Our people

We take great pride in the manaaki and service of our people.

Our kaimahi have an international reputation in the health industry. We provide world-class healthcare to our community as well as offering 19 specialist services treating patients from across New Zealand. We are renowned academically as New Zealand’s largest teaching hospital and hold an alliance with the University of Auckland and its Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences

Our local heroes go above and beyond for patients, their whānau members or their colleagues.

Rainbow Tick

We have achieved Rainbow Tick accreditation for inclusivity and diversity, the first District Health Board in New Zealand to reach this milestone.

Being a part of the Rainbow Tick community is a way of ensuring we continually improve our processes, our environment and our culture to be a great place to work for all our employees.

A Rainbow Tick is awarded to organisations that complete a Diversity & Inclusion certification process. The certification process tests whether a workplace understands, values, and welcomes sexual and gender diversity.

Diversity Works

Having a workforce that reflects our community is important to us and it’s important to our patients. Seeing others with similar backgrounds our patients know they can be their authentic selves and that we will treat them with dignity and respect. Research shows this results in better health outcomes for our patients, community, and whānau.

Hearing Accredited Workplace Programme

We recently received full accreditation under the Hearing Accredited Workplace Programme (HAWP), a nationwide initiative through the National Foundation for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

As part of our accreditation journey, we now have increased awareness of where communication barriers exist and how we can reduce them to improve experiences for our patients, whānau, visitors and kaimahi.

By signing up to HAWP, we have made a commitment to continue to be an inclusive employer and support the hearing needs of our patients, whānau, visitors and kaimahi.
