PH Olsen is a major forestry services provider with multiple branches around New Zealand. The company is headquartered in Rotorua and manages more than 160,000 hectares of New Zealand plantation forest.
Forest management is a labour-intensive business that requires specific expertise. PF Olsen employs more than 160 talented people, including forest managers, harvest planners, environmental planners, regional managers, business development managers, administrators and new graduates.
When Boost approached PF Olsen executive administrator Janine Branson, she wasn’t actively looking for an employee benefit programme. However, the benefits of Boost impressed her.
PF Olsen decided to join Boost, attracted by the simplicity and usability of the Boost app. They recognised that the programme was an easy way to make employees feel appreciated and rewarded.
Senior management also liked how the programme offers a wide range of discounts and offers throughout New Zealand, so that all their employees would find the benefits useful. From subsidised gym memberships and big discounts at Torpedo 7 to cheap paint from Resene and great deals at Placemakers, Boost savings opportunities touch on every part of life.
PF Olsen joined Boost in mid-2021 and uptake by employees has been encouraging. Data analysis of Boost usage by PF Olsen employees shows that discounts from Torpedo7, BOC, Millennium Hotels, and Paddock to Pantry are the most popular benefits.
