Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand (CCANZ) has received the prestigious Aon Hewitt Best Employer Accreditation for the second year.

The Aon Hewitt Best Employer Accreditation 2017 was announced at a special luncheon held in Sydney and recognises New Zealand and Australian companies who are creating fantastic places to work.

To receive this accreditation, businesses are put through a stringent auditing process which involves an All-Employee engagement survey, People Practices Inventory and interviews with senior management teams. Only businesses that excel at delivering an exceptionally positive and engaging workplace experience for employees can progress to the next stage and be considered for the accreditation.

CCANZ managing director, Chris Litchfield, is extremely proud of his company’s achievements and is honoured to receive this accreditation two years in a row.

“Being named one of the best places to work in New Zealand doesn’t happen by accident. We have had an uncompromising focus on doing what is best by our people, who are at the heart of everything we do and who have helped us once again achieve this accreditation. This prestigious recognition pays credit to all our wonderful people and their determination and commitment to make our work environment safe, engaged and enjoyable,” says Litchfield.

“Our people are not the only ones who greatly contribute to our company. Our consumers and their communities, along with our customers and other partners, are also major reasons why our business is as successful as it is. We want to thank them for their continued support.

“Once we’ve celebrated as a team, the next step will be looking ahead to achieving the hat-trick. Collectively we are focused on creating an even more diverse and inclusive culture and look to make further progress with pay parity, inclusion and equality within our company,” says Litchfield.
