Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Awarded One of the Most Attractive Employees in NZ


Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) was acknowledged in the 2023 Randstad Employer Brand Research as one of New Zealand’s most attractive employers. CCEP was the top FMCG organisation on the list and placed 16th overall based on comprehensive research of New Zealand employees’ views and perceptions of employers.

The research by Randstad revealed that CCEP’s attractiveness to potential employees was based on financial health, job security and career progression.

CCEP has been recognised as an attractive employer by Randstad multiple times before; this year’s result is a significant increase in ranking from 28th place in 2022.

Randstad Employer Brand Research assesses the relative attractiveness of 150 of New Zealand’s largest companies. The 4,302 members of the New Zealand public who participated in the research were asked to identify the companies they recognised and indicate whether they would like to work for them.

Participants evaluated the companies’ attractiveness to employees on factors such as employer salary and benefits, work atmosphere, and job content.

“We are very proud to be recognised as one of the most attractive employers in New Zealand. This result reflects the dedication of our people, and this result gives us even more motivation to keep on growing and improving,” said CCEP’s General Manager of People and Culture, Clare Parkes.

Randstad New Zealand’s Country Director, Richard Kennedy, commented, “It’s fantastic to see Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand recognised as one of the most attractive employers in New Zealand. Being recognised as one of the most attractive employers in our research is an outcome of the hard work and dedication of its people over many years, to build and maintain a work environment and employer brand that is clearly resonating with Kiwi jobseekers.

“Employer brand reputation has a hugely beneficial impact on a company’s ability to attract, engage and retain talent. The achievement of Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand in being one of Randstad’s winners this year, reinforces how a compelling reputation can help an organisation stand out in a competitive talent market,” concluded Kennedy.

The 2023 Randstad research revealed that New Zealand’s workforce is shifting their preferences and what they expect from their employers, in particular showing that Kiwi jobseekers are prioritising work-life balance. Giving employers the insight to tailor their tactics to attract and keep employees.
