We’ve been recognised again as a great place to work

For more than 65 years we’ve been a stand-out performer in the private health insurance industry. As our members know, we deliver industry-leading customer service and competitive hospital and extras cover.

But today, we’re in the limelight for our industry-leading workplace culture and leadership. For the second year running, Defence Health has been recognised as a winner for Employer of Choice in the 2019 Australian Business Awards.

The Employer of Choice Awards celebrate organisations that maximise the potential of their workforce through practices that demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement, training and retention.

Defence Health CEO, Gerard Fogarty, said “receiving the award two years in a row is a great achievement.

“We know that our inclusive, engaged and vibrant culture delivers exceptional customer service and high performance. It is pleasing to see that what we do passionately for our members also translates to a rewarding and stimulating place to work.”

Employers of Choice stand out for their organisational culture and leadership; employee education, training and development; employee health, safety and satisfaction; performance management; and recognition and remuneration.

“I’m very proud to have our workplace culture recognised with this award,” said Gerard. “We’re a well-managed, high performing workplace. Our people have the opportunity to thrive and gain satisfaction from the work they do. We know that – but our award informs everyone else that Defence Health is a great place to work.”
