Coca-Cola Amatil Recognised as One of NZ’s Best Employers

Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand (Amatil NZ) is the only organisation to receive the Best Employer accreditation for five consecutive years in an announcement by Kincentric.

Ten organisations across New Zealand and Australia achieved the Kincentric Best Employers accreditation with Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand the only on the list for five years in a row.

According to Kincentric’s latest study the 10 accredited Best Employers score 21 points higher in employee engagement than market average with Amatil NZ achieving an incredible staff engagement score of 83%.

Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Managing Director, Chris Litchfield, is proud of his company’s achievements and is honoured to receive this accreditation once again.

“We set our business a challenge back in 2015, to create a five-year plan to become one of the best bottlers in the world. To do that, we needed the best team in the world” saidLitchfield.

“Having our people so involved and empowered has helped us with our engagement scores, and as leaders, we are always focused on listening to our people right across our organisation. Their engagement is a critical component of our success. They know our customers, our brands and our business better than anyone.”

The Best Employer accreditation is not the only recognition Coca-Cola Amatil NZ has received in recent years. The company continued its Gender Tick accreditation received in 2018, maintained Rainbow Tick status for the past five years and won the prestigious Gold medal in HRD’s Employer of Choice Awards 2020.
