Sitback Solutions named ‘Best Place To Work’ for third year in a row

Sitback Solutions has again placed in the Top 25 of the Best Places to Work under 100 employees study, this year achieving #20, making it the only Drupal/UX Agency to achieve this in the 10 year history of the awards.

The Best Places to Work study is widely acclaimed in Australia. Based on one of the world’s most comprehensive studies of workplace culture by Great Place to Work Australia, the quality of this year’s study was higher than ever. The success of Sitback Solutions is a testament to the willpower and innovation on the senior management team and the company’s ability to retain a happy, engaged, loyal and high performing workforce during challenging times. To achieve this consecutively for three years only stands to bolster Sitback’s objective to be an employer of choice.

“This is an exciting, transformative and competitive time for companies,” said Zrinka Lovrencic, MD of Great Place to Work Australia. “With a services sector heavy economy, employers now need to make a greater effort to improve their workplace cultures in order to retain employees. This competitive pressure benefits everyone, as all workplaces can increase their levels of
employee engagement. The companies that have made the 2017 study have risen to this challenge and exemplify workplace culture excellence.”


Sitback look to their five core values to help to shape everything they do, including being provider of choice for their broad range of clients including such household brands as Woolworths, Westpac, Luna Park and The University of Sydney. Focusing on the customer to ensure excellence of execution, nurturing knowledge and learning to achieve continuous innovation, and building a workforce who thrive on teamwork have all helped to create a culture within the business that is comfortable, inclusive and rewarding.

The results of the GPTW Study found that over 97% of the team felt that people are treated fairly regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, sex or sexual orientation. 97% agreed that Sitback is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work and 97% of people look forward to coming to work.

“Our team truly is our greatest asset. Each and every member of our 40-strong family is passionate about what they do and brings their own experience and expertise to the table,” said Chris McHugh, CEO of Sitback, “It’s this combination – across our whole service offering – that puts our clients at ease; knowing that they have the best minds in the industry supporting them. It makes me incredibly proud to see this hard work and determination being recognised outside of our business. Even more so now that we’ve placed within the Top 25 for three years running!”
