“Our people are at the heart of our ongoing success..."

Stuart Dickinson, Group CE

“Our people are at the heart of our ongoing success, and we take care to ensure they engage meaningfully with their work, connect with our purpose, and have opportunities for growth and development. We have placed a high priority on being an inclusive workplace that is reflective of our clients and communities. We are making progress towards achieving our gender diversity target of 40:40:20 across all roles and programmes, with women making up 40% of all new hires in 2022 and 37% of the Senior Leadership Team. We are pleased to have completed a comprehensive Gender Pay Gap analysis, and this has been reviewed to assess root causes as well as actions and initiatives to lower the gap of 10.1%. We are also continuing to build on partnerships with organisations to assist us in increasing cultural awareness and increase access to technology careers for Māori and Pasifika people. Importantly, we have maintained an inclusive culture and work environment with a focus on ensuring women, ethnic minorities and those who identify as LGBTQ+ feel supported, safe, and able to bring their whole self to work.”
