Commission Highly Ranked in 'Best Places to Work'

New Release

24 February 2006


The Securities Commission was rated second best of 69 small workplaces in Unlimited magazine’s Best Places to Work in New Zealand Survey 2005.

“The result confirms the Commission's positive and vibrant organisational culture,” Chairman Jane Diplock said.

To qualify for the best places to work awards responses are required from at least 30 employees and 60% of staff.

“It is a great tribute to Commission staff that they have fostered a supportive, collegial and enthusiastic work environment while delivering increasingly good outcomes for New Zealand capital markets,” Jane Diplock said.

“They are a creative, fun team who enjoy working together and who are extremely professional and dedicated as well. The Commission is extremely proud of its staff.”

The Unlimited magazine's Best Places to Work in New Zealand Survey 2005 surveyed 23,400 employees from 197 organisations in New Zealand. This is up from 16,800 employees from 161 work places in 2004.
