New Zealand Health Group’s 2022 Employee Award Winners

New Zealand Health Group's 2022 Employee Award Winners

As 2022 came to a close, New Zealand Health Group came ‘Together for Good’ to celebrate the outstanding people who went above and beyond last year, with our annual employee awards. These dedicated, talented staff members exemplified our Employee Values of Working for Good, Good to Belong, Rewarded for Good, Leading for Good, and Changing for Good. Through all the joys and challenges of the past year, these employees displayed strength, character, and passion for their work and teams.

“We never stop experiencing, overcoming, and learning from challenges in our line of work, and 2022 has been no different. Everything we have accomplished this past year would be impossible without the hard work and dedication of our amazing employees,” said Josephine Gagan, Managing Director of New Zealand Health Group.

“All of our employees live and breathe our new Employee Values, which have inspired our Employee Awards this year. We are delighted to have such a dedicated group of people to acknowledge and celebrate tonight,” she added.
