Aurion is thrilled to have won a place on Human Resources Director Australia’s Employer of Choice list for 2021. We joined leading enterprises like Adobe, Data#3, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and McDonald’s as only a handful of winners to have made the cut from a large field of entrants.

We were judged on our initiatives and achievements across key areas, such as communication, diversity and inclusion, access to technology, leadership, and health and wellbeing. The judges singled out the way Aurion successful managed the pandemic’s complete disruption of business as usual and continued to put our team members first.

Payroll in the spotlight
Aurion’s business is changing. Payroll and HR services represent the fundamental contract between employer and employee, and no one wants to get it wrong. But in Australia, the incorrect application of awards has led to a billion-dollar tsunami of wage and superannuation underpayments, and a growing source of financial and reputational risk.

Meanwhile, digitisation and automation has fundamentally changed payroll processing and is driving a shift in payroll professionals’ focus from process-driven administration to data analysis and expertise in Industrial and Employee Relations.

Aurion’s team members have an increasingly important role to play for their customer community of businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies, who trust Aurion to navigate these changes for them.

Your career journey
Our EGM Kathryn Wilson sums up Aurion’s appeal: “We’re great but we want to be better. The next few years will be an exciting time to be at Aurion. We have a strong vision for the future and the support of a loyal customer community and our global parent company. We now need more of the right talent to join us and make their mark on a thriving, tech-driven business where people come first.”

Our average employee tenure is over seven years, with several people being with Aurion for more than 20 years. Coupled with this impressive tenure, we also have many great examples of people progressing their careers at Aurion.

Joy Richardson is the General Manager of Client Engagement at Aurion. She has worked her way up to her fifth managerial role with Aurion in Quality Assurance over eight years.

Cara Haslop, our General Manager of People and Culture, has been supported to take two breaks for parental leave during her 10 years with Aurion, as well as to work primarily from her home office. She has continued to grow her career and joined the Aurion Leadership Team a few years ago.

Greg Crerar is a Program Manager at Aurion, and he had the opportunity to join the Aurion ‘Ignite’ Emerging Leaders Program, where he was mentored by CMG Chief People Officer, Mark Graham. Greg commented: “Our mentoring sessions were not focused on business or career but more focused on self-reflection and improvement strategies. It was fun and challenging and he made it feel really comfortable and took the time to listen and share.”
