Our people

Engaged people

We provide a safe, open, diverse and inclusive workplace where our engaged people are energised by what we will achieve together and are proud of the difference we make.


With more than 1,000 employees up and down the country, our people are your neighbours, your friends and your customers. We live our values KEEP IT REAL, STAND TOGETHER, TAKE THE LEAD. Our commitment to making sure our people are working in a safe environment and enjoy coming to work each day has resulted in us receiving the Aon Hewitt Best Employer accreditation for 4 years in a row.

We’re also incredibly proud of the inclusive culture we have built across our business including:

  • We’ve been accredited as an Aon Hewitt Best Employer in Australasia for every year since 2016!
  • We were the first FMCG business in New Zealand to achieve the Rainbow Tick (2014). A certification showing our policies and practises welcomes and values diversity. Since then, we have been re-evaluated and re accredited every year.
  • Along with a group of proud local companies, we are a foundation member of the Gender Tick and one of the first companies to be accredited.
  • We are a sponsor of the YWCA Equal Pay Awards.
  • Our Managing Director Chris Litchfield is on the board of Diversity Works NZ (formerly EEO Trust). We are also a Diversity Works Alliance Partner
  • We have an uncompromising focus on safety and promote Zero Harm across our business so everyone can go home safely to their families.
  • YWCA recognised our commitment and alignment with their equal pay credentials by awarding us with the YWCA Compact award (2017).
  • We have an in-house committee (CODE) designed to ensure that our policies and processes allow everyone to feel comfortable bringing their whole-self to work.
  • We were one of the first organisations in New Zealand to sign on to the International Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) with the Human Rights Commission, acknowledging the fair treatment of our people.
  • We have been recognised with the White Camelia Award in 2013 and 2017 by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
