Hamilton firm a finalist in diversity awards


Hamilton-based company Simcro has been named as one of two finalists in the Skills Highway category of the 2019 Diversity Awards NZ.

The awards, run by Diversity Works New Zealand, are in their 22nd year and celebrate best practice in workplace diversity and inclusion.

The judges selected 37 finalists from 76 entries across nine categories, recognising organisations that are embedding workplace diversity and inclusion into the way they operate. Winners will be announced on August 28.

Judging convenor Neil Porteous says the judges chose initiatives that were sustainable and offered long-term benefits, rather than entries based on one-off events.

They also favoured initiatives impacting a significant proportion of an organisation’s workforce.

Porteous says it was gratifying to have so many small to medium size organisations enter the awards this year. “It’s fantastic to see such a breadth of organisations focusing in this space and understanding the benefits of an inclusive workplace culture.”
