Innovative HR Teams List
In 2018 MSS Security’s People & Culture (P&C) team was named an Innovative HR Team by HRD magazine for the second time.
The new MSS Security Recognition and Reward program, a key pillar of the 2020 People and Culture Plan, was the initiative that won P&C a place on the 2018 list, which shines a spotlight on the organisations leading the way in innovating and setting new benchmarks for the Australian human resources industry.
The judges noted: “Reward and recognition is a central part of MSS Security’s 2020 P&C plan and is critical to the company reaching its attraction and engagement goals and performance and L&D targets. The recent introduction of a dedicated R&R page on the relaunched MSS Security website allows anyone who has had a positive experience with an MSS Security employee to nominate that person online.”
The P&C team was also one of only 30 to make HR Directors (HRD) magazine’s inaugural list of Innovative HR Teams in March 2016.
What set the P&C team apart from others was that it “likes to challenge the status quo, stir the pot and make managers a little uncomfortable, and ask ‘why'” said HRD.
Unlike many human resources professionals, the P&C team must also measure its performance and successes against a set of KPIs related to the MSS Security financial success.
As a result, “the company recognises that every decision made by HR will impact on the business this quarter, this financial year, and so on” said HRD. “In HRD’s book, that equates to an innovative view of HR and its potential.”
