It was a successful night for the Agoge team at the 2018 Seek Annual Recruitment awards!
Agoge was attending as finalists for the NZ Large Recruitment Agency of the Year; as well as our Hamilton Branch Manager, Andrew South, a finalist in the Recruitment Consultant of the Year category.
And it was amazing to be announced winners in both categories at the awards night!
For Agoge Founder, Andrew Nicol, winning the New Zealand Large Recruiter of the Year was recognition for the hard work of the team who go all out to genuinely care for people. “It goes to show you can be in business and do good,” Nicol said.
With a vision of ‘People Matter, therefore, Do Good’, Agoge is constantly looking for ways to do good, not only externally, but also for the many people it engages on client sites.
“Because we work with people in such a big way we are constantly challenging what we’re doing for our people and how we can do it better. It’s such an incredible honour to be recognised,” said Agoge’s Hamilton Branch Manager, Andrew South.
Thank you to our team for all their hard work and dedication to caring for our candidates, onsite staff, customers, and our local communities!
And of course, thank you to SEEK and the judges for your time & putting on yet another great event at the SARAs for 2018.

At our latest staff conference, we announced our Agoge Person of the Year for 2018. This award is presented to a member of the team who truly displays and lives by the Agoge vision of People Matter, therefore Do Good. This year it was awarded to Linda, our National Admin Support.
Linda has a huge commitment to her role in our Support Office. She is dedicated to supporting those around her and across the Agoge branches. Linda's ability and determination means that everything she touches, turns to 'done'. Linda is invaluable to us and a perfect reflection of our vision and values.
Linda first began at Agoge in 2011 where she became Training Coordinator for our Training business, and has been a valued member of the team ever since! In this role she looked after our trainers and managed the training as a whole along with its administration. After selling the Training business, Linda moved into her current role of National Admin Support and processes all payroll for all of our onsite staff.
With a large commitment to our onsite team and internal staff, Linda does an awesome job as she takes everything in her stride. Congratulations Linda, there is no denying that this award is very well deserved.
James was recognised as recruitment leader of the year at the 2017 annual SEEK SARA awards. Winning excellence in Candidate Engagement for the second year in a row, such a huge achievement for James and the Agoge team!
We exist to invest in our future and do socially good in the world. Businesses can make a huge difference if the people and personalities within it are focused on 'doing good'. In this video, James highlights that it is people whom have values, not businesses. He also talks about what being a social business means to us at Agoge along with our business journey... And a big thanks to the team at Seek for the fantastic video too!

Agoge win supplier of the year two years running
Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd - Supplier of the Year 2014 & 2015
We were super excited last year when we won the Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd's Supplier of the Year award, having been working with Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd for just over 12 months... and we're now even more excited to announce that we have won again for 2015! The first supplier ever to win the award two years in a row.
The Supplier Forum was a great night for Agoge, taking out two of the three awards for excellence. Rachel Ross, Key Account Manager at Agoge, also won the Supplier Representative of the Year award for 2015.
The Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd Supplier Forum brings together all of Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd’s significant suppliers, big and small, to celebrate the year gone by and take a look at what the coming year might bring. It also recognises supplier excellence over the past 12 months with the supplier awards. Agoge's partnership with Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd currently provides onsite staff and training programs for manufacturing, distribution and equipment services across New Zealand.
For Rachel and our team at Agoge, these awards are an incredible honour and recognise the great partnership that we have with Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd. At Agoge, we genuinely value and care for our people, and to have this recognised by a partner such as Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd is a great reflection of these efforts across the Agoge team.
Martin King, General Manager of Human Resources for Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd, sees the quality relationship that Agoge has with Coca-Cola Amatil NZ Ltd as one that is "built on trust, rather than a supplier relationship built on exchanging invoices."
To find out more and partner with Agoge, get in touch with Jim Grafas (General Manager), or Andrew Nicol (CEO/Founder).
Agoge is a values driven human resource company that is passionate about helping employers source people who fit into their teams, are productive and stay longer.
