4Sight’s Piwaiwaka Awards

02 June 2022




To celebrate the achievements of our People, aligned with living the 4Sight values, we have devised our own internal awards system, known as the Piwaiwaka Awards. Each quarter, our people nominate their colleagues, giving examples of how they have lived our values of Believe in Better, Act with Integrity and Thrive Together in an exemplary and outstanding way. A panel of judges made up of various levels and disciplines across the business review the nominations and select who shines through to be most exemplary, in all of our core values. Everyone is encouraged to participate and all nominations are shared and celebrated in our quarterly company meetings.


We recently held the second round of our awards and announced Mark Ashby, Manager Wellington, Principal Planning and Policy Consultant as the winner!


Mark won the award as he truly embodies our core values. The comments in the nomination included:


‘quick to share any success with the wider team and individual contributors’

‘his advice is always thoughtful, helpful and delivered in a manner that aligns with our company values and is both inspiring (believe in better) and reassuring’

‘Mark has become one of my top 'go to' people for any questions, advice or guidance’


The judging panel also considered their own experiences of Mark, commenting:


“He wants the best for the company and figures out how we can get there together”

“Here for the team both professionally and personally”

“Guiding figure who looks out for others before himself”


Congratulations Mark for such outstanding feedback!


The next round of nominations will soon be underway, and we can’t wait to hear all the great stories from our People, recognising their colleagues, truly living our values across the company.
