Celebrating 2023 in the North

21 December 2023

Our offices in Region 7: Pōneke-Wellington, Tairāwhiti-Gisborne, Papaioea-Palmerston North and Matau-a-Māui-Hawke's Bay wrapped up our end of year celebrations last week. 

Seeing all of these Christmas celebration images come through with everyone's bright, smiling faces is such a special sight! Reflecting back on the year and celebrating our successes with our people is important to us and it was great to kick back and enjoy a social event together.

Each year our people nominate recipients for awards that reflect our values to be presented in front of their peers. We're proud to announce our Region 07 winners for 2023!
