Case Study: Maven

How does a leading civil engineering company add extra value to their employment brand?

Maven Associates Boost Case Study


Maven BOP, Maven Matamata and Maven South are a united group of civil engineering and land development companies employing many highly-specialised people. Maven’s teams are involved with some of New Zealand’s largest and most complex residential, commercial and public sector projects.


Maven’s key people are mix of civil engineers, planners and surveyors. In today’s hot employment market, the senior managers at Maven know that retaining good people is a far more efficient recruitment strategy than trying to replace people who leave.

HR champion for Maven, Michelle Bosson, is always looking new ways to add value to the company’s employment offering.

“We are working on wellness initiatives within the office, but we also want to offer our people an extra bonus that makes them feel valued.”


Michelle discovered the Boost employee benefits programme towards the end of 2021. It appealed to her for a number of reasons.

“Boost is a good price and the administration side of things is easy, so getting on board was straightforward. There’s a nice range of discounts at a big variety of places.”


Feedback from Maven’s team has been positive. Michelle reports that employees are pleased with the discounts they receive. From a personal point of view, she has been making the most of Boost.

“I’ve really enjoyed the discounts at Torpedo 7. They are amazing. I would definitely recommend Boost to other employers looking for an easy way to add employment benefits.”

Going forward, Michelle plans to educate everyone on the Maven team about the value of using Boost discounts. She aims to communicate every time a new discount is added to the programme, which will help to keep Boost front of mind for everyone at Maven.
