Why Diversity?

In today’s workplace, diversity is an essential driver of success.

Why ‘Diversity Works’

We live in one of the most diverse nations in the world. Economically and socially – New Zealanders are better-by-diversity on many levels.

Diversity Works:

  • At a national level
    Diversity creates a more productive, creative and dynamic society and improves our ability to see and connect with the world around us.
  • At an individual level
    People need to feel included and valued in order to be successful in our work. Without inclusion – there is a disengagement (a lower discretionary effort/lack of engagement).

We Help our Members Create:

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Inclusive workplaces that respect difference and value the diverse qualities that people bring to their work.

Real diversity is about embracing the whole person and building successful teams that recognise difference as a source of innovation, creativity, and new connections.

We stand for Diversity & Inclusion because it gives everyone the chance to work to their potential – and that’s better for business.

Workplace Wellness

Workplace Wellness

Workplaces that embrace the principles of worklife balance, flexible working and take steps to empower employee wellbeing.

Workplace wellness is critical for productive, energised teams.

Employers who provide flexibility for their employees to balance work and non-work commitments – whether it’s for family, sport or culture – are rewarded with more loyal, more focused teams.

We stand for Workplace Wellness because it reduces stress and improves motivation levels – and that’s better for business.

Safe organisations

Safe Organisations

Organisations that support people, actively promote inclusion and prevent bullying and discrimination.

Safe organisations have a healthy workplace culture.

In a safe organisation, every employee is aware that bullying and discrimination will not be tolerated. Policies are in place to protect employees and to meet the standards of New Zealand law.

We stand for Safe Organisations because they recognise discrimination and bias are unlawful and damaging.
