Business excellence award

Audit New Zealand has won the Drake New Zealand Government Award at the 2014 AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards.

The awards were celebrated with a gala dinner at the Langham Hotel, Auckland on 2 October.

Audit New Zealand was one of 11 category winners.

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 and the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation.

The Auditor-General Lyn Provost has commended Audit New Zealand for this achievement.

“I am pleased to see Audit New Zealand recognised with this award. It reflects the fantastic efforts they’ve been making,” she said.

AUT Senior Lecturer in Business Information Systems, Rodger Chesterfield, was one of the evaluators for the award. He said he was impressed by Audit New Zealand.

“An aspiration to learn and innovate is evident across all activities carried out by Audit New Zealand.”

Audit New Zealand’s Executive Director Stephen Walker said he was proud of his staff.

"We have had a programme of continual improvement over recent years, which has only been possible because of the commitment of our great people. This award recognises their efforts."

The standard of entries in the Awards this year was excellent, AUT University Dean of Business and Law Professor Geoff Perry said after the presentation.

“It is heartening to see the wider business sector taking a strong interest in these Awards, which highlight the important role of business support in our economy.”
