Finalists confirmed for best Kiwi workplaces

> The list of finalists for IBM’s New Zealand’s Best Workplaces Awards has been announced this morning, with organisations across almost every sector making the cut.

While 173 employers took part in this year’s study, just 43 achieved finalist status – 70 per cent of those also reached the finals in 2016 and almost half have been finalists for the last three years.

Emma Martin, a talent management solutions consultant with IBM, congratulated the finalists for their success and said it was encouraging to see long-term commitment from Kiwi employers.
