Ignia has continued its winning ways, placing sixth in the BRW Best Places to Work in Australia list, just days after the Perth based company scooped up two awards at the Microsoft Australian Partner Awards.

The win came in the under 100 staff category, and sees Ignia jumping two places up from last year's result.

David Tenni, Ignia director says placing on the Best Places to Work list for the second year in a row – and moving up two places – is ‘a huge honour'.

“I couldn't be prouder of our exceptional team,” Tenni says.

Tenni has doubled in size in the past 12 months and opened offices in Sydney and Melbourne.

“Maintaining the same family-friendly culture whilst growing rapidly across a region as large as Australia has been challenging, but we see this as a critical ingredient to our continued success,” Tenni says.

Zrinka Lovrencic, Great Place to Work Australia managing director, says this is an ‘exciting, transformative and competitive time' for companies.

“With a services sector heavy economy, employers now need to make a greater effort to improve their workplace cultures in order to retain employees,” Lovrencic says.

“This competitive pressure benefits everyone, as all workplaces can increase their levels of employee engagement.

“The companies that have made the 2015 study have risen to this challenge and exemplify workplace culture excellence,” Lovrencic says.

Last week Ignia took out an Excellence in Industry and Platform Innovation award for a mining solution at the Microsoft Australia Partner Awards. The company also took home the award for Excellence in Mobility and Devices.

Last month Ignia was also recognised by Sitecore as a Gold Certified Implementation Partner, based on Ignia's ‘outstanding' customer projects over the past 12 months.

Distribution Central has also been named on the BRW Best Places to Work in Australia list this year, garnering number 14 on the list.
