Supporting big goals and big thinkers

At Ando, we know (first-hand) that big things can come from small beginnings and that’s why we support local initiatives to shape a brighter future for New Zealanders.

We’re here for the long-haul and can’t wait to see how our partner programmes flourish and grow.


Rescue Run

This unique event pushes teams to their physical and mental limits and raises precious funding for New Zealand’s unsung heroes in our emergency response units.

Ando was a proud sponsor of the 2018 Rescue Run, also entering three teams to raise funds for the life-saving services of Coastguard, Surf Lifesaving, LandSAR (search and rescue), Fire Services, St John and Lifeline.

In the event of a natural disaster, Ando knows the importance of New Zealanders having their important assets covered, and even more so, the critical importance that our rescue services are adequately resourced to enable them to save lives.

Dive In

Dive In is the global festival helping the insurance industry get fit for the future. The yearly event highlights the need for diverse and inclusive workplaces and provides practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.

In New Zealand, the 2018 event focused on the topic of stigmatism towards mental health. Ando CEO John Lyon was joined by long-time mental health advocate, Mike King and Dr Jennifer Whelan in leading an interactive discussion on the subject. This was followed by workshops examining important questions and developing practical implementations for the workplace.

Ando are proud to support diversity and inclusivity in our workplace, and foster an environment with a proactive approach to mental health.
