Halfway through another year so we took some time to celebrate our amazing team! We enjoyed a great night at Escape HQ, along with a few pizzas, drinks, and multiple laughs. A special thank you to our incredible team for all the hard work and commitment throughout the year so far, we couldn't do it without you guys!
Kaizon & The Fire Guys finally all meet!
The teams from Kaizon and The Fire Guys got together in July for our first ever social gathering. It was awesome meeting the teams and getting to know each other, especially since we'll be moving locations soon and combining the two offices. We had a great (and very competitive) time at Tenpin Bowling, combined with a few beers and snacks - it was a winner of a night!
The game is similar to Baseball, except you play with a soft, big ball – and you kick the ball rather than bat. Here’s the catch… you need to play with a cup of beer in your hand at all times, and you have to refill your cup at second base.
Our management team brought a keg of beer to get us through the game. There were plenty of laughs, banter and competition. We’re all looking forward to round two.
We might be biased, but we reckon we have some of the best people in the industry working with us. Our team are skilled, trained, educated and innovative, with a common goal to exceed our Client’s expectations.
Monthly Round Tables
Every month we have a company catch-up over a provided lunch. Each business stream has a 5 minute presentation slot where they cover what’s happening in their team, chat about interesting, current projects, and talk about what’s coming up.
Volunteer Work & Social Responsibility
The team at Kaizon value community service and try to contribute to society and our environment in various ways. Matt Sanders, Managing Director at Kaizon, gives his time every second Friday to St John Ambulance by volunteering himself as a first responder.
The Green Building Council
Kaizon are proud to be Green Building Council members. The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) is a not-for-profit, industry organisation. Their vision is that New Zealanders live, work and play in healthy, efficient and productive buildings in a sustainable built environment.
Regular Social Events
Calling our social club committee! Every month we have a social event outside of work where everyone can let their hair down, have a laugh and get to know each other better. One of our committee members Hannah Preston says, “Our monthly social events are important to us.
Outrageous Christmas & Social Events
Forget an office party, or a few snacks at a venue – in 2018 Kaizon management took the entire company to Apia, SAMOA. Yes you heard right. Everyone jumped on a plane and were put up at the luxury Taumeasina Island Resort, Apia.
Table Tennis at the office
You’ll hear the usual office background noise here, people typing on their keyboards, chatter among staff, the coffee machine brewing – but something you might not be used to will be the sound of competitive table tennis being played.
Christmas work do 2019
This year the team at Kaizon had a spot on the Champagne Lawn at the Ellerslie Racecourse for the day, then ended the night (officially) at the bar Everybodys in the city. Bets were made and winnings were rampant – until they weren’t (cough Kevin). Everyone had a great day and enjoyed celebrating a great year together.
