The industry training organisation Connexis obtained funding from the Tertiary Education Committee Covid Recovery Fund to finance research that would drive a workforce development strategy document for the future of the electricity supply industry. Three research partners were selected – Assurity, Tokona Te Raki, and Infometrics.

Assurity was also tasked with pulling all findings together and presenting them in a unified and coherent way that engaged ESI stakeholders to gain their support for career pathway initiatives.

“I certainly wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending Assurity to others. For this project, I think their adaptive approach was excellent. It was different from what I expected, but they were always confident that their ideas would work, and I think that’s reflected in the success of the final product.”

We conducted over 20 qualitative interviews and industry executives, career consultants, and vocational trainers within electricity supply and distribution companies. Our research also included the retail side of electricity supply and the diversity of careers within it.

We then blend our findings with discoveries and insights revealed by the other research partners – Tokona Te Raki and Infometrics and used our proficiency with digital communication, produced a website that presents the unified final outcome – www.reenergise.nz (This website will go live in 2022).

Results

Every industry partner is now supportive. The integration of Maori research and the contextualisation of findings have made all the difference.
