Of­fice on the move

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

With the lease on the cur­rent CHB Mail of­fice in Ru­atani­wha St Waipuku­rau soon to ex­pire, the news­pa­per’s own­ers NZME have taken the op­por­tu­nity to re­lo­cate.

From the end of Jan­uary you will find the

CHB Mail and CHB’s

Hawke’s Bay To­day of­fice in the Atrium build­ing, 125 Ru­atani­wha St, Waipuku­rau.

CHB Mail ed­i­tor Rachel Wise says the new of­fice space is cur­rently a blank slate, giv­ing the com­pany a chance to con­fig­ure the workspace to suit the needs of staff who are now work­ing over multi-me­dia plat­forms, with ad­ver­tis­ing con­sul­tants sell­ing not only news­pa­per space but also ra­dio and dig­i­tal ad­ver­tis­ing.

“We’re in a fast-mov­ing and rapidly chang­ing in­dus­try and we don’t need the huge amounts of stor­age space for news­pa­per files we used to need . . . but we do need to cater for in­creased use of tech­nol­ogy,” she says.

“The Atrium build­ing has been up­graded in terms of earth­quake safety — which is some­thing we have to look at, as me­dia needs to be able to jump into action to help keep peo­ple in­formed if there is a nat­u­ral dis­as­ter.”

Staff are look­ing for­ward to the move, which, ru­mor has it, will be topped off with a new cof­fee ma­chine.
