At Work Has The All Blacks Covered


State-Owned Enterprise At Work Insurance announced today that it has been chosen to provide insurance cover for the NZ Rugby Football Union and the All Blacks.

Marketing General Manager Murray Nickel said he was thrilled At Work was selected to provide `workplace support' for the country's national rugby team. A key role will be supporting the Union in ensuring a safe and speedy `return-to-work' for any injured player.

"The recent changes in workplace insurance have allowed organisations like the Rugby Union to make an active choice about who they insure with.

"I am delighted that they have chosen At Work, and that we were able to offer a product, a price and a service that met the Rugby Union's high standards.

Murray Nickel said that At Work had won a number of large NZ businesses as customers, including Fletcher Challenge.

"At Work has had assigned to it a significant number of small employers. It will be encouraging for them to know that some of the country's largest companies and most well known organisations had actively chosen At Work.

"As a brand new company we have worked hard to develop a product range that would suit the large number of small employers who are our customers. However we were also able to compete successfully and win large employers.

The SOE is taking out full-page advertisements in the country's main newspapers tomorrow to wish the All Blacks luck in the test against South Africa.

"When the All Blacks take on South Africa on Saturday, At Work will have them covered. I only hope someone is looking after the Springboks - they'll need it!"
