“This is a tremendous acknowledgement. It’s extremely gratifying for our organisation to be regarded as one of the best employers in Australia. At PACCAR Australia, we strive for quality in the products and services we provide and in order to achieve this, you need excellent people.

Now in its eighth year, The Australian Business Awards is a highly regarded national program with an established set of business and product award categories assessing the core values of business excellence, product excellence, sustainability and responsibility. The program engages with leading corporate, government and non-government organisations across key industry segments, including financial, manufacturing, professional services, energy, telecommunications, construction, transport, healthcare, education, food services and retail. Winners of the program are publicly honoured for their industry-leading initiatives and products.

Ms Tara Johnston, Program Director, says, “PACCAR Australia is a worthy recipient and has demonstrated a commitment to excellence that stands out amongst a dynamic field of Australia’s elite.

“The Australian Business Awards recognise our most innovative organisations, their outstanding achievements and contribution to the Australian economy. The awards raise the bar across all aspects of quality management and provide organisations with ways to review their business and product performance, as well as identify their core strengths,” Ms Johnston adds.

“An Australian Business Award solidifies PACCAR Australia’s place as a leader alongside our best in business. As well as achieving outstanding outcomes, the honourees have enhanced the reputation of their professions and have demonstrated their best endeavours across business, industry and the community. Australia’s modernised economy is providing a stable platform for a wide spectrum of sectors to increase their competitiveness through concerted ICT (Information & Communications Technology) development, manufacturing innovation, a dynamic services sector, a growing knowledge economy and a world class primary sector.”
