Workplaces survey identifies the best places to work in New Zealand, as rated by employees.
Over 36,000 employees from 210 organisations, across both private and public sectors, participated in the survey in
2016. Employees provide their perceptions of their workplace on areas such as leadership, development opportunities,
involvement, recognition and more.
“It’s an honour to achieve finalist status for the fourth year running,” says Christine Barkley, Executive General
Manager – Human Resources at Rothbury. “We want to retain and attract great people at Rothbury. The Best Workplaces
Survey gives us a unique insight in to where there are opportunities to be a better workplace for our people. And it
enables us to see where we are doing things well.”
“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’.”
