HRD celebrates New Zealand’s standout industry leaders that are providing a truly great employee experience
Online PR News – 09-June-2021 – Auckland – Penrose-based SUB60 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.”
SUB60 Couriers, part of the Freightways group, one of New Zealand’s largest freight companies, has built a reputation for looking after its people in its nearly four decades of operations. SUB60 believes that creating a culture of inclusion comes from understanding others. Creating the opportunity to learn by recognising and celebrating cultural festivals, events or campaigns, the SUB60 team identified that the more they learn about each other, the more connected they become, helping to overcome biases, prejudices and barriers.
SUB60 has an extensive training and development program which combines individual business focus with the wider group focus to prepare individuals for their next career step. Its people leaders are trained to get the most out of individual performance and increase succession planning capability. With health and wellbeing in focus, SUB60 created the role of people and culture manager as a solid platform from which to build strategic initiatives that improve the lives of its people. One key initiative has been mental health and wellbeing training for its managers and team leaders.
