We’re proud to help grow our communities and connect with our indigenous culture through a range of initiatives and partnerships, including Community Post, the Akina Foundation and the Red Cross.
Volunteering is another way we try to make a difference. Each year our people get a day’s paid volunteer leave to offer their time and energy in their community – from preparing frozen meals, sewing school bags and gardening at Epuni School, to clearing drains below the walking tracks on Kapiti Island Nature Reserve.
Hundreds of our people are volunteering their time and effort every year – we’re working to get that number (9% in 2015) to 15% by 2019. It also makes a great team building activity.
If you work for New Zealand Post its just another way you can make a difference personally and to the communicties we serve.
