Small Employer of the Year

Sponsored by Chamber of Commerce NT.

Winner: DAC Enterprises Pty Ltd

DAC Enterprises is a civil engineering and construction services business serving the Top End for more than 25 years. This privately owned company also operates transport, haulage, quarry, drainage, demolition and dismantling divisions giving it truly unique expertise and a highly customer driven reputation.

At present, 11 staff are studying various certificate courses to maintain due diligence, increase their skill capacity and support business goals. Managing Director, Douglas Taylor is leading by example and also undertaking a Business Mastery Course to ensure his own skills and expertise meet current standards and are of benefit to the organisation.

The practical business outcomes of staff training are obvious with a 10% reduction in onsite incidents and accidents and a consistency of high standard work and delivery of projects on time and on budget. High staff confidence, workplace efficiency and job satisfaction due to training programs has also benefitted the stability and positive outlook of staff and ensured a strong future for the business.

Instead of a Human Resources department, DAC has a People and Culture department that addresses the company’s recruitment and training programs. The department’s focus is on offering diverse career pathways and ongoing workplace satisfaction and performance. Staff awards, a training and skills development resource library and regular one‑on‑one performance assessments are just a few of the ways DAC Enterprises strive to assist staff in reaching company and personal career development goals.
