n3 started off as the GSB (Government Stores Board), a government agency created to get better deals for New Zealand’s government departments. Over the years our business has evolved as we moved into the private sector and introduced more suppliers and members from a wide range of industries. Boost is our latest venture because we recognised that SMEs needed a way to reward employees beyond wages and salary.


History of benefit programmes

It’s believed that non-wage employee benefits arose in response to rationing during World War II. Unable to increase salaries to attract or retain talent, employers started coming up with staff perks to make themselves more attractive in the employment market. Common employee benefits ranged from free meals and buying discounts with specific suppliers to healthcare expenses and pension plans. Today, the scope for employee benefits is expanding all the time, as businesses compete for good, loyal people with valuable skills and knowledge.
