Community Based Support was formally recognised as an Employer of Choice in 2017.  The judges remarked:

Community Based Support were highly commended in the awards in 2014.  Since then, the organisation has transformed its support for staff by embracing technology and integrating a new business model for community directed care.  Performance indicators for the Board and CEO focus on staff first and this support from the top has resulted in highly engaged and committed staff that have immense pride in their work.  Many of the employees are field based and isolated.  Technology and support systems enable them to stay connected, safe and informed.  As a result, staff say they are able to provide higher quality care.  Training is delivered in ways that suit staff, career progression and alternative roles are supported through coaching and mentoring.  Continuous improvement is really lived in this organisation and passion for the work is evident at all levels.
