The MATES in construction crew have been making their way around Teak sites talking to everyone about mental health in this challenging time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The MATES programme builds and strengthens communities in the workplace and across the industry – helping our people to be supportive and provide an environment that encourages positive wellbeing.

The impact of this community-based approach then goes beyond the workplace and into our every-day lives.

Teak has recently become a member of Amotai, in an attempt to engage more Maori and Pasifika subcontractors and suppliers.

Amotai is Aotearoa’s supplier diversity intermediary tasked with connecting Māori and Pasifika-owned businesses with buyers wanting to purchase goods, services and works.

Amotai verifies Māori and Pasifika-owned businesses and holds a national database of Māori and Pasifika-owned businesses that are ready for work.
