Gilead recognised as Best Employer despite shift in talent landscape

Human Resources: Gilead Sciences Australia has been recognised as a Best Employer Australia 2022 by Kincentric, achieving scores in the top quartile across three critical assessment components.

The talent landscape has shifted, and employee expectations have changed vastly in the past two years. In fact, a recent Microsoft survey of over 30,000 employees in several markets revealed that 41% of employees are considering leaving their current employer and 46% said they are likely to move because they can now work remotely.

Rethinking employee experience to compete for the best and most diverse talent is critical.

Jaime McCoy, General Manager Gilead Sciences Australia, said “As Gilead ANZ continues to grow and evolve, our listening strategy has enabled us to stay connected with staff, talk candidly about what’s working, discuss ideas for continuous improvement, and align our people initiatives with what staff tell us matters most.”

“This feedback has led to several programs being implemented over the last 18 months to enhance the employee experience including fostering a speak up culture, optimising organisational mental health and wellbeing, a flexible work model, bespoke leadership development program for all people managers and implementing an employee centric onboarding experience. The key to our success has been our ongoing focus on inclusion for all which is reflected in our AWEI Silver status.”

Gilead has regenerated its approach to engagement, leadership and talent practices to meet the evolving needs of its employees in today’s everchanging, complex, hybrid environment. The result which has seen the company particularly excel in the critical people factors are measured as part of the Kincentric Best Employers assessment.

As the first company in 2022 to be identified as Best Employer by Kincentric in Australia, Ms McCoy said “We are absolutely delighted to have Gilead Sciences Australia recognised as a Best Employer. Each day, our employees work to create possible for the doctors and patients we serve. At the heart of that and in delivering on our mission to create a better, healthier world, is an inclusive and diverse workforce. We’re extremely proud of the environment and culture we’ve created, where our employees are inspired, connected and supported to realise their goals and ambitions, all while feeling free and safe to bring their true self to work.”

Stephen Hickey, Kincentric’s APAC Region Lead, said “Kincentric Best Employer identifies organisations that demonstrate excellence in the workplace, by creating differentiated employee experiences and agile and inclusive cultures that lead to stronger, more sustainable business results.

“Extraordinary organisations like Gilead Sciences Australia, stand above the rest because they accelerate outcomes through high employee engagement, engaging leadership, talent focus and strong organisational agility. We congratulate Gilead on achieving this recognition,” he added.
