Business Preparedness Guide: Running a business in challenging times

It is our belief that SMEs in this country are a powerful force for positive change. They are not only the employers and earners; they are the dynamic drivers of change; the inspirers; the thinkers and the doers. We believe it is vital for our economy that the SME sector is as protected and supported as it can be in the weeks and months ahead. Which is why our focus is on sharing information, starting conversations and reaching out to provide support to help businesses start, survive and grow.

MYOB Future of Business: The Future is Now

There's no doubt the next three to five years of technological disruption will impact every business in New Zealand.

But are New Zealand businesses truly ready for the magnitude of change expected over the next few years? Are they prepared to ride the next wave of technological disruption? Or will they miss the opportunities of an exciting but unpredictable new world?

As the future fast approaches - and takes each of us with it - a combination of investment, business preparedness and government support will make all the difference to the success of our economy and the businesses that work to support it.

WOMEN IN TECH
MYOB special report: women in tech and the barriers to gender diversity

Women in tech need greater support says MYOB

In the latest MYOB Women in Tech report – released at a special Techweek event on Thursday 23 May – the company said there is still work to be done among the local tech sector if New Zealand is to live up to its reputation as a society that recognises, promotes and enjoys the full benefits of equal representation of women.

According to report, nearly half of the tech industry’s female leaders have personally experienced gender bias in the workplace. The report also says just 25% of local technology businesses have equal representation in their leadership teams (41% to 60% of their leaders are female), while only one in ten tech businesses work to actively address discrimination. Less than half pay their female employees the same as men in the same role.
