In 2016, Stornoway was recognised with a prestigious Employer of Choice Award from the Tasmanian Department of State Growth. The Awards recognise businesses that demonstrate contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support of their staff.
The judges selected Stornoway as the winner because of the company's visionary leadership, mutual respect and connection, focus on skills development, and high levels of employee engagement.
'Stornoway is a family business that has always put people first. The judges found an egalitarian culture with visionary leaders who understand the need for ongoing business development and striving to do better when it comes to supporting their staff. A key element is management spending time in the field, listening to staff in their space.'- Judges comments, 2016 Employer of Choice Awards
