New Zealand has made great progress in equal employment opportunities (EEO) but more needs to be done to promote and provide equality at work.
NEON is a partnership between the Human Rights Commission and the EEO Trust. It promotes leading employment practices to employers, employees, trade unions, human resources personnel, small business and every person in New Zealand interested in decent and fair work.
•Profiles of EEO Groups
•information about EEO issues
•advice for Crown entities on being a ‘good employer’
•national and overseas EEO news and media
•resources, research and case studies
NEON’s founding partners are the Human Rights Commission and the EEO Trust. Both organisations work actively to promote equal employment opportunities. We believe it is fair and just that all New Zealanders have equal employment opportunities and that EEO is good for business.
NEON aims to better coordinate information to employers and employees, and provoke discussion about specific EEO issues of interest to New Zealand workplaces. We hope others involved in advancing the progress of EEO will use NEON as a basis for cooperation and change.
