Employer of Choice: 1-99 Employees

Employer of Choice 2019

Gold: Clorox

Clorox won the gold prize for the 1-99 employees category, garnering top marks in the fields of remuneration and health and wellbeing.  

The company’s superior remuneration scheme features car allowances, bonuses between 5-15%, and merit increases of 3-10% depending on individual performance and consumer price index (CPI). In order for remuneration to remain competitive, it regularly conducts comparisons against Mercer market data, as well as against general market knowledge.  


Silver: Bellingham Wallace 

Bellingham Wallace won silver in the 1-99 employees category, achieving top ratings in the fields of leadership and reward and recognition.  

The company sponsors the AIMES Emerging Talent Awards, as well as various other community endeavours and initiatives including the Royal New Zealand Coastguard, the North Harbour Club, and the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.  

Despite being a small company, the company strives hard to offer a meaningful reward and recognition strategy, showering employees with perks like service anniversary gifts, free fruit, free flu vaccinations, birthday cake, Christmas gifts and guilt-free leave days.
