Best Workplace Finalists…..Again!


Inspire Group Named as Finalist in IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey for 2014


23 September 2014 – Inspire Group, one of Australasia’s top blended learning design companies today announced it is a finalist in the Small-Medium category of the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards.  The annual programme is New Zealand’s largest and longest running study of workplace climate and employee engagement, and identifies the best places to work in New Zealand as rated by their employees.


This year over 32,000 employees from 228 New Zealand organisations, representing the private and public sectors, participated in the survey.   42 companies reached the finalist status across the five employee size categories: Small, Small-Medium, Medium-Large, Large and Enterprise.


“We are exceptionally proud of this achievement. To still retain our status as a top ten finalist for the last 8 years is awesome especially as we have had significant growth over our 13 years in business. Our team across New Zealand and Australia are so proud of the culture they have created that I am always humbled to see how highly we rank. It is so great we have a vehicle to act on the feedback this provides and we continue to use the survey to improve year on year. We are a learning organisation after all!!!!” Dan Tohill, CEO and Founder, Inspire Group


Participating organisations ask their employees to complete a confidential survey about their workplace. Employees grade their workplace and employers across key categories including leadership, culture, recognition and engagement.


“I would like to congratulate Inspire Group on achieving finalist status in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards.  The programme is a great acknowledgement of their commitment to ensuring their organisation is great place to work for their employees,” says Leighton Abbot, Senior Consultant, IBM Smarter Workforces, New Zealand.


The winners of the 2014 IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey and Awards will be announced at a black tie dinner in Auckland on 23 October.


The IBM Kenexa Best Workplace Survey and Awards are delivered as part of IBM’s Smarter Workforce initiative, which helps organisations apply proven behavioural science, statistical analysis and psychological principles to improve employee engagement and organisational performance.
