Mana Communications is a Trans-Tasman communications consultancy established based on the kaupapa of helping individuals grow their voice, mana and reputation.
“PR consultancies are renowned for having an unhealthy work culture - I’ve experienced this working in large, international agencies,” says founder Caleb Hulme-Moir (pictured).
“I’m determined to bring a culture where excellent work is always delivered but not at the price of employee health and wellbeing, we’re aiming to promote this kaupapa rather than the standard-burn out, clock-watching culture.”
Since covid-19 lockdowns, Mana has operated on a ‘nine-day-fortnight’ model, in which their offices in Sydney and Wellington take every second Monday off. This has resulted in higher productivity, fewer sick days being taken, and all-round happier team members.
