Community is a word that means so much to people of Russell Roads. We see communities as both internal (Russell Roads whānau) and external (our wider community that threads into the DNA of our business). People are Robbie and Michelle’s biggest driver to continue to invest in this company. They see Russell Roads as a vehicle to create positive outcomes in the lives of people who work for Russell Roads and the wider community outside of the business.

Below are some of the current ways we nurture our communities.

Building long-term careers

At Russell Roads, we are not looking for those who simply ’want a job’. Instead, we are looking for people who want to build a career. Our industry constantly develops opportunities for people at all skill levels. With eight divisions within our company, there are many opportunities for progression and development.

This industry also offers very competitive pay-rates for qualified and experienced people. To encourage new and current employees to develop themselves and progress within the company, we have created a career matrix Roadmap. This Roadmap is a clear and simple way for our staff to understand how to progress and build a career through different ‘levels’ within the company.

The Wellness Programme

This Wellness Programme was launched at the end of 2019 and is a dream that Michelle and Robbie have nurtured for years. As part of this programme, we aim to build a Wellness Centre for all Russell Roads staff and their families.

The centre will include:

  • State of the art gym facilities with a dedicated Russell Roads personal trainer
  • Access to a nutritionist
  • Access to counselling and family services
  • Access to financial and money management advice.

For the Road Ahead

Our commitment to the future

We will take responsibility for our actions as a business and how these contribute to all aspects of the future for our stakeholders. We will constantly value our people, protect the environment and build a sustainable and secure pathway ‘For The Road Ahead’.
