THE CARLTON Football Club is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as a Winner for Employer of Choice at the Australian Business Awards 2021.

This significant achievement sees the Club accomplish yet another one of its key targets outlined in its five-year strategic plan, The Carlton Way.

The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice recognises organisations that develop workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through established policies and practices, which demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention. 

The Club’s submission focussed on five pillars which contribute to organisational excellence.

These pillars are:

  • Organisational composition and profile
  • Culture, leadership and strategy
  • Education, training and development
  • Performance, recognition and remuneration
  • Health, safety and satisfaction

Carlton President Luke Sayers acknowledged the significance for the Club in receiving such a highly regarded recognition.

“To be recognised as an Employer Of Choice is another testament to the amount of hard work that is put in by everyone associated with our great club,” Sayers said.

“As an organisation, we are incredibly proud of our people and the environment we all continue to harness – this award certainly recognises that. 

“Carlton Football Club is a united, collaborative and high-performing environment that fosters a sense of connection, with a strong focus on inclusion, belonging and personal wellbeing to ensure all of our people are supported in playing their role in contributing to the Club’s success.

“Congratulations to all of our people on this significant achievement and we look forward to continuing to make this club one that every Carlton person is proud to be a part of.”
