Large Employer of the Year eligibility and selection criteria
The Large Employer of the Year Award recognises a large enterprise which has achieved excellence in the provision of ‘nationally recognised training’ to its employees.
‘Nationally recognised training’ refers to training that is based on a national training package or accredited course which results in a person receiving a formal qualification or Statement of Attainment issued by a Registered Training Organisation. This includes Australian Apprenticeships.

An organisation with 20 or more, but less than 200 employees in NSW (including full-time, part-time and casual equivalents) will be considered a medium employer. Organisations with less than 20 employees in NSW (including full-time, part-time and casual equivalents) can apply for the direct entry award category for Small Employer of the Year.
