As New Zealand’s creative and cultural heart, Wellington is home to some of the most inspiring workplaces in the country. With attracting and retaining top talent a key for any successful business, take a look at how some of the capital’s companies are taking an innovative approach to both their office spaces and work culture.
For an innovative bunch of young go-getters, the founders of Aro Digital have taken a surprisingly humble grassroots approach to attracting the brightest emerging talent in the city. They've created a supportive work environment that fuses learning and development opportunities with home-away-from-home comforts, epic views over Oriental Bay, and direct access to the beach, beers and scooter-commutes to the CBD.
When the founders of WhosOnLocation set about designing their new workspace, they wanted it to be an environment that reflected the company’s core values: authentic, innovative and collaborative. With that in mind, they have created an open, welcoming space with some pretty nifty staff perks. Take a look around WhosOnLocation’s office crib.
Strictly Savvy has created a fun, flexible and attractive work environment where its staff are able to flourish. This unsuspecting virtual office assistance business in the heart of Upper Hutt is one of just a few companies in the Greater Wellington area that has a firm focus on attracting and retaining talent from the immediate area.
When you step inside the shared studio that houses EightyOne, Dot Loves Data and Octave, you'll find an enviable space where most of us only dream of working. The co-founders of the three companies have created a people-centric space that enables their staff to do their best "career defining work", featuring a gym, bar-come-café, artificial cricket pitch, free yoga and more.
Creating a space where staff, clients and especially themselves could “bring their whole selves” to the mix was key for the founders of creative agency Double Denim. That philosophy has spilled into their Cuba St workspace, featuring unique art work including a sign saved from legendary nightspot Mighty Mighty before the curtains came down. Take a look into Double Denim's office crib.
With a goal of helping parents across New Zealand (and the world) be more connected to their child’s learning, education company Storypark have taken a hands on approach to staff wellbeing with free lunch, flexible working and even a climbing wall. Take a look into Storypark's office crib.
