Cyclone and flood recovery support and initiatives

Cyclone Gabrielle continues to impact the Hawke’s Bay and the effects will be long-lasting.

Critical infrastructure repairs are a top priority, but the damage wrought by the cyclone is not just physical – the mental health and wellbeing of business owners, employees and the broader community cannot be understated.

Don’t ask what happens if we train them and they leave, but what if we don’t and they stay?

Running a business requires constant juggling. Including investments, infrastructure, technology, health and safety, staffing, research and development, social media, partnerships, and sustainability. In turn your people invest time, energy talents and the very best of themselves into the success of your business. An organisation is only as good as its people, and developing your team is one of the smartest investments you can make in your business.
