Wayne Wilson: Human Resources Manager

Photo shows Wayne Wilson, human resources manager at Palmerston North City Council.

Whereas others can feel justifiably proud of physical achievements around the city, in human resources our goal is to improve organisational performance through developing staff to reach their potential.

Our staff surveys have reported that the most important thing that makes the Council a great place to work is the people that we work with. This, along with being able to serve our community and making a difference are the reasons I enjoy my job.

As a manager I get the most satisfaction out of assisting in the development of my staff, in particular people who are just starting their career. They have so many new ideas and lots of knowledge that we can all learn from.

I believe Manawatū is a wonderful place to live. Palmerston North has all the retail advantages of a metropolitan city while still maintaining the social aspects of a rural town.
