The future of work

The future of performance reviews is here: an evidence-based digital badge system, which nurtures employee skills in a non-discriminatory and usable way. Auckland based software company Propellerhead seeks to challenge normative structures with innovative and alternative business models, notably its new digital badge system which will be introduced in early 2018 – a feature which aims to make traditional annual reviews irrelevant and remove workplace biases such as those towards gender, race, and religion.

Make it work

Eighteen years of iD Dunedin Fashion weeks, as well as a globally recognised bachelor’s degree in fashion - it appears there is more to Dunedin’s fashion scene than David Bain’s sweater collection. Students Lillian Cotter and Paige Jansen have made their mark there with a pop-up store that funded a research trip to Shanghai.

Make it pop

Our favourite woollen shoes, Allbirds, and one of our favourite Auckland eating establishments, Coco's Cantina, are coming together, giving locals an opportunity to get up close and personal with the brand at its first Auckland pop-up store. PLUS: Allbirds flies to Australia.
