Korowa Anglican Girls' School named Employer of Choice
By: The Educator
"The year was always going to be tough for Australian schools," says The Educator team. "Yet amid all of this, many schools have managed to create positive working environments that support staff and students evidenced by low rates of turnover and high rates of tenure and employee engagement. From a flood of submissions for its 2021 5-Star Awards for Employers of Choice, The Educator handpicked 25 schools that have gone above and beyond to support staff through an especially trying time. This support translated into hard data: among the winners – spanning public, independent and Catholic schools – the average rate of tenure was eight years, and turnover was around 6%."
Korowa Anglican Girls' School is a welcoming, caring and supportive community that provides its people with quality facilities and opportunities to further their professional development. The diverse and inclusive workplace provides staff with opportunities to continually develop and upskill in their roles. Korowa equips its people with the resources they need to perform their roles and collaborate with others. Work-life balance and the health and wellbeing of employees are also top of mind at Korowa. Korowa's new mental health strategy ensures that all staff are well supported in the workplace.
"At Korowa, we recognise the importance of supporting our staff and building a culture of continuous learning and improvement to ensure they can continue to deliver outstanding education programs to our students," says principal Helen Carmody. "To be selected for The Educator's Employer of Choice 2021 list is an outstanding achievement, and I could not be prouder of the team."
