What you can do as an employer to create a safe and equal workplace

Māori make up 11% in the trades and there are even fewer Māori women. With multiple genders, ethnicities, and classes to consider, it can be a bit scary for us to make moves into the industry without knowing that it is safe.

Flexibility at Work
Life gives us a lot to juggle. Flexible work arrangements can help you manage it all.
There are lots of ways to look at flexible work solutions and they don’t necessarily mean working less. Flexibility is about helping people to manage their work and personal commitments while also meeting the needs of your business.
