Resilience in Crisis Award

This award will be presented to an organisation in recognition of a quick business pivot for a sustainable outcome in times of Covid-19.

The Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly affected our economy. Now it is more important than ever that our economy is based on the principles of environmental and social wellbeing. ‘Business as usual’ was already failing us.

Many businesses surviving this massive upheaval are redesigning the way they work and their offerings. They are recognising this as an opportunity to get things right, and on a sustainable path. Some businesses are radically changing their models and discovering entirely new directions for the organisation.

This award will be presented to an organisation in recognition of a quick business pivot for a sustainable outcome in times of Covid-19.

Enter if you have made a clever adaptation to your business for a post-pandemic New Zealand which is achieving positive environmental or social outcomes. This could be a fundamental change, the discovery of new opportunities for the business, a total turnaround, or a demonstration of agility and innovation in times of uncertainty.

Entries for this category will open at the end of August, to give businesses more time to measure the impact of their adaptation.
