Leaders of tomorrow
BNZ is a principal partner of TupuToa. This programme helps identify, develop and support high potential Māori and Pasifika tertiary students and early career graduates to fulfil their career aspirations, and become business and community leaders. In November 2017, BNZ welcomed 10 TupuToa interns working in diverse parts of the business, including Social Media, Digital and Retail.
The interns are loving their time at BNZ and their colleagues are also enjoying having an injection of enthusiasm into their teams, as well as the fresh and diverse views that the interns bring.
“I learnt straight away that what I initially thought about BNZ is totally different to what it actually is.”
In 2017 BNZ was incredibly proud to achieve Rainbow Tick certification, demonstrating our commitment to attaining, maintaining and progressing an LGBTI inclusive culture.
LIFTING DIGITAL LITERACY
BNZ launched ‘Digital Gurus’, a programme designed to lift digital literacy in New Zealand, starting with our staff and customers. Currently, more than 2,500 BNZers have joined the programme, with 950 already fully trained. We’ve also successfully piloted five Digital Guru events in the community.

BNZ Private Bank has been recognised by The Banker & PWM as the ‘Best Private Bank in New Zealand’. This is the fifth year in a row we have been recognised by a global publication for the quality of our private banking services.
At the 2017 CIO Awards, BNZ won the Best ICT Team Culture Award. The award recognises the outstanding team culture in the bank’s technology space, acknowledges the role culture plays in driving success and highlights the work of technology in the bank’s response to the Kaikoura earthquake.
At the 2017 PRINZ Awards, BNZ was highly commended for its launch of BNZ Google Pay with a pay it forward campaign. Key opinion leaders were given an Android phone with a loaded card and invited to purchase Christmas toys and gifts for children in need, which were then donated to the Salvation Army.
