Our DEI vision

Our long-term vision at Holmes is to be more representative of the communities we serve—and the places we live and work. Holmes people are encouraged to dream big and be empowered to achieve their goals:

  • In an environment where you can relax and be yourself.

  • Where we recognise and value diversity.

  • With equitable support and opportunity to grow and develop.

We know diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) help us build a stronger, more creative, and more resilient team at Holmes.

Our people are encouraged to dream big and are empowered to achieve their goals—in an environment where they can relax and be themselves. We also recognise and value diversity of thought and approach, encouraging and enabling our people to share new ideas, perspectives, with the opportunity to express themselves. Across every part of our business, we make sure our people have equal support, and equal opportunity to grow, develop and pursue their passions.

Our DEI focus is driven by our Together@Holmes initiative, “TAHi”, which can also mean ‘one’ or ‘together’ in te reo Māori. Our TAHi team is a global initiative for Holmes, and it is powered by people here at Holmes who are passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion. They help bring our DEI vision to life—ensuring we create a diverse, inclusive and fulfilling environment for all of our people.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Holmes is a Founding Partner of The Diversity Agenda as well as a member of Diversity Works NZ, and scholarship sponsors of TupuToa and Keystone Trust.
