How much control does your boss have over your life?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is investigating the increasing creep of control your boss might have over your life outside work. This might include having to send photos of your remote working space (or having it personally checked off), having to abide by a social media policy, not being able to express political views in social settings, or not being able to have a secondary income. Does this sound familiar? Have you got a story to tell? Email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz

Come and work with us!

Cedenco

Hi neighbours - we are on the hunt for some great people to join our teams on both our Gisborne and Hastings sites. Our Gisborne team are working away processing crops grown throughout the region, creating amazing ingredients that they’ve perfected over the years.

On our other site in Hastings we are opening a new factory, so this is an amazing chance for you to get in on the ground floor and become one of our experts!

Both sites are looking for graders, machine operators, QC, lab tech and forklift drivers. If this sounds like you, pop down to one of our sites to pick up an application pack!

Gisborne – 40 Innes Street, Awapuni (06-869-0666)
Hastings – 1223 Tomoana Road, Hastings (06-878-1460)

We’d love for you to join us.

It's been heartwarming to hear stories from across the North Island of people taking others into their home and sharing a cup of tea together or fixing them a meal.

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
