Group Managing Director Greg Budworth said the awards recognise Compass’ commitment to continuous improvement and innovative business processes.
He said to receive awards several years running is a credit to his highly skilled and professional team.
“We continue to evolve the way we deliver and manage housing to better meet the needs of tenants, community and funding bodies,” Mr Budworth said.
“And we strive to offer our team a challenging and rewarding place in which to work,” he said.
“We are all united by a vision where all people have appropriate and affordable shelter and are engaged in sustainable communities.”
In their sixteenth year, The Australian Business Awards are an annual program that recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of established business and product award categories.
The Awards’ Program Director Tara Johnston said that the pandemic has presented one of the most significant business challenges ever faced by organisations across Australia.
‘COVID-19 created a critical need for leading organisations to adapt to new working environments and adopt new approaches to innovation whilst navigating the technical and operational constraints imposed by lockdowns,” Ms Johnston said.
“As the world changes, these organisations have implemented new business tools, practices, and policies to facilitate productivity beyond the physical office, presenting unique opportunities for business transformation by rethinking their business strategies and processes,” she said.
The expertise of the Compass team is receiving other recognition. Compass is a three- time finalist in the upcoming Hunter Business Awards.
