They might be the smallest Council to have competed but it didn’t stop Team Hiko from Hauraki District Council from winning the Kiwi leg of this year’s Australasian Management Challenge against other councils from around the country.
In its 25th year, the Australasian Management Challenge involves teams of six local government staff and a mentor, tackling a series of real-life scenarios based on the kinds of management challenges that may arise in their day-to-day working environment.
This year’s event was held virtually due to Covid-19.
Judges praised the Hauraki team for delivering the most consistent performance and achieving high scores on all their submitted tasks during the competition.
