Our Ethos

At Frequency, we have a deep connection to New Zealand, our culture, and our land. This connection drives our commitment to the sustainable development of our nation’s infrastructure. It provides the foundation for how we live; from renewable power generation, public and mass transport systems, high quality teaching and learning environments, to sustainable and healthy housing.

Responsible Business

As a responsible business we are committed to positive change. We place high value on ethical and environmental practices. Respect for individuals, and for communities, unites us. We do this by being conscious and responsible throughout our business operations and decision-making processes and actively work alongside businesses that align with our cultural and environmental values.

Our people are at the heart of Frequency. Our strength lies within the broad range of backgrounds, perspectives, experience, and expertise our people bring. We are owned by our employees who are collectively passionate about Aotearoa and our industry. As proud Kiwi’s, the ability to be part of our nation building is at the essence of our people, brand, and values. They’re the reason why we continue to grow. Leading with inclusion brings our work to the next level and at Frequency we do this through promoting a workplace culture that empowers and inspires.

We recognise we have a part to play in preserving te au Māori by embracing our history and heritage. We are working on this evolving and transformative journey that will bring together the many threads that already exist within our approach and extend them in new directions.
