Growing Better with NZ Ethical Employers

November - the days are longer & nights warmer, lawns, trees, orchards and vineyards are green and lush, and we see a return of delicious strawberries! It’s warming up, prefect time to celebrate with the family “Get Outdoors Week” 16–24 November.


It is widely documented that women and girls experience adverse impacts of business activities differently and often disproportionately. This month marks two key days: World Day for the Prevention of Abuse and Violence Against Children (19 November). And White Ribbon Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November). We share a Pacific opinion on how to support recovery, increase safety, and prevent further damage.

How far have we come in the 50 years since NZ passed the Equal Pay Act? Statistics NZ show we still have a long way to go. We look at what that gap means, and what we, as employers, can do about it.

And an alarming new drug has been found in New Zealand; this drug is potentially fatal. We look at what it is and how to identify it to keep your workplace safe.

See the NZEE website for more detail on what we do, why we exist, and how we protect our people.
