In the community 




Great relationships

Our underlying philosophy is great conversations, great futures, great relationships.

Our people spend thousands of hours per year volunteering: sitting on boards, providing key accounting services at low or no cost to organisations that couldn't operate without them, we consider to be part our firm culture, and part of our national culture.

We have over 400 directors and employees around the country who are active members of their local communities and we, as a business, give time and money to their causes. Each office is actively encouraged to form great relationships with their local community. Every year, around the country our teams take part in Pink Ribbon Day, Steptember, Movember and many other fundraising initiatives, raising thousands of dollars for worthwhile causes.

Life Education Trust NZ

Nationally, Baker Tilly Staples Rodway supports Life Education Trust. Every year Life Education educates over 250,000 children about their body, friendships, their identity, food and nutrition and helpful and harmful substances to empower them to make smart choices so they can live full and healthy lives.

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway provides financial support to Life Education Trust and we will be working with the Life Education Trust boards in each of our regions to support with matters such as sitting on the boards, fundraising and providing expertise. We will also provide direct assistance to Life Education Trust as they deliver their financial education program to secondary school students, whether through the direct involvement of our staff with students or indirectly through improving the financial literacy of their teachers.
