The Awards were celebrated with a gala dinner at the Langham Hotel, Auckland on 29 October, attended by more than 600 business leaders and members of the business community.
The Awards are the only national performance measure for New Zealand organisations that provide business support. Applications are judged by evaluators from the AUT Business School with oversight from the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation.
“The competition in this category was strong. The New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre has become well established in reputation, systems of operations and control; all of which have led to excellent performance and results,” said category evaluator and senior lecturer in Management at AUT, Dr George Thien.
“We are delighted and honoured to have won this prestigious award which recognises the consistently high standard and innovative nature of the dispute resolution services we provide.” said NZDRC Director, John Green.
AUT Dean of Business and Law, Professor Geoff Perry said: “These Awards are important to AUT because they allow us to recognise the best providers of business support in New Zealand. Business support organisations and individuals make a significant but often unseen contribution to the performance of businesses, helping behind the scenes with everything from dispute resolution, research and legal services to security, compliance and logistics. This celebration of the business support sector is a great opportunity for the AUT Business and Law Schools to join with the business community and celebrate excellence.”
The 2015 AUT Excellence in Business Support Award caps a remarkable year for NZDRC, with its Director, John Green, also being awarded the Resolution Institute 2015 Practitioner of the Year Award for Significant Contribution to Dispute Resolution in New Zealand.
