The St.LukesHealth people capability team has been recognised with the 2020 Employer of the Year at the Tasmanian Training Awards.
People capability manager Candida Davey accepted the award from the state's education minister, Jeremy Rockliffe.
The award means St.LukesHealth is a contender for the Australian Employer of the Year.
"St.LukesHealth is extremely honoured to be named the 2020 Employer of the Year in Tasmania," said the insurer in a statement.
"This award has been a culmination of a lot of hard work over the past 18 months. A couple of years ago, we embarked on an opportunity to develop and deliver a full qualification to staff across our organisation, working alongside our apprenticeship partner MEGT and delivered through TasTAFE who we are very grateful to have had on our team, special thanks to Damian Peirce, Melinda Shreeve and Brendan Holland."
It said the Certificate IV in General Insurance Qualification has been tailored to target those working in the health insurance industry.
"It has enabled a significant opportunity for us to upskill and build additional capabilities pivotal to the sector. It has enabled us to create an ambitious and proactive working environment for our employees that encourages forward-thinking, new ideas and partnerships.
"We are beyond excited by this honour and we look forward to helping other health funds in their commitment to qualification training for the next generation of leaders," it added.
