Culture

It is an important part of Riccarton Clinic's values that team members work well together and support each other. It is also important to celebrate successes and the whole team gets a lift out of the high performance of a single team member. One of the ways that we encourage this culture is through participation in sporting and social events.

Riccarton Clinic hold two regular social events each year, the mid-winter party and the Christmas party.  Having a large number of part-time and rostered staff it is rare that some colleagues get to see one another, they can be like ships in the night.  These parties are occasions when not only do colleagues get to socialise and catch-up but it is also an opportunity for partners to learn more about the workmates of their partner.  As these events tend to be in the evening we have also held afternoon picnics at which the children of staff are invited.

Occasionally we hold an impromptu gardening competition on our balcony.  We've had Tallest Sunflower, Largest Potato Crop, and Best Bucket.

For many years Riccarton Clinic has supported the City to Sea run, providing a bbq at the finish for staff.  One of our orthopaedic team members even won it one year.  For the last two years we have entered several teams into the Mud, Sweat & Tears event at Motukurara.

Recently cycling has been to the fore, with staff members cycling together in the Source to Sea, Le Race and the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.  If this wasn't keen enough a few even took part in the night time mountain bike racing held at McLeans Island during the winter.
