Making Happiness Happen in Queenstown
1 July 2018
The Star Insurance executive team recently relaunched our internal
company values and goals, using the moto “Make Happiness Happen”.
The new vision looks at our expectations of each other and our customers while understanding that having the right mix of people & processes can create a culture
to be proud of.
To show the staff a little happiness the company took our entire team to NZ’s adventure capital for a day of new experiences.
Beginning early one Sunday morning in late May, all 25 staff hopped on the first flight to Queenstown, many having never been there before. Once in the deep south we were transferred to private helicopters and a 15 min flight to Mt Nicholas Station for a glass of champagne while watching a sheep shearing demonstration. Star CEO Nick Baker gave a presentation to all staff on the company vision for the next four years. Nick’s sermon from Mt Nicholas!
From here the team were ferried back across Lake Wakatipu for a pizza lunch in downtown Queenstown. The afternoon adventure saw everyone bused out to the Shotover river to complete the famous jetboat ride through the canyons before heading back to the airport and home to Auckland.
