Rothbury today announced it is a finalist in the Medium-Large Workplace category of the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards. The annual programme is New Zealand’s largest and longest running study of workplace climate and employee engagement, and identifies the best places to work in New Zealand as rated by their employees.
This year over 32,000 employees from 228 New Zealand organisations, representing the private and public sectors, participated in the survey. 42 companies reached the finalist status across the five employee size categories: Small, Small-Medium, Medium-Large, Large and Enterprise.
Christine Barkley, Executive General Manager – Human Resources at Rothbury says, “It’s very exciting to get this result. It is certainly a real team effort across the whole company and our people play a huge part in creating a workplace that achieves such a great result.”
Participating organisations ask their employees to complete a confidential survey about their workplace between May and August. Employees grade their workplace and employers across key categories including leadership, culture, recognition and engagement.
“I would like to congratulate Rothbury on achieving finalist status in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards. The programme is a great acknowledgement of their commitment to ensuring their organisation is great place to work for their employees,” says Leighton Abbot, Senior Consultant, IBM Smarter Workforces, New Zealand.
The winners of the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards will be announced at a black tie dinner in Auckland on 23 October.
The IBM Kenexa Best Workplace Survey and Awards are delivered as part of IBM’s Smarter Workforce initiative, which helps organisations apply proven behavioural science, statistical analysis and psychological principles to improve employee engagement and organisational performance.
