Interestingly, ABC has always performed strongly in our best employer survey, having secured a place in the top 10 every year since the inaugural Randstad Awards ceremony three years ago, and 2014 is the second consecutive year in a row that ABC took out the top honour. ABC ranked high for employer preference with women and with the 25-64 age demographics; and was awarded for its excellence in providing a great work-life balance, strong workplace culture and good learning and development opportunities.
