Betkiwi’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Betkiwi’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our goal is to offer a website experience accessible to all gamblers and punters in New Zealand. Regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation, we provide equal opportunities to all of our visitors and have the same logic when it comes to our hiring policies. Inclusive policies strengthened our company culture and sparked creativity and innovation. They helped us form an engaging and highly creative team that we are incredibly proud of, and together we are working on creating the best online community for casino and sportsbook lovers in New Zealand.

Diversity Laws in New Zealand

New Zealand has multiple laws and strategies to ensure that diversity and inclusion are adopted. Here are some of the most important ones you should be familiar with:

Public Service Act 2020

The Public Service Act 2020 ensures workplaces are inclusive for all and organisations are required to promote diversity and fairness. Those in charge must remove barriers preventing equal employment access and career progression.

Gender and Ethnic Pay Action Plan

New Zealand Foreign Affairs & Trade developed the Gender and Ethnic Pay Action Plan in 2021. The plan supports the Ministry’s goal of improving gender equality and inclusion of women. An updated plan was published for 2022/23, focusing on gender, Māori, Pacific and Ethnic pay gaps.

Human Rights Act 1993

The Human Rights Act 1993 applies to employment discrimination. This includes job advertisements, application forms, interviews, and job offers. The act is in play before and after the job and applies to unpaid workers and independent contractors. In the event of being discriminated against during recruitment, complaints can be made to the Human Rights Commission and the Human Rights Review Tribunal.

Why Does Diversity Matter?

Why Does Diversity Matter to Us?

We are 100% committed to diversity because we believe that it encourages learning and makes for a more enjoyable and productive work environment. Everyone on our team brings a unique expertise and perspective, which can benefit BetKiwi and our dear readers. When everyone feels included, with their voices heard, and opinions respected, they are more motivated and happy, which makes for a harmonious workplace. This in turn leads to a sense of camaraderie and belonging and inspires people to do their best work.
