“We are doubly delighted with the achievements of the last few days. Sustainability is another important value that our team all take personal responsibility for. They give generously of their time to support local charities and take ownership of local clean ups of public reserves too,” adds Mike.

Heritage Queenstown currently employs 87 full time staff and has achieved well above-average staff engagement and participation levels.
