STDC One of Best Places to Work

Friday, November 12, 2010

The South Taranaki District Council came  6th in the national JRA Best Workplaces Survey, up 3 places on last year and only .3 of a point behind 5th place.

The Council which was in the medium-large businesses (150- 399 employees) catergory, was the only public organisation to make the finals.

Council CEO Craig Stevenson was absolutely thrilled to hear that for the second year running, his organisation was a finalist in the JRA Best Workplaces Survey. Mr Stevenson believes the reason why the Council has rated so highly comes down to the quality of its people and the great culture that exits. “We employ people that have pride in their organisation, are passionate about their district and are totally committed to doing their best for our residents,” he says.

The JRA Best Workplaces Survey is New Zealand’s largest annual workplace climate-employee engagement survey and uses confidential feedback from organisations’ employees to rate their employers.

Almost 31,000 employees from 245 organisations across the country took part in the survey this year, up from last year’s 216.
