For the second consecutive year, Gallagher Bassett (GB) New Zealand has been recognised as one of New Zealand’s best places to work, receiving the ‘Employer of Choice’ acknowledgement from Human Resources Director (HRD) in 2022 and 2021.
The 5-Star Employer of Choice award celebrates organisations that demonstrate an ‘overriding commitment to their people above all else’. Organisations were judged on their practices and policies in a myriad of HR categories, such as mental health support, flexibility, health and wellbeing, innovation, tech implementation and recruitment, and many more.
“I am so proud of the Gallagher Bassett team for achieving this recognition for the second year in a row,” said Craig Furness, Chief Executive Officer.
“Despite the continuous challenges in the current global climate, this is a testament to the longstanding commitment we have to our people and indicates we are on the right track in doing what’s right by our people.
Listed as one of Insurance Business New Zealand’s Top Employers in 2021 and 2020, GB is a proven award-winning employer. Globally, we are continuously recognised for demonstrating ongoing commitment to our living values, and the true impact of our People & Culture team on the company’s success, fostering a culture that creates an environment where employees feel valued and supported to be at their best.
“We recognise that for our teams to perform at their best, we must be dynamic and include all ways of working,” said Gabrielle Cook, National People & Culture Manager.
Gabrielle explained how GB’s approach to being an employer of choice starts with recognising, celebrating and supporting talent.
“For example, we have people in our business who work best in the evenings – we have been able to provide flexible hours to ensure they can be at their best and celebrate and recognise this diverse way of working rather than conforming to standard business hours,” she said.
GB is a value-driven organisation where pride, trust, leadership and accountability are encouraged and celebrated. Employing more than 1,000 professionals in offices around New Zealand and Australia, GB is the premier provider of global claims services, dedicated to exceptional customer service and demonstrably superior outcomes.
