Agoge's Story

He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata!
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! Ben Love (pictured) in our Wellington team has been a champion for the Te Aroha programme in sharing his story and life experiences. Like Agoge, the Te Aroha programme is all about people. Their purpose is supporting Work & Income recipients who wish to pursue employment opportunities or further learning. A core component of the programme is the support received from Champions... such as Ben Love - our Wellington Solutions Manager who was recently approached to give a talk! Ben shared his story, giving a well received talk...
"Agoge definitely helped me and my family..."
Siosaia Mataele was made redundant from his previous role and with his family to look after, he needed to earn something and fast. He applied for a job, but was skeptical using a recruitment agency because of rumours we’d take a cut of his pay. Siosaia soon learned that we meant it when we told him we’d look after him, and make sure he’s happy and succeeding in his role. Siosaia was desperate and just hoping to get hired, but after an interview he showed he had the right personality, attitude and drive to succeed in a better role. He...
Making yourself uncomfortable
We were chatting with a friend last night who is doing a course in Distribution of all things. I say this purely because you wouldn’t have expected it. She was telling us how she is learning to drive a forklift and strap down a truck. She has also had to do numeracy & literacy assessments, that cause her to reach deep into the cobweb covered archives of her brain, and reignite her stored knowledge.

Successful businesses have at their centre an engaged, valued team of people. Often recruitment companies can treat people like numbers, we think that’s sad. People are our first priority, and always will be.
That means that we strive to do the best we can to care for and value our team of onsite staff as we live our vision.
We understand that for our clients, just getting someone into the role isn't the best solution. We know the cost of recruitment is not just finding someone, it's also making sure they become productive quickly and that they stay. Our onsite staff actively live our vision and 'be' values when they're out on site.
