Member Briefing - Lower Hutt

Date: Thursday 18 Nov 2021     Time: 10am to 12pm

Venue: The Dowse Art Museum and Dowse Square 45 Laings Road Lower Hutt, Wellington 5010

Our upcoming member briefing, in partnership with ANZ, brings you expert insights and analysis to help you make the best decisions for your business.

Since our June update, the entire country entered a snap Alert Level 4 lockdown and we’ve got feedback on how that impacted businesses in our region and their subsequent response.  As if that wasn’t enough, there have been a number of policy changes in the Employment Relations space, including upcoming Fair Pay Agreements and the Holidays Act.  With our borders effectively closed, skills and recruitment remain tight, but there have been hopeful developments with the announcement that Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) workers have been granted one-way quarantine-free travel from selected countries, something our Primary sector has welcomed.  In other policy news, the Three Waters Reform Programme was launched in July to much debate, and there was also commentary around energy costs for business generally.

We’ll have our usual economic update and report on how business is faring in a much more vaccinated Aotearoa!  Last, but not least, tea and coffee are served on arrival and you’ll get the opportunity to see Simon and the team for the last time this year.

Places are limited, so register today.

These briefings are an exclusive member-only benefit, for members of Business Central, Wellington Chamber of Commerce, and ExportNZ.
