The EEO Trust

The Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) Trust is a national body mandated by government to provide support to employers around the issue of equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace. 

The EEO Trust assists employers in introducing and managing proven EEO thinking and practices, encourages diversity by promoting the recruitment and development of people on the basis of merit and generates awareness of the business benefits and rewards of an inclusive workplace.

Based in Auckland, the EEO Trust works with employers around New Zealand providing the latest resources, ideas and information to support workplaces to achieve success through effectively managing diversity. The EEO Trust is resourced by fees from member organisations and Government contributions. It is governed by a Board of Trustees.

The Great generational shift 

Women in their twenties and early thirties are best placed to be the first to break the glass ceiling, according to recent research from global talent solutions company Hudson. According to the results, which analysed 28,000 psychometirc tests from across 20 different countries, younger females scored 18 per cent higher than Generation Y males on organisation skills, 10 per cent higher on people skills and 12 per cent higher on social confidence. This report suggests that as 60-year-old Baby Boomers work alongside Generation X employees in their forties, as well as twenty-somethings of Generation Y, tomorrow’s leaders will need “a completely different, and more relevant” set of skills. Read the full report here.
