Gladstone business listed as one of best places to work

THE faces of Jeff Kolka's staff run through his mind when he counts how many people work for the Gladstone health services company Kinnect, and the employees are happy to be there.

Kinnect was the only Queensland employer listed in the Business Review Weekly's Best Places to Work Study with 100 employees or less.

The supplier of pre-employment medicals, occupations rehab and workplace health assessments to Curtis Island and other locations throughout Queensland and Gladstone debuted on the list at 18.

Central Queensland manager Jeff Kolka said they were happy with the position after nominating themselves.

"They then spoke to everyone in the company for their opinion. It's good they like working here," he said.

"We like to employ good professionals, physios, exercise physiotherapists and administration staff who give us feedback and opinions.

"We take (their opinions) on board and value their role in the company."

He said they would use the recognition as a good workplace to attract more people to the region.

"We struggle to attract to the region and right now we have a pretty good crew," he said.

"We want high-quality professional people wanting to work for a good company and hopefully this attracts a few more."
