17 years of celebrating workplace diversity

17 years of celebrating workplace diversity


Is your organisation a model of productivity and employee engagement? Do you have a great story to tell about your workplace efforts to encourage diversity?

Entries are now open for the EEO Trust Diversity Awards NZ 2014, a not to be missed opportunity for employers to showcase how they value and nurture their most valuable asset - their employees.

EEO Trust Chief Executive Bev Cassidy-Mackenzie says that there have been so many inspirational stories shared on this platform over the years and each year brings renewed celebration.

During the event’s history there have been forward thinking flexible work programmes, anti bullying initiatives, literacy and numeracy training programmes and recruiting strategies to encourage diversity, amongst the success stories shared.

“We all want our businesses to be successful, and people are the key to that success. This Awards ceremony is about celebrating those people and the organisations who embrace the whole person in the workplace,” says Cassidy-Mackenzie.

“It’s clear that if people are encouraged to make the most of their abilities and balance their responsibilities at work and at home, they’ll be better engaged and more committed employees. The positive impact of this for employers is that they will get more of that magic workplace ingredient – extra productivity.”

The EEO Trust welcomes entries from all organisations, from any sector across New Zealand and invites you to share your diversity stories and benchmark your organisation against others. Previous entrants to the awards have found a number of positive benefits in taking part including an increased profile, a free diversity health check and being seen as an Employer of Choice.

This year there are eight categories with a Supreme Winner being chosen from the winners of each category, so more opportunities than ever before to share the successes of your workplace diversity programmes or initiatives.

So what are you waiting for? Entries for the EEO Trust Diversity Awards NZ 2014 close on Friday June 20th, with the Awards gala dinner taking place in Auckland on August 27th.
