PEOPLE AND PASSION
We are inclusive, acting with consistency and respecting the opinions of others. We encourage, care for and motivate each other. We have fun and work with passion.
In our 2016 Sustainability Report we stated our aim to improve our diversity performance. Since then we made diversity a part of our business performance framework that helps determine management and staff incentives.
We increased our diversity work plan to maintain momentum with diversity initiatives. Our management team is now one-third female.
We have joined Diversity Works New Zealand, and completely redesigned our IT and workplace flexibility opportunities to ensure greater flexibility in how we work. We have surveyed employees about their experience of workplace flexibility and family-friendliness and will work through that feedback over 2017.
How we could do better – 2016
We could understand more about the barriers to greater diversity and support more gender and cultural diversity in the company.
How we could do better – 2017
We intend to increase our support for diversity in our industry, in collaboration with our industry organisation, Pepanz. We can understand more about diverse recruitment into our industry and into our business.
