Staff Benefits

Our Values

Manaaki | Mahi Tahi | Whanake 
Care - Collaborate - Grow

We value our people at TIMBERLANDS and the huge contribution they make to our busines and therefore we seek to offer an employment package that retains good staff and provides both direct and indirect benefits such as: 

Your Wellbeing & Security is Considered

As part of our remuneration package TIMBERLANDS provides Southern Cross Medical as well as Life, Income Protection and Trauma insurance cover to permanent employess. Annual on site health checks and flu vaccinations are also provided to ensure a good level of health is maintained. All staff are encouraged to keep fit and healthy and to support this, company sponsorship of entries into local sporting events has been provided where appropriate.

Discretionary Performance Bonus

As part of our remuneration package, TIMBERLANDS also offers permanent members of staff the ability to participate in an annual discretionary performance bonus scheme.

Staff Discounts

TIMBERLANDS is a member of the Rotorua Business Chamber and therefore makes available to staff the Member Discount Card which offers a number of discounts with local businesses. Staff are also offered a Z Energy Fuel Card, which provides staff the benefit of reduced petrol and diesel charges.

We Encourage Upskilling & Career Develpment

As an integral part of the way we do business at TIMBERLANDS, further training and professional development is encouraged to optimise performance and enhance personal development. TIMBERLANDS will consider subsidising membership costs for related industry associations, such as New Zealand Institution of Forestry (NZIF), and will support staff attendance at related annual conferences. Staff are encouraged to build experience in all aspects of the business, which in turn creates opportunities for career progression.

Work/Life Balance is Important Too

We understand the importance of personal family life and we are committed to providing a flexible working environment to meet both personal and business needs. TIMBERLANDS recognises the benefits of being able to retain skilled staff and therefore supports employees, who wish to take parental leave. To enable the transition back to work TIMBERLANDS will consider flexible working arrangements. A large number of our staff, who have young families, have established a strong social network, therefore social events involving families are a part of the TIMBERLANDS' culture.

We Have a Friendly and Sociable Team

Due to the social nature of the TIMBERLANDS's team we have weekly rostered morning teas and operate a company social club for frequent get-togethers. TIMBERLANDS also supports activities and team events that promote the health and well being of staff and reflect positively on the company’s image in the community. Annual celebratory events included a mid-winter Christmas dinner function, an end of year Christmas BBQ breakfast, a Family Tarawera Fishing competition and BBQ and we have just entered a team in an annual rowing event.

Health & Safety

TIMBERLANDS has a strong focus on promoting and maintaining the health and well being of all staff and contractors. We have a very active group of H&S reps who meet regularly to ensure Health & Safety is top of mind.

Epic Barista Coffee Machine

Much loved by all staff and  visitors, our barista style coffee machine is sure to please and means you can save your pocket money being spent on expensive coffees.
