Nous’ unique culture places us in the top five workplaces in Australia


Nous Group has been voted one of Australia’s top five workplaces in the 2015 BRW Best Places to Work Awards. We are excited and encouraged by this recognition, which comes on the back of our 14th place in 2013.

Nous continues to grow in size and influence. Since the 2013 awards, we have opened offices in London and have grown to 180 employees. Maintaining a unique culture through periods of substantial and diverse growth presents a particular challenge. We view this recognition as a sign that we continue to be on the right path; one that started in 1999 with a focus on positive influence.

This award follows our clients voting us ‘Best management consulting firm, Australia’, in the 2015 Australian Financial Review Client Choice Awards. “This recognition of Nous as a great place to work – by the people who work here – is as significant as the recognition expressed by our clients in the AFR Awards. Our culture is the foundation from which we strive to deliver business and societal benefits through our work: what we call positive influence,” says Tim Orton, founder and managing director.

The feedback we have received through the Best Places to Work survey shows that we are an organisation that our employees believe values and demonstrates:

  • Credibility: our integrity and ethical behaviour
  • Camaraderie: a strong sense of team and an acceptance to be ourselves
  • Pride: our team and individual accomplishments are acknowledged.

Our capacity to grow and continue to deliver outstanding business results for our clients is founded upon our capacity to attract and retain the best and brightest candidates. A strong and distinctive culture is central to this.

We are gratified by this acknowledgement and welcome the challenge of continuing to grow our culture to support our goal of delivering outstanding results for our clients as Australia’s most influential, and increasingly international, management consulting and leadership development firm.
