Supporting others to create positive and lasting impacts

This is our purpose as a company. It gives our work direction and meaning. It makes sure our whole team is on the same course and it guides us on the journey. As a freedom-centred workplace, our team is empowered to deliver. We developed our purpose together as a team and it describes what we actually do, not our aspirations. Learn more about how we defined our purpose.

Work with the happiest team in Wellington

Happiness and productivity go hand in hand. That’s why so many of our clients like to hang out with us here at Boost. It’s also why we measure team happiness. It’s part of our quest to become New Zealand’s best place to work. Each month we ask the team to rate how happy they are at work. Here’s the running average of our past four surveys.

Boost is known for the collaborative way we work. That’s because we share the same values and the same ideas about the best ways to work together.

Courage

We have considered opinions but hold them lightly. We are at our best when we embrace constructive conflict and commit to being authentic and vulnerable. Feedback is a gift to give and receive, we lean into difficult conversations. Be brave and give it a go!

Responsibility

We have a responsibility to have an economically successful organisation to ensure stability and opportunities for team members, stakeholders and clients. We take responsibility for our customers outcomes. We are in charge of our own learning and sharing knowledge with the wider team.

Servant Leadership

We are all leaders and at Boost all leaders serve. We are focussed on what we can do for others and developing our teams. We balance the needs of the individual with those of the organisation. We listen. We coach, we are humble and trusting. We value service not status.
