Mirvac Named in Top 50 Best Workplaces for Innovation

31st July 2020

We are delighted to share that Fast Company has named Mirvac within the top 50 of the 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators in 2020, alongside only one other Australian company.

The list honours businesses and organisations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.

At Mirvac we have focused on embedding innovation capability and culture across our entire organisation for many years, and it’s terrific to be recognised on the global stage. This achievement is testament to our teams’ commitment to fostering a ‘safe to fail’ culture, applying our Hatch innovation process, encouraging diversity of thought, and intentionally embracing new perspectives to deliver meaningful value to our people and customers.

On top of the various initiatives, including our Hatch program and Mirvac Ventures, that contributed to our ranking, there was also a special shout out from the judges for our Rent-to-Buy initiative, which was born out of our Residential team in Perth.

Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2020 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. The Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored nearly 900 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies—an increase from last year’s list of 50. The 2020 awards feature workplaces from around the world with several of the honourees based outside the U.S.

“As much of the world recovers from health, economic, and social crises, we need innovation more than ever,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “This new list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators celebrates organizations that have fostered innovative thinking by investing in technology, research and development, and their employees.”
