Lender looks to up Maori staff
|23 Nov 2017 10:45 AM|
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.
