TechnologyOne has been recognized as a WBA Leading Employer in the World Business Awards 2022. The key attributes of WBA Leading Employers outline the characteristics of well-managed, high-performing, industry leading organizations that provide a stimulating and supportive workplace.
TechnologyOne is one of the Australian software industry’s biggest success stories. Based in Brisbane, it has grown to be the nation’s largest enterprise software company and a top 150 ASX-listed company.
For more than 34 years, the company has supported its customers in Australia and around the globe with innovative enterprise software that incorporates new technologies as they emerge. This has allowed customers to focus on transforming their businesses rather than technology.
The company’s deeply integrated Software as a Service (SaaS) enterprise resource planning solution is used by 1,200 leading corporations, government agencies, local councils and universities, and is available on any device, anywhere and anytime.
TechnologyOne has a vigorous ‘can do’ culture, which delivers innovation through collaboration. The company’s dedication to success through teamwork links diverse teams around the globe around shared goals. Every day more than 1,200 talented and dynamic people share expertise and ideas that enable them to develop leading- edge technology-based solutions for TechnologyOne’s customers.
The company provides an environment in which talented people can innovate, create and realise their full potential. It sees its people as a vital source of competitive advantage and proactively invests in recruiting, developing and retaining individuals and teams.
TechnologyOne has comprehensive organisational and stream-specific programs to onboard and develop leaders and team members. These programs encourage team members to take ownership of their own learning and career development.
The company also has an achievement culture that recognises exceptional individuals and teams. Many systems and strategies support this culture, including:
• An annual Achievement Plan Cycle, which sees employees set clear goals to work towards
• A Career Framework that helps team members understand the capabilities needed for each role
• Talent and succession planning
• Service recognition awards
• The annual Merit, Achievement, Recognition, Values, Excellence and Leadership (MARVEL) Awards, which reward exceptional performance.
Innovation is encouraged through initiatives such as regular company-wide Hack Days – collaborative events that break down traditional silos and enable team members to work on projects outside their day-to-day work.
A highlight in 2021 was the company’s inaugural two-day Company Kick Off (CKO) event. This was designed to align team members behind TechnologyOne’s strategy for the future after an extended period of lockdowns and remote working.
A key feature of the company culture is a shared commitment to giving back to the communities it operates in through the TechnologyOne Foundation.
At the heart of the Foundation’s good work is its pledge to donate 1 per cent of the company’s time, products and profits to local and international charities that share its mission of helping disadvantaged young people create their own pathways to success. As part of this initiative, employees are given 2.5 days a year to volunteer at charitable organisations during work hours. The company also dollar matches employees’ donations and fundraising efforts.
TechnologyOne runs Employee Net Promoter Score surveys every six months to better enable it to understand how the company can continually improve and remain a great place to work.
