Entries now open for the Equal Employment Opportunity Trust Diversity Awards 2014

22 April 2014

Show New Zealand how much you care about your staff: now’s the time to enter the EEO Trust Diversity Awards.

With a call to enter by 20 June, and a celebratory gala dinner held on 27 August, this is a great opportunity for you to showcase how you value your greatest asset: your employees.

Based in Auckland, the EEO Trust works with employers around New Zealand to provide resources, ideas and information, and support workplaces in achieving success through effectively managing diversity. The EEO Trust is resourced by fees from member organisations and Government contributions.

The EEO Trust welcomes entries from all organisations, from any sector across New Zealand. Previous entrants to the Diversity Awards have found a number of positive benefits in taking part including an increased profile, a free diversity health check and being seen as an Employer of Choice.

“We invite businesses from around New Zealand to enter the Awards, share their diversity stories and benchmark their organisation against others,” says Bev Cassidy-Mackenzie, Chief Executive EEO Trust.

“This year we have added new categories, including the Divers-ability Award and the Cultural Celebration Award, recognising innovative responses to cultural and ethnic engagement in the workforce,” she says.
