For the fourth year running, VTNZ has been named as a finalist in the Enterprise category of the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Awards. The results are based on New Zealand’s largest and longest running study of workplace climate and employee engagement. VTNZ won both the Enterprise award and Overall award in 2014 and again took out the Enterprise award in 2015. This year, VTNZ hopes to retain its title as one of New Zealand’s best workplaces.
The Best Workplaces survey identifies the best places to work in New Zealand, as rated by employees. Over 58,000 employees from 210 organisations, across both private and public sectors, participated in the survey in 2016. They provided their perceptions of their workplace on areas such as leadership, development opportunities, involvement, recognition and more.
This year, 50 organisations have reached finalist status across five categories; Small, Small-Medium, Medium-Large, Large and Enterprise.
“Our annual engagement results are our window into how things are going for our team members. Throughout our engagement journey we have focused on the factors that matter to our people. Engagement has enabled us to change our business for the better and I am very proud to have been a part of those changes and lead such a GREAT national team,” says Mike Walsh, CEO VTNZ.
“Achieving finalist status in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Programme is one of the most reliable indicators of a great workplace because it’s based on the voice of the employee,” says Emma Martin, Senior Consultant, IBM Kenexa New Zealand. “It’s an accolade that clearly distinguishes New Zealand’s top ‘employers of choice’.”
The winners of the 2016 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Awards will be announced at a black tie dinner in Auckland on 3 November 2016.
The programme is proudly supported by AUT Faculty of Business, Economics and Law, the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) and Kiwibank.
