Jennifer Caldwell, Partner
“At Buddle Findlay, we are committed to promoting and supporting diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We know a diverse workforce will increase our creativity, innovation, and profitability, and provide our clients and people with better experiences.
During 2022 we dug deep to understand the motherhood penalty at Buddle Findlay and have launched a market leading parental leave policy that strives to support gender equity for both parents in the first 24 months of every baby born. Enhanced KiwiSaver, annual leave and bespoke coaching are all part of our approach.
We are committed to publishing our gender pay gap on an annual basis as it creates transparency about our gap and our commitment to close it.
We have embedded a cultural capabilities framework within te ao Māori at Buddle Findlay. We support our people to improve individual Te Reo Māori and tikanga skills, integrating these into day-to-day life and work, we practice and perform regular waiata, welcome new people with mihimihi and we partner with equity group student associations. We celebrate and raise awareness to support diversity and inclusion, some of our activities have included celebrations for Matariki, Pacific languages, Pride, Chinese/lunar New Year and Ramadan.
We are proud of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we will continue to work to create a workplace that values and respects all individuals.”
