Letter to editor

Spark's Simon Moutter fought back tears as he spoke of the company's journey to being a better, more inclusive employer.
Last year, it was tears of regret.* We need to face the uncomfortable truths, says Spark boss Simon Moutter

* Millennial voices stifled by employers, Global Women research finds"Hearing those uncomfortable truths about the gaps between these good intentions and the way they show up hit me very hard and made me think deeply about my own leadership around diversity I felt I had let many of our people down."

"We learned is that it has to be a 'heart-led' over a 'mind-led' approach. By that I mean we have increased our focus on values and behaviours more so than metrics and processes. "The cornerstone of this 'heart-led' philosophy is fairness, rooted in the belief that proactively building a diverse and inclusive workplace is simply the right thing to do. Because it gives everyone a fair and equal opportunity to participate and benefit."
Words are cheap Simon, enough of the crocodile's tears it is time your lifted the cover off the issue and created space for real discussions to happen publicly, out in the open, instead of in private between small groups of concerned staff",

It is time to address not only the millennials but the long serving employees in your organisation who on approaching 40 years are micromanaged out with unachievable expectations ,a just reward for years of loyal and faithful service and when evidence was presented to your personally there was a failure to act to quote your own words it hit them very hard made them think deeply and drove some to consider committing suicide such was the betrayal

Daughter learning Maori at uni this semester in readiness for her early childhood degree next year (4-6 years) in the hope of eventually being a hospital play specialist (she spent bulk of her childhood in/out of hospital and the specialists really helped her, so she wants to give back and help others). It's her 26th birthday 12th August and I'm trying to find her reasonably priced (0-$15 each depending on size/condition etc) and in reasonably good condition suitable Maori/English dictionaries. She is visually impaired so some may be required to be scanned in order to enable them to have larger font for her to read. Many thanks. I'm in the Dominion/Lloyd area. Other than her very loving mum she has the support of a wonderful caring partner (it was his birthday yesterday 'friday') as well as family and friends.

Hi neighbours,

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. Although about 30,000 people in the profession are involved in the strike, not everyone agrees with it.

So, what are your thoughts on the strike? Do you think teachers deserve better pay? Or should they have stayed around the negotiating table for longer? Are you a teacher or parent with views on the topic? Let us know in the replies!

Hamilton City Council will roll out its new wheeled bin and more recycling options service from July 2020, which includes replacing the current black bag collection with separate wheeled bins for rubbish and recycling, a smaller separate food waste collection bin and using the existing recycling crates for glass only.

Waste Minimisation Advisor Charlotte Catmur says the current recycling service, which was established in 2002, is no longer ‘fit for purpose’ so the new service will be a major step forward for the city aligning it with other leading Councils in New Zealand. As part of the new service there will be assisted collections to help physically impaired or elderly residents and special services for intensive housing areas that cannot be serviced effectively through this kerbside collection service.

The new service is designed to increase Hamilton’s recycling rate from 29 per cent (by weight) to 50 per cent, which would mean diverting more than 100,000 tonnes of waste from landfill in the 10 years from 2020/21.
