Driving and supporting business transformation

Following a period of rapid growth, AuCom experienced adverse business performance; largely brought on by a strong New Zealand dollar and the global financial crisis. Heightened levels of uncertainty and apprehension contributed to disconnected views about how the business should be run, a lack of cross functional communication and collaboration, and siloed decision making.

Over a period of 6 months, OPRA worked with AuCom’s leadership team in the delivery of a customised leadership programme which was aimed at lifting the collective potential of this group, their collaboration, communication, and agility.


Maximising safety; minimising risk
“Safety testing has helped assess how existing employees were ‘hard wired’, the safety risks this posed for them and how they could change their behaviours and take ownership to reduce their risk of being injured”.
