Octave recognises the importance of a healthy work-life balance, career growth, and employee well-being. The Octave EVP reflects our values and provides employees with a comprehensive package of benefits that enables them to thrive both personally and professionally.

Octave’s Employee Value Proposition (EVP) is centred around four core goals:

  1. Feeling connected
  2. Finding balance
  3. Continuously improving 
  4. Getting ahead

Feeling Connected

Octave recognises the importance of creating a culture of togetherness and collaboration. This is reflected in our hybrid working environment, which allows employees the flexibility to work from home or come into the office anytime. To foster a sense of community, Octave provides weekly paid lunches and regular sharing sessions where the team can come together, share stories, and build strong connections. 

Finding Balance

Octave recognises that your personal life is just as important as your work life. To help achieve a healthy work-life balance, we offer flexible working hours as well as unlimited mental health days, recognising that mental health is an important aspect of overall well-being. We also provide a $500 allowance towards fitness and wellness goals to prioritise physical health and well-being. After five years of service, employees are entitled to one extra week of leave each year as a reward for their loyalty and hard mahi.

Continuously Improving

The only constant is change. To stay ahead, Octave encourages continuous learning, providing a dynamic work environment, where we encourage the exploration of new ideas and technologies. To help the team achieve their professional goals, Octave offers a range of development opportunities, including five days of professional development and a $1200 training allowance. This can be used to purchase business courses, discipline-specific training, event tickets, te reo Māori courses or whatever is required to support their career and personal growth.

Getting Ahead

We provide a Christmas Bonus as a reward if we reach our company's financial goals and also offer free financial advice with provider Velocity Financial, recognising the importance of managing finances and planning for the future.

Octave’s EVP reflects our commitment to creating a supportive and inclusive work environment. By providing a comprehensive range of benefits, we empower our team to thrive both personally and professionally, create a culture of innovation, collaboration, and continuous learning, and support our mission to become NZ’s most interesting digital agency.
