Heartland Bank is looking to increase the number of its Maori staff.

The bank, which was born out of a merger between Marac Finance and the Canterbury and Southern Cross building societies, focuses on higher-margin consumer lending, such as auto-loans and reverse mortgages, and online lending channels including peer-to-peer lender Harmoney.

Chief executive Jeff Greenslade says Maori are underrepresented in Heartland's 360-strong workforce when compared to New Zealand's working population.

It is looking at other steps to improve diversity in the organisation.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
