A little bit of egg throwing by enthusiastic winners, Minister Jo Goodhew and BACS!

New Zealand’s best business “good eggs” were recently announced at a special function at the Department of Conservation in Wellington.

From 66 businesses put forward for an award, four LBG members were included in the nine finalists for the Good Business Egg Award of New Zealand.

Only three were awarded as the ‘very best’ by community organisations surveyed over the past year with a lineup of some of the country’s largest companies alongside some small and medium enterprises.

Business and Community Shares (BACS) was launched at the same event, a hub for community and business to share resources and skills.

Founder Julie Donvin-Irons said she was delighted with the response to the event with real interest from a great many organisations.

The Hon. Jo Goodhew, Minister of The Community and Voluntary Sector presented the awards to the three winners including LBG member BNZ Bank, USave and Vodafone.

Runners up included LBG members NZPost, Fonterra and ANZ Bank. Remaining runners up were Contact Energy, CQ Hotels Wellington and Genesis Energy,
