Why Intepeople

Better people make a better world.

Intepeople is proudly Kiwi – a 100% Aotearoa New Zealand owned and operated business. For over 30 years we’ve helped businesses to grow and helped people to fulfill their career potential. We genuinely believe that better people make better businesses, better people make for better communities, and ultimately better people make a better world. And that is the Intepeople difference.

Integrated people-centric services

Our team can help with every facet of an employment journey, and that makes us unique in Aotearoa New Zealand.

From recruiting the best people, to supporting the right culture, from the growth and development of leaders, through to solving a business’s people problems. Intepeople work with businesses to make better people.
"What do I love about my job? I enjoy working with great companies and adding value. My role is really diverse so one day we might be working with a company to identify the best talent, and the next day planning what capabilities a business might need for the future, providing advice on how to navigate complex people situations or making recommendations on how to improve their culture. It is interesting and challenging work, and you can feel like you are really making a difference to a business’s success."
 — Melisa Kappely, General Manager – Intepeople

Intepeople & Intesafety karakia

The following karakia has been composed by Kururangi Consulting Ltd as a koha for Intepeople and Intesafety.

We partner with Abel and David Johnston from Kururangi Consulting Ltd to ensure we are aligned with the correct tikanga (cultural protocols) when we conduct our business and build relationships with our clients.

He Uruwhetu i te rangi
He Rimurimu i te tai
He Tukutuku i taku Wharekōrero
Hereherea tātou i te ao
Hereherea tātou i te pō
Hereherea ki ngā take o te wā
Tīhei Mauri Ora!

Listen to our Karakia

Like a constellation in the sky
Like the seaweed in the tides
Like the woven panels in my house
We are bound together in day
And together at night
Bound together by the matters of these times

Better conversations start with us.
