Kia ora from the CEO

As we emerge from another Alert Level change, it’s time to re-focus on the changing NZ business landscape that’s sure to impact many of our members in 2021. This includes the proposed Matariki holiday which I discussed recently with Mike Hosking on Newstalk ZB, the long overdue overhaul of the Holidays Act  , that we have been pushing for over many years, and increasing sick leave to 10 days, that was identified as one of the top five things employers did not want in our 2020 member survey. The vaccination roll out has begun in New Zealand, and we look forward to the business continuity benefits it can bring and will continue to work closely with Government to minimise the impacts of doing business and compliance so business can lead the way to our economic recovery.
