Understanding your training and development needs and delivering flexible high-impact, expert-facilitated training programmes is the cornerstone of what we do.

Employers' have proven experience in supporting you, your team and your organisation through continuing professional development.

You will deal with a dedicated team of learning professionals. In addition to our own specialist employment and health and safety teams, we also partner with some of New Zealand's most experienced facilitators who are carefully selected for their practical experience, subject matter expertise and their skills to bring the learning alive.

We believe in an inspiring, engaging and challenging, but safe, learning environment.

In addition, we manage and deliver training programmes on behalf of the New Zealand Institute of Management (NZIM) and ExportNZ in Otago and Southland and act as the Otago agent for Business Mentors New Zealand.

As a member, you have access to all Employers', NZIM Learning and Development, She's Motivated and ExportNZ training programmes, business forums and events, all at members' rates.
