Statement by Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell in response to the report of the investigation into allegations made against her of bullying:
I am pleased that the report found that bullying conduct had not occurred and I am looking forward to returning to work. This has been an incredibly difficult period for me and my family, and I want to thank my partner and children for their enormous support.
While the report made a finding of no bullying, it did indicate that some previous staff had difficulty with my communication style. I have reflected on the points made and will ensure that my communication style is professional, courteous and respectful to all staff.
I want to thank Peter Cordtz for doing such a great job as Acting Retirement Commissioner, and my staff for carrying on with some wonderful work through a difficult time.
The focus for my remaining period in office will be on the CFFC objectives of delivering financial capability and increased wellbeing. It is such important work. We’ve got a number of projects about to become effective for the benefit of all New Zealanders, and I look forward to sharing news of these with you soon.
