telstra’s demonstrated track record of consistently fostering a supportive and fully inclusive work environment for all employees, with a focus on workplace culture, collaboration, empowerment, and career development and mentorship.

To earn the prestigious certification, Telstra employees were asked to take a confidential survey administered by Great Place to Work and focused on how they view their workplace, including questions about diversity and inclusion, management, work/life balance, and professional development. Highlights from the survey include:

  • Nearly 100 percent of employees believe people are treated fairly, regardless of their sexual orientation, race, age, or gender
  • 99 percent of employees believe management trusts people to do a good job without watching over their shoulders
  • 97 percent of employees feel they are encouraged to balance their work life and their personal life
  • 96 percent of employees believe management is approachable and easy to talk with
  • 96 percent of employees are proud to tell others they work at Telstra
  • 96 percent of employees feel good about the ways Telstra contributes to the community
  • 95 percent of employees feel they are offered adequate training or development to further themselves professionally

Additionally, according to research from Great Place to Work, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Great Place to Work certified workplace. Employees at certified workplaces are also 93 percent more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.

In addition to providing valuable perspectives on the employee experience, Great Place to Work certification has been shown to help job seekers identify which companies genuinely offer a great company culture. Certification also gives employers a recruiting advantage by providing a globally recognized and research-backed verification of a great employee experience.
