Auckland, New Zealand (27 August 2020) – Chorus has been recognised in this year’s Human Resources Director NZ Employer of Choice report. This prestigious list celebrates the outstanding achievements of the top HR teams, leaders and organisations in New Zealand.

“In this age of constant disruption, organisations cannot afford to take their eyes off the challenges that might be just around the corner. Indeed, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant it’s never been more important for HR professionals to remain on their toes when it comes to attracting and retaining talent. Consequently, they must be an employer that provides outstanding initiatives such as career paths, suitable learning and development opportunities, and appropriately acknowledging a job well done,” says the Human Resources Director team. “In this year of unprecedented challenges, HRD received a huge number of nominations for the organisations that demonstrate outstanding contributions of best practice and leadership. HRD is pleased to present those 30 organisations that made the shortlist and would like to thank all those who submitted nominations this year.”

Over the last two years Chorus has heavily invested in leadership development, focusing not only on people in leadership positions, but also providing the opportunity for the development of personal leadership skills through a programme developed to help everyone realise their own genius. Chorus also has an established belonging strategy to help build an inclusive culture, aimed at strengthening the company’s collective capability – identifying, attracting, retaining and leveraging diverse talent. A highlight of 2020 so far has been the introduction of a new parental leave policy, which is in addition to the existing government entitlement.
