about » what's important to us

As executive and governance recruiters, and human resources professionals, connecting people, businesses and opportunities is at the heart of what we do. What motivates us, is inspiring teams and driving business growth. We're innovators and thought leaders, who maintain strong links with, and support, our wider community.

What we’re doing

  • We are strengthening the nation’s workforce by supporting the growth and development of local candidates. It has been a longstanding policy at Decipher Group for employees to invest up to 10 hours a month to provide free career development advice, leadership coaching and recruitment support to graduates and senior professionals, looking to enhance their career prospects.
  • We believe that being visible within the business community strengthens our brand and value proposition. The team at Decipher are regularly seen at networking and business events; presenting on informative topics at a variety of events; and through thought pieces that regularly appear in the media.

  • Decipher Group places high importance on being active through sponsorship and pro bono contributions. Over the past six years, Decipher has donated over $30,000 in sponsorships to various public health organisations, local community and sporting groups including the Cancer Society, Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust, Family Help Trust, Autism New Zealand, Maia Health Foundation, New Zealand Gynaecological Foundation, the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and South Canterbury Hockey.
  • We also provide our services at a heavily reduced rate to support local government and not-for-profit organisations and meet our annual pro bono contribution of 15 percent. Decipher recently supported the Rata Foundation, formerly the Canterbury Community Trust, the Ngati Mutunga o Wharekauri Iwi Trust, Cholmondeley Children’s Centre and the Maia Health Foundation by successfully recruiting several roles. Our pro bono contribution saved these not-for-profit organisations more than $35,000 in recruitment fees.
  • Decipher Group are proud hosts of the HR Leaders Forum - a collaborative, learning space for senior HR professionals in the South Island. If you are a senior HR leader interested in connecting with your peers while being inspired by thought-provoking speakers, get in touch with us. 
  • To celebrate ten years in business, in 2018 Decipher Group embarked on ‘Tens Months of Giving’ - we're making a difference by donating our time and resources to the things that matter most to our team and our clients. From donating blood on World Blood Donor Day, through to clothing drives to support woman who are re-entering the workforce – our team have become passionate supporters in helping our communities to thrive.
