Today we are very excited to announce that Provoke have been selected as finalists for the second year straight in the Kenexa Best Workplaces Awards.
This is the fifth year that Provoke has conducted the annual 'employee engagement' survey, as we believe it is a key part of an ongoing commitment the business has made to constantly measure and improve our performance and ensure Provoke is seen as an employer of choice.
This year Provoke are one of over 240 organisations participating in the awards (of which only 15 are selected as finalists in the Small to Medium category), representing nearly 39,000 employees, and we're proud of the fact that our staff were clearly enthusiastic about completing the survey given our 100% response rate.
"We work hard on building a culture and an environment that our people enjoy being a part of and thrive in. It's cliché to say that your staff are your greatest asset but for Provoke that is 100% truism. Every single bum on every single seat in Provoke adds value to our business and consequently we like to reward them with a fun, motivational and inclusive workplace" says Provoke CEO Mason Pratt.
"Over the last 12 months we've focused particularly on ensuring that despite constant growth within New Zealand and offshore, the culture and the heart of why people choose to work at Provoke doesn't change. Last year we were stoked to be finalists. This year we are pretty keen to take the top spot" say Pratt.
The awards ceremony takes place in Auckland on 31st October.
