At the GPTW Awards night in August 2018, it was revealed that i2C placed 19th in the Best Places to Work in Australia Study 2018 (of firms less than 100 employees).
i2C is also the only architecture and design firm in the top 50 companies across all categories. The results were published in today’s Australian Financial Review, with this outcome being a true testament to the efforts of our entire team.
A further achievement was maintaining a position in the top 20 at a time when many companies are really starting to focus on their workplace culture. Great Place to Work also had a much larger pool of potential companies vying for the top spot in this year’s competition. i2C is consistently amongst Australia’s best places to work and have participated every year since 2010 – top 20 over the last 4!
i2C’s Managing Directors, Brian Jende and Anthony Merlin, refer back to their tight-knit team as the constant fundamental driving force behind i2C’s special workplace culture.
“We are continually inspired by the passion and camaraderie amongst our team. Our whole team embody our core values and it’s their daily contribution that makes coming to work more than just a job” – Anthony
Great Place to Work Background

i2C’s results from 2014 to 2018
This years results reflect that 90 per cent of the team say that i2C is a great place to work. “We are proud of this result but our goal is to continually raise the bar and see just how great we can become” – Anthony.
Finally, a huge thank you to the entire i2C team – it is you that make this company the fantastic place that it is today. Without the group of people that we do have, results like this just wouldn’t be possible. While the number in this survey means a great deal, the true driving force is knowing that we can confidently provide and be willing to improve a business with an open mind. With everyone looking forward to 2019 at i2C, we just can’t wait to see what is achieved!
