On the 18th of September, ELE hosted a training session in Christchurch for its contractors. Managing Director, Brent Mulholland says “one of our core values is “Growing Together” and as such, we want to make sure our workers are fully informed of the benefits and opportunities of contracting to ELE”. Mulholland says “it’s also vital that our Contractors are aware of their obligations and responsibilities in terms of Health and Safety and ACC, but also that they are aware of how they can grow their own business by employing and contracting more people to ELE. Mulholland says it really is about growing together”.
The training session involved ELE’s financial advisers and accounting firm Finman Services, as well as Martin Wouters from ManageACC. Brett Marsh, ELE Group General Manager opened the session by reinforcing the values of ELE and talking about how important to us it is that our Contractors understand their obligations and get the most out of their association with ELE.
All in all it was a great session with some excellent questions coming from the floor about ACC, Tax and general obligations as a Contractor. These questions were all answered and details given to attendees on where to get further information if they need it.
ELE will be hosting these sessions throughout the country on a regular basis and look forward to seeing participation numbers continuing to grow.
So if you ever thought about becoming self-employed, or you want to know more about the benefits of working with ELE as an Independent Contractor, get in touch today.
