Tokoroa has top Kiwibank
Tokoroa Kiwibank has been ranked as the top performing nonlending Kiwibank in the country.
The announcement was made during Kiwibank’s Retail Achievers 2017 Awards held in Auckland recently.
Tokoroa Kiwibank manager Myra Bennett said the branch was up against over 40 nonlending branches for the top placed ranking.
‘‘The girls have done bloody well, there are six of us all together, and I think it come down to their passion,’’ she said.
‘‘They don’t come to work and think oh gosh another day at work, they really enjoy their job and enjoy helping the customers as much as they can.’’
The branch was also ranked number one in the credit card and insurance categories and in the top five for Kiwisaver.
‘‘It is not about how many customers we can get in the room it is about how many we can get in the room and help and letting them know about everything we have got,’’ Bennett said.
‘‘The manager who was here before me retired in April so I transferred in from then and what I am really really proud of is that the team were up there at the top when I came in and they haven’t let it drop. They have just carried on so it is genuinely a great team effort.’’
As for their secret to success Bennett said ‘‘you have to pay for those,’’ she laughed.
