In February 2021, the call went out for submissions for HRD’s Employer of Choice awards. Organisations of all sizes and across all industries in New Zealand were encouraged to enter.
By 5 March, HRD was inundated with entries and the judging process began. Entries were scored on the companies’ achievements and initiatives across a range of areas, including leadership, learning and development, wellbeing, flexibility, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and recruitment. These areas represent the core facets of HR, as well as the new challenges facing employers as a result of the global pandemic. The judging panel took into consideration both qualitative and quantitative data, such as engagement survey results, average employee tenure and turnover rate.
This year, 21 companies have been commended for their achievements and selected as HRD’s 2021 Employers of Choice.
Total Oil New Zealand was one of those 21 companies, alongside names such as Chorus, Coca-Cola, and Xero. You can find out more here.
Total Oil New Zealand prides itself on having a clear strategy, one that involves all our partners: to be the best supplier of the best quality product, the best technical support and to be the best employer. Repetitive? We are okay with that.
Striving to be the best means clear direction, building solid partnerships, and hiring people who are behind the vision 100%.
Our staff are our number one asset and as such we look after our team. We believe that happy, well-trained staff that share our vision and goals is the only way to ensure a great customer experience. As such, we go the extra mile for our staff – providing health and income protection, mental health services, paid volunteer leave, and a detailed wellness programme to keep us at the top of our game.
Our five pillars are very important to us, we live and breathe them and every one of us ensures they are put into practice every single day.
At Total Oil New Zealand we do not compromise on cultural fit – our people don’t just fit our culture, they further it.
