At The Griffin’s Food Company, we get it – work’s important, but it’s not the only thing in your life.
Working at The Griffins Food Company – so what’s in it for you?
In many organisations, flexibility is about having time to care for other people. But for us, it’s also about you and your life too.
At The Griffin’s Food Company, trust is important – in yourself, and between us. That’s why we encourage you to work with your manager to set hours that work for you, even if that means working away from the office.
True diversity creates a more innovative business
Our focus is on creating an environment where people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds can thrive.
At The Griffin’s Food Company
It’s a no brainer – if you’re doing well, so will our business. That’s why we tackle health, safety and wellness head on.
As members of the NZ Business Leaders’ Health & Safety Forum, we have the safety of our people at the top of our list. For example, safety in leadership is part of our leadership training programme, which gives our management 360 degree feedback on their approach to safety, and how well they support their teams.
We’re also working toward zero harm by:
Wellbeing is also an important part of our focus.
Here are some of things we do to support the wellbeing of our people:
At The Griffin’s Food Company we recognize our people are our greatest asset. That’s why we’ve always done everything we can to help them learn, grow and move up in their careers. Here are some of the ways we do that:
Just because you didn't go to university doesn’t mean you wouldn’t make a fantastic leader. This programme was kicked off in 2016 to help people get into management, regardless of their background. People apply to be included in the programme, and once accepted, they’re given the support, training and skills they need to unlock their leadership potential and launch their careers.
If you’re starting on the factory floor, and will be working with machinery, you won’t just train for the job – you’ll also earn NZQA-approved qualifications. As you earn each qualification, you’ll get more rewards and responsibilities.
When you’re asked to step into a management or leadership role, we don’t just throw you in the deep end. You’re supported to gain the skills you need to inspire and manage people with the leadership training programme.
This programme helps support and grow the careers of our salaried workers by uncovering their hidden talents and potential. It’s a way of helping us identify our top people, and to support them to make shifts across departments.
If you spend all day making, packing, thinking about or inventing yummy things, it makes sense that you’d want to eat them too! On a regular basis, our team gets a chance to buy Griffin’s products at heavily discounted rates.
