SUB60 wins Employer of Choice award.
Talking the talk is one thing but walking the walk is what counts, and SUB60’s efforts in rewarding, progressing, enabling and communicating with our team has seen us crowned Employer of Choice.
The award, dished out at the 2021 Human Resources Director New Zealand awards, acknowledged and applauded our inclusivity, diversity and recognition efforts.
The judging panel praised the training and nurturing of our staff from introductory roles through to senior management positions as well as our largely female workforce, operating in what is traditionally a male dominated industry.
“This award is a testament to the way we have continued to serve all of our customers and build on our collective strengths throughout the many challenges of 2020, and this year too.
“To do this, we focused on keeping each and every one of our team employed, healthy, engaged and motivated to keep learning.
“We’ve always been of the view that our people are our strength and are front of mind in every decision we make, so to have this recognised at this scale is a proud moment,” says Phil Clarke, General Manager.
When asked about our take on leadership, we explained that everyone in our business is treated as a leader and expected to show Manaakitanga in every interaction, through caring for all people in our business.
“Real leadership in our business does not necessarily have a title. Everyone in our team leads, they lead by their character, their presence and their ability to make others feel safe and secure when with us in our workplace.” says Phil.
To continue celebrating this success, Phil spent time in each of our branches to announce the award with the local team and share a meal.
