Western Australian provider Pachamama wins Telstra Australian Business award
Pachamama has been named the national Small and Succeeding Award winner at the 2018 Australian Business awards, held in Melbourne on 20 September 2018.
Telstra CEO Andy Penn said Pachamama is a business which is doing great things, choosing innovation first, and not being afraid to take risks.
Pachamama, which has two centres in the Perth Hills, uses art and nature to encourage children to be innovative, and embrace creativity. Through the engagement of local artists, Pachamama creates unique play spaces, which inspire imaginative play.
Since the opening of the first centre in 2012, the Pachamama philosophy and programs have been embraced, not only by the local community, but also through social media, with the small business having more than 50,000 followers on Facebook.
Mr Penn said Pachamama impressed the judges with their clear vision and business strategy, highlighting their ‘laser-like’ focus on the customer, dedication to providing a nurturing environment for their people, and contributing to an outstanding workplace culture.
