We believe that inspiring, empowering leadership should be available to all, not just those who work for big companies with dedicated training and development teams. To put our beliefs into action, we’ve made significant commitments to support our drive to help everyone develop themselves as self-reliant leaders, regardless of their location or organisation size. We’ve also intentionally built a culture within our team of giving back to the communities we serve. We do this in a variety of ways including concessions on pricing for charities and not-for-profit organisations and regular donations to causes we support. At Blanchard Aotearoa New Zealand, this commitment to serving others—which is reflected in our vision, mission, and values— is another focus that sets us apart from many other leadership development organisations.
At Blanchard, stewardship is at the core of how we run our company. But it’s not just an internal ethos—it's also about demonstrating to ourselves and those we serve that we are a responsible company.
We support local charities and empower our people to get involved in what's happening in our communities. In addition to our hands-on giving, we are scaling and enabling our Student Self Leadership programme to grow and prosper beyond what we can do by ourselves.
Be True is a core value for us. We believe that being true to oneself is a fundamental need in life and at work for us all to be fulfilled. We are wholly committed to creating a culture and environment that welcomes, enables, and encourages our team and our stakeholders to engage with fully with us and know that we will actively advocate for all members of our communities and honour their diversity.
Blanchard Aotearoa New Zealand has been working to reduce the amount of paper and other consumables that we're using and eliminating plastic packaging in our workplace. We're also actively looking into carbon offsets and how virtual training can help our customers and us because it means less travel for our facilitators and learners.
We are invested in the integrity of our digital infrastructure. When customers work with us, they can trust that they won't have a problem with their data. It also means that we're not misusing our clients’ data and we are complying with the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993.
