Helping combat period poverty
In 2019, we became a proud partner of Dignity, a social enterprise on a mission to provide access to sanitary items to all women in New Zealand. Through our partnership, we provide free pads, pantyliners and tampons to our people, and through Dignity’s ‘buy one, give one’ model, we then give the equivalent number of products to women who can’t afford them and girls in schools who, in some cases, would not otherwise attend due to lack of access to sanitary items.The latest on our partnership with Dignity >
New Zealand’s first accredited financial services employerA Living Wage is the income necessary to provide the basic necessities of life. We believe all New Zealanders should be empowered to live with dignity and be able to realise the benefits of working hard, and that’s why in 2018 we became the first financial services company in New Zealand to become a Living Wage accredited employer.
That means everyone working at AMP, direct or contracted, receives the living wage or higher, which reflects the real cost of living in New Zealand. Crucially, our commitment is helping to encourage other employers to take responsibility and action on behalf of their employees and Living Wage Aotearoa New Zealand (LWANZ).
Fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace
In 2018 we became a Rainbow Tick accredited employer in recognition of our genuine focus on being a diverse and inclusive workplace for people of different genders, sexualities, ethnicities, physical capabilities and cultures.
AMP’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and Rainbow Allies work closely with our executive team to continue to build our inclusive workplace and to do more to support our diversity and inclusiveness aspirations.
Helping to change attitudes towards mental health
We have been a foundation partner of the Key to Life Charitable Trust (KTL) since 2017, helping to change the way New Zealanders think, act and feel about mental health and suicide. Through our partnership, we got behind the I AM HOPE tour of towns and cities across New Zealand – a wonderful initiative led by mental health advocate and New Zealander of the Year Mike King to combat and reverse New Zealand’s high rate of suicide. And Gumboot Friday to help raise funds to provide free counselling for school aged children.
