26/03/2015 | by NZ Marketing

Our New Zealand business has been named as a Finalist in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces for 2014.

Having taken part in the survey for the last 4 years, this is the second time that they are to be officially recognised for their achievement in Employee Engagement. 

In 2013 Leading Edge won the ‘Most Improved Workplace’ Award and also received 2nd place in the ‘Best Medium-Large Workplace’ category!

“Once again, this is a significant achievement for Leading Edge. It highlights trust, our solid culture, strong leadership, and an increasing employee engagement year on year across the New Zealand business” said CEO of Leading Edge NZ. “We are true believers in an engaged workforce delivering better outcomes for our clients and are committed to continue creating a workplace where our staff love coming to work.”

Over the last 4 years they have listened to the responses of their employees and taken positive action that has resulted in a year on year employee engagement lift.
