Auckland, New Zealand - 11 Apr 2016: IBM Kenexa (NYSE:IBM) a global provider of business technology and consulting solutions for human resources, today announced enhancements to the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Programme, increasing accessibility for organisations wanting to improve engagement with their employees.

The new Best Workplaces ‘Pulse’ Survey means organisations can easily check on their progress between full annual surveys. Employees answer 20 core questions from the full survey, incorporating the key themes and characteristics that consistently distinguish the best workplaces in New Zealand, including engagement, leadership, involvement and enablement. Employers can now run surveys year round, choosing times that best fit with their business priorities, and also have the option to use their own branding. Organisations wanting to compete in the 2016 Awards will need to run their survey by August 31; those surveying from September onwards will be considered for the 2017 Awards.

“We’re launching the 2016 programme with some innovative changes that will make it easier than ever for New Zealand organisations to participate in their own way, and in their own time, and still be eligible for Best Workplaces recognition,” says Sandy Hall, Director, IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces.

“Just as successful organisations constantly listen to their customers, the best workplaces are creating a continuous dialogue with employees. Building on an annual survey snapshot with shorter interim assessments like the new Best Workplaces Pulse Survey can enable clients to better track their progress toward strategic goals and provide opportunities to ‘course-correct’.”

The IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Programme, now in its 17th year, is proudly supported by Kiwibank, the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) and the AUT Business School. It regularly attracts over 200 organisations, providing the most comprehensive set of industry benchmarks available in New Zealand. Award winners and the most improved organisations will be announced on 3rd November in five employee size categories: Small, Small-Medium, Medium-Large, Large and Enterprise.
