Helping People Thrive

In FY21 we lent a helping hand to those in need and celebrated the diversity of our communities.

Habitat for Humanity

Through our AMI brand, we joined with Habitat for Humanity to improve the standard of housing for 75,000 New Zealanders.

Habitat for Humanity has almost 30 years experience in making New Zealand homes warmer, drier and healthier.  They know that improving the conditions of a home, whether that be through something as simple as installing curtains or undertaking significant repairs, can have a real impact on people’s health and wellbeing.

AMI's support of Habitat enables the community housing provider to scale its core programmes of work with families in housing need to make their homes more liveable, volunteering opportunities for our own people, and greater visibility and advocacy for safe and decent housing in New Zealand.

IAG Trade Scholarships

We continued to give young people the chance to become qualified in a trade through our IAG Trade Scholarships.

Our Trades Scholarship programme has been running since 2002 and supports trade apprentices financially as they study for a national certificate in either collision repair, vehicle refinishing, carpentry, or glazing. In the collision repair stream we also support a management training course of eligible administration staff.

We had 25 trainees complete the programme this year who all qualified and achieved NZQA level 4 in their respective trade and First Line Management.

For the best all round first year apprentice, we also have a coveted Apprentice of the Year Award in three categories, which went to Jacob Wypych for Refinishing (pictured), Hamish Eagle for Collision Repair, and Matthew Peterson for Glazing.

Rainbow Tick

We received the Rainbow Tick for the fourth year in a row.

We want IAG to be a place where all our people are seen, accepted, and embraced for who they are. Which is why we’re particularly proud to have been accredited with the Rainbow Tick for the fourth consecutive year, an achievement led by our incredible Pride@IAG community.

The Rainbow Tick is a programme designed to ensure an organisation is a safe, welcoming, and inclusive place for people of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity. One of the key mentions in this year’s Rainbow Tick report was that our people firmly believed IAG is a place where anyone and everyone can be themselves at work. 

He Rautaki Māori

We launched He Rautaki Māori, our strategy to help lift and share in growing Māori prosperity.

Aotearoa New Zealand was founded on Te Tiriti O Waitangi. Having been part of this nation through our NZI brand since 1859, it is incumbent on us to play our part in helping to create a society imbued with te ao Māori (the Māori world view) and which reflects the principles of Te Tiriti.

The development of He Rautaki Māori is IAG’s recognition and commitment to this. Through it we hope to lift and share in the social and economic wellbeing of Māori by embracing te ao Māori, fostering Māori leadership, supporting Māori business, and becoming a leading supplier to Māori.

Other support

We received the Domestic Violence Free Tick for the third consecutive year, acknowledging that our workplace is safe and supportive for anyone experiencing domestic violence.

We continued our focus on creating an inclusive environment for everyone through our Employee Network Groups, including our Matou Tagata Pasifika and our Pride groups.

Through our NZI brand we continued to provide financial and career support to four First Foundation scholars, as they journey through their tertiary education.

We continued our support of Rural Women New Zealand as the premium partner of the NZI Rural Women New Zealand Business Awards, which celebrate business excellence of women in rural communities.
