Harvest Peaks

Welcome to the April edition of the NZEE Newsletter. We aim to inform, educate, and support employers to put people at the heart of business

If it feels like you haven’t been able to catch your breath recently, you are right. NZ has experienced an enormous amount of high stress events over recent years. Canterbury earthquakes. Pike River mine collapse. Kaikoura earthquake. Whakaari White Island eruption. Christchurch Mosque shootings. Covid-19 pandemic. Extreme weather events. Cyclone Gabrille. To name a few. This month we look at the cycle of recovery.

We share some easy tips when stress builds up in our lives. We look at the economics of climate change and natural disasters with BERL’s Birds Eye View. Link to the final episodes of the Voices of the Pacific highlighting the lived experience of Pacific seasonal workers. Learn about a new Pastoral Care program for Kiwi workers. And we take a deep dive into legal definition of “what is work”.

The NZEE Conference is a chance for us to come together to support each other as we recover and prepare for the future. Refreshed and revitalised you will return to your business armed with a range of resources, training materials, toolkits, and expert advice, to empower you. We’d love to see you there!

 Empowering Ethical Employment, the 2023 New Zealand Ethical Employers Conference. Held in Tauranga, 19-21 July 2023, registration now open.

 Our newsletter is to celebrate and to support you. Your time is precious, your feedback allows us to produce content that is relevant and useful. tanya@nzee.nz

Take care and keep safe,

Tanya Pouwhare, CEO, New Zealand Ethical Employers Inc
