We live in our communities and we're connected to them. We champion people who are cornerstones in their neighbourhoods and those who put New Zealand on the world stage for their altruism.
NZME takes its commitment to connecting with all our communities seriously; this extends across the diverse, dynamic and unique.
Here are some examples of what we're doing:
The Youth Employer Pledge is a key initiative in Auckland’s Youth Employment Plan, which exists to get more young talent into work and career pathways.
NZME have made the pledge to show their commitment to employing our young talent – it’s good for business and good for the community.
This means we have also committed to a number of youth related employer events such as #JobFest
A Rainbow Tick is a certification mark, awarded to organisations that complete a Diversity & Inclusion certification process. This tests whether a workplace understands, values, and welcomes sexual and gender diversity.
Tests are carried out on the practices and policies that manage the HR (Human Resource) of an organisation.
NZME is currently undergoing the process to achieve the Rainbow Tick
The SKY TV Special Children’s Christmas Parties in association with Manuka Doctor and NZME are the biggest events of their kind in New Zealand for special needs children and their families. They work closely with hundreds of charities, schools, community groups and government organisations throughout New Zealand to select these special children. The children invited are children who suffer from one of the following: life threatening illness, physical and intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances.
The Goal is simple: To put Smiles on these children’s faces for at least one day this year!
At every event across New Zealand these children are treated to a day of celebrity stage shows, fun rides, interactive games, plenty of yummy food, face painting and many more fun activities. The highlight of the day is when the children enter Santa’s Toy Cave where they are given 2-3 high quality toys to call their own.
