We pride ourselves on our friendly supportive environment

Whilst Southern Cross Healthcare's modern medical facilities are an important characteristic of our workplace, we also pride ourselves on the friendly, supportive and inclusive environment that we nurture and enjoy.

Employees at Southern Cross Healthcare typically work in small, flexible and friendly teams within our hospital network.  We actively promote a workplace culture which embraces and reflects our core values - namely responsibility, respect, teamwork and aspiration.

We have an inclusive outlook, and a diverse workforce, which enriches our own culture.  Our employees value that feeling of being part of a major New Zealand healthcare brand that delivers high quality care and service - in a warm, friendly and fun environment.

Southern Cross Healthcare is working to be an employer of choice in attracting, motivating and retaining people, and develops integrated systems to support our people in their efforts to achieve high levels of performance and engagement.

Supporting professional development

Our professional and leadership development initiatives support our behavioural capabilities and these are aligned with a coherent and competitive remuneration framework.  Together, these deliver a foundation for the successful development of our business. 

Our behavioural capabilities system provides us with a shared language, also helping us to focus on doing the right things in the right way, and supporting development efforts and performance.

Our remuneration framework ensures that our people are working within a pay structure that is transparent, robust and competitive, and reflecting individual performance.

Learning from each other

We promote a culture of teamwork and team-based learning, which supports employees across the organisation at all levels.  Learning isn’t something that should be confined to training rooms, web-based learning environments, classrooms and conferences - although we do promote learning through those means.

We know that development can also be achieved by sharing knowledge, tackling problems together and collaborating to share ideas, experience and resources. Teamwork thus allows us to learn together, share knowledge and develop capabilities that benefit everyone.
