One50 Group makes Business Awards finalists second year running
The prestigious Westpac Business Awards are nearly upon us again, and for the second year in a row One50 Group has earned a coveted place as finalists. This year we’re doubly proud because we’ve been nominated for two categories: Employer of the Year (for the second time) and also, for the first time, for the category of Excellence in Strategy and Planning.
The Westpac Business Awards are delivered annually by the Auckland Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development. They have been a highlight of the business calendar for over 10 years, and attract entrants from many enterprise sectors. The ceremony is a great way to showcase the best, most innovative and creative companies our city offers, bringing together the “business heart” of the community. Categories range from Excellence in Innovation, International Trade, Marketing, Strategy and Planning, and Customer Service Delivery to Best Emerging Business.
For One50 Group managing director Greg Munt, receiving recognition from the business awards is like icing on the cake. “One50 is really like one big family, and a lot of effort goes into ensuring the best possible environment for our team. We know that if we provide the best environment, then they in turn hand on this great experience to our clients,” he says.
Being formally recognised for excellence in strategy and planning is perhaps indicative of the fact our main goal is to “attract, develop and retain the best people”. We’ve achieved this through many initiatives. The key philosophy of our leadership team is, “if you help enough people get what they want, then you will have everything you want”. Our team has recently grown from 15 to 40 people, and we’re aiming for 60 by March 2019.
The award ceremony for North-West is being held this year at North Harbour Stadium at a black-tie dinner on October 3. It’s sure to be a great night, and we can’t wait to see how we do!
