Health Now sq-01.png

NTA are proud to announce the new Partnership between the Association and HealthNow. HealthNow makes healthcare more accessible and ensures patients/employees accessing health in the private sector never neglect or delay the health they need. HealthNow provides a solution to both health businesses and end users to lubricate the transactional experience for patients, providing the opportunity to prioritise their health in a dignified manner HealthNow is a FinTech/HealthTech solution that improves access to health-based services, simultaneously increasing opportunities for patients to live healthier and health-based businesses to thrive economically. HealthNow’s core products are:

  1. Employer contributions to Health Wallet. Providing employers with a mechanism to be part of an employee’s health, creating deeper employment connections, and aiding to keep productivity at its highest with a healthy staffing unit.

  2. Self-insurance helps our end users prioritize their health needs and put money aside for the small things in advance. Promoting a prioritized health system.

  3. A BNPL (Buy Now, Pay Later) specifically for the healthcare sector. HealthNow’s BNPL service applies a health-specific lens understanding of the needs of the market and ethical product that is committed to meeting the consumer needs and their budget.

NTA are excited to work with HealthNow to promote their solutions to the industry, especially Employer Aid. We all know the industry has poor habits when it comes to staying on top of health and wellbeing. If you are an employer looking for a simple way to add employee benefits to your workplace, then download the Employer Aid Information sheet and find out how it works. It's as easy as allocating a selected dollar amount to your employee's 'Health Wallet' app each year (you choose the amount, could be $50 could be $250!) Your staff then have the means and encouragement to go and get a yearly check up using these funds, keeping your workers healthier and your workplace safer. With the added bonus of making your staff feel more appreciated and valued with an employee benefit that may even save their life. And the great part is, you only pay for what is used, so if your employees don't end up using the full dollar amount given to them each year, then you don't pay for the excess. No fees, no catch, just a simple solution. Every $1 you spend on health has a ROI of $6.

Joint Media Statement

National Road Carriers/NZ Trucking

1 October 2021

 

National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking exit Transporting New Zealand (ex Road Transport Forum)

  • Effective immediately National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking will exit Transporting New Zealand (formerly Road Transport Forum) after reaching in impasse with RTANZ regarding industry association structure.

  • Our nation and our industry face significant challenges that require us to be future focused.

  • The road transport industry plays a significant role in the national economy which has been highlighted by the pandemic and the supply chain crisis. This demands that our industry associations and representation to Government is best in class.

  • An untenable proposal was put to our associations to merge and create one centralised industry body based in Wellington.

  • Representative board members from both National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking believe such a structure would not be in the best interests of our members and would dilute the grass roots understanding of industry issues and the provision of services.

  • The membership of National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking represented 64 per cent of the Transporting New Zealand membership.

  • The exit from Transporting New Zealand enables National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking to refocus our resources to support our members needs locally, in Wellington and across sectors. Our teams and board members are looking forward to a more focused and productive output for our members.

  • A memorandum of understanding has been reached that will ensure the common ground goals and objectives between the associations on national road transport issues, sector groups and projects continue.

  • Our priority is to continue work at the grass roots level with our members, listen and understand their real-life issues, concerns, and frustrations - then provide the services and solutions that meet their needs.

  • At the same time, we need to work with local and central Government along with their agencies to effect positive change for our members and New Zealand. This agreement gives National Road Carriers and NZ Trucking the mandate to achieve this.

  • Our members have told us they need us to have a single-minded focus on the issues that keep them up at night. These include: Roading and infrastructure failure, shortage of skilled workers, compliance, climate change, the pandemic and supply chain crisis.

  • We need to be nimble – deliver great stuff today, while at the same time make sure our businesses are sustainable and maintain our social licence to operate.
