Employees sing their praises: Atarix triumphs as best tech company in Micro Category


Atarix Ranked Number #4 in the 2021 Australia’s Best Workplaces™  List, Micro Category by Great Place to Work® 

Sydney, NSW, 4th  August 2021: “We celebrate people who try new and better ways of doing things, regardless of the outcome” is just one reason employees love working at Atarix.  

Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and leadership behaviours, determines the Best Workplaces™ in Australia based on 30 years of data science and millions of employee surveys. At its core, a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues. 

Ranking #4 on this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Australia, Micro Category, is an impressive achievement to come by, one that Atarix has accomplished with some remarkable stats that exceeded benchmarks when compared against other Best Workplaces™ in the Small Category: 

  • 100% of employees say they experience impartiality (treated equally) at Atarix vs. 88% benchmark  
  • 100% of Atarix employees saw management as credible (believable, trustworthy) vs. 93% benchmark 
  • 100% of Atarix employees found management to have integrity (which aligns to one of Atarix’ core values) vs. 94% benchmark  
  • 100% of Atarix employees believe management practices and policies are fair vs. 92% benchmark  
  • 100% of Atarix employees feel supported vs. 93% benchmark  
  • 100% of employees found collaboration (and problem-solving together) easy at Atarix vs. 91% benchmark – no mean feat considering the exceptional circumstances over the last year with Covid and remote working. 


Samantha Huddle, General Manager of Great Place to Work® in Australia and New Zealand, said, “Australia’s best workplaces have truly risen to the challenges of 2021. In an unprecedented year, the companies on our Australia Best Workplaces™List for 2021 have excelled by putting their people first. It is an honour for Atarix to be recognised by their employees as an organisation that fosters respect, trust and fairness.” 

This exceptionally high bar that Atarix has set is demonstrated in a quote taken from one of their employees: 


“Well, I can tell you that it feels great. Really great. Not to sound cheesy or cliched, but working at Atarix, I honestly do look forward to work when I wake up. Most people I meet are constantly looking for their dream job, but I can tell you that I’ve already found mine.”

Founders Tony Tran and Roger Kari were delighted with the results, with Tony stating:

“Being ranked #4 for Best Workplace in Australia in the Micro Category means so much to us, as it validates our decision to build an awesome tech company based on really great people and we wouldn’t have achieved this without the buy in and contribution from all of our team members. It also sets a challenge for us to continually improve on this achievement and continually build Atarix to be a GPTW for years to come.”
