Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand named Employer of Choice

HRD celebrates New Zealand’s standout industry leaders that are providing a truly great employee experience

Online PR News – 07-June-2021 – Auckland – Mt Wellington-based Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand has been selected in Human Resources Director New Zealand’s Employer of Choice 2021 list. This coveted list showcases the country’s best places to work.

“The past few months have been anything but easy. While our nation handled the COVID-19 pandemic decidedly better than other countries, our companies were not immune to the aftereffects of the virus. The chaos caused a spiral in mental health issues, upended our internal processes, and forced employers to find new ways to work. And yet, through it all, HR was there – shepherding the C-suite through these uncertain and anxious times,” says HRD managing editor, Emily Douglas.

“This year’s 21 winners really went above and beyond over the past 12 months – going the extra mile in safeguarding their people, protecting their organisations, and supporting the needs of their teams. Entries were judged on their achievements and initiatives across a number of areas, including learning and development, wellbeing, leadership and flexibility. Congratulations to all of our 2021 Employer of Choice winners – each shining examples of how to lead with decisiveness, compassion, and empathy.”
