Best Place in New Zealand to Work – Momentum Consulting Group

Momentum Consulting Group is New Zealand’s best place to work.

The recruitment consultancy, with offices in Wellington and Auckland, came out tops in a 2003 nationwide survey which rated companies on hundreds of criteria ranging from the communication and cooperation within the organization to learning and development.

Managing Director, Bede Ashby said: “Our point of difference is simply our people and the attitude we all have to our jobs.

“It is not hard to have a great place to work, but to have the best place to work relies absolutely on the people we choose, the way we treat them, and they us. We’re small enough with 48 staff across both offices to be a family and as with any family, what you put in is what you get back,” he said.

“It is a very special honour to be named the best place in New Zealand to work and the traits that have won us this title are those that distinguish Momentum as a recruitment consultancy.”

Mr Ashby said every person in Momentum understands their role in the group and the interdependency between various positions. “They have confidence in their colleagues and their ability to deliver top-class service whether within the agency or with clients.

“It is significant that our staff’s highest rating through the survey was their understanding of the success of the organization, and that success comes from a combination of a special working environment, great people, freedom and flexibility and effectiveness.

Mr Ashby said the Momentum management team has worked hard to ensure the demands of the business on every staff member have not taken over their lives. “We believe in working hard, playing hard, but more importantly, in allowing flexibility to ensure all staff can have a genuine balance between their work and their lives. We care about each other and we have a real and evident commitment to that,” Mr Ashby said.

“We’re all determined to retain our number one status in 2004,” Mr Ashby said.
