Appreciating our people
We are supportive of our people, and recognise there’s more to them than the work they do for NZSTA.
Development - We are committed to providing professional development for our people so they can perform their roles to a high standard and grow their skills and knowledge to fulfil their aspirations. This includes on-the-job training and mentoring, as well as attendance at courses, and conferences. We also provide study leave and reimbursement of fees for formal study when it relates to their role.
We listen - We operate with a flat structure and open door policy. We encourage ideas to be raised and we listen to our people’s opinions.
Flexibility - We trust our staff to get the job done and are flexible with our work patterns as long as business demands are met.
Wellness - We offer a range of support to assist our people with their health and wellbeing. This includes vision testing, flu jabs, Employee Assistance Programme, 10 days sick leave per year and 4 additional days leave (association days) on top of the 4 weeks annual leave to ensure appropriate rest and relaxation. We continually review our wellness initiatives to ensure we can provide the best support for our people.
