HRV named finalist in IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey for 2014
23 September 2014 – HRV is among a select group of companies who are finalists in the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards.
The annual programme is New Zealand’s largest and longest running study of workplace climate and employee engagement, and identifies the best places to work in New Zealand as rated by their employees.
This year over 32,000 employees from 228 New Zealand organisations, representing the private and public sectors, participated in the survey with 42 companies reaching finalist level across five categories.
HRV Chief Executive Bruce Gordon says the company, which is a finalist in the medium and large business category, is proud to have made it into the top tier of the Best Workplaces awards.
“This comes on the back of a four year journey for HRV, during which time we have made a substantial investment in modernising the company, creating many more jobs, and reinforcing our position as the number one home solutions company in New Zealand.
“So being a finalist is significant recognition from our great team that HRV is not only a busy and forward thinking company, but also one with a fun and supportive work environment to match it,” says Mr Gordon.
“From the hardworking call centre staff to the people on the front line in our sales teams and those who install HRV ventilation and water systems, our staff are all focussed on making New Zealand homes healthier, and it’s hugely rewarding to know that we’re doing the right thing by them too.”
Participating organisations ask their employees to complete a confidential survey about their workplace between May and August. Employees grade their workplace and employers across key categories including leadership, culture, recognition and engagement.
“I would like to congratulate HRV on achieving finalist status in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards. The programme is a great acknowledgement of their commitment to ensuring their organisation is great place to work for their employees,” says Leighton Abbot, Senior Consultant, IBM Smarter Workforces, New Zealand.
The winners of the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards will be announced at a black tie dinner in Auckland on 23 October.
The IBM Kenexa Best Workplace Survey and Awards are delivered as part of IBM’s Smarter Workforce initiative, which helps organisations apply proven behavioural science, statistical analysis and psychological principles to improve employee engagement and organisational performance.
