Mercury has been named as the winner for Best Enterprise Workplace in IBM’s 2017 Best Workplaces Awards.

The IBM Best Workplaces Survey identifies the best places to work in New Zealand, as rated by employees.

Mercury’s GM People & Performance, Marlene Strawson, said the award was one for all Mercury employees and the culture that they create.

“We are thrilled to be recognised as New Zealand’s best enterprise workplace by our employees. It is humbling to know that it has been our employees’ responses and ratings which have led to this recognition,” said Ms Strawson.

“To not only be a first time finalist but to also win the enterprise category is a wonderful achievement for our people.”

The winners were announced by IBM’s consultant, Emma Martin, with Mercury a category finalist for organisations with 750 employees or more.

“Mercury is one of New Zealand’s largest generators and retailers of renewable energy – a fantastic achievement for this first time finalist,” said Ms Martin.

“Mercury has emerged as a leader among New Zealand organisations in employee engagement, talent retention and workplace culture”.

IBM Best Workplaces is New Zealand’s largest and longest running employee engagement study of workplace climate and employee engagement. In 2017, over 35,000 employees from 173 organisations participated in the survey.

The overall winner of the 2017 IBM Best Workplaces Awards will be announced on 28 February 2018. For more information visit
