Delivering the best outcomes
Our working styles enable us to build trust, confidence, and the respect of our ministers, Treaty partners, stakeholders, and the public to achieve our vision that New Zealand is the world's most sustainable provider of high-value food and primary products.
By collectively working in a way that is engaging, open, agile and proactive – we are ensuring that we are delivering the best outcomes for our organisation and our stakeholders.
MPI's working styles
Open | Puātaata
We are receptive to the ideas of others, we know that there is more than one way to get things done, and we work in this way even when we're under pressure.
Agile | Koi
We are prepared to change tack and remain flexible in everything we do.
Engaging | Tuītuituia
Building and maintaining trust in MPI starts with engaging with our colleagues, stakeholders, partners and customers, in a warm and empathetic way, taking off the expert mantle, and genuinely listening to understand the situations of others.
Proactive | Tiro whakamua
We look ahead to anticipate challenges and opportunities and move towards them, engage with them, and effectively manage and make the most of them.
Public service values
MPI also share in the values of the Public Service Act 2020 – impartial, accountable, trustworthy, respectful, and responsive.
These serve as a reminder that we are part of a unified public service that acts as one, with a spirit of service to the community, leading to more joined-up, connected, and effective services, and improved outcomes for all New Zealanders.
