To celebrate International Nurses Day, we launched ‘In Their Shoes’ – a celebration of our dedicated and clinically skilled nurses who work at the forefront of New Zealand’s aged care sector.
‘In Their Shoes’ acknowledges not just the kindness and compassion that our nurses bring to every day, but more importantly, their knowledge, commitment and professionalism.
To mark the day, each of our frontline nurses were gifted a pair of bespoke Allbirds, with a specially crafted message in the insoles of what it’s like to walk a day in their shoes – a token of our respect for the work that they do.
But this doesn’t stop with our current nurses. Every nurse who becomes part of our team will be gifted a pair of bespoke Allbirds, with a specially crafted message in the insoles of what it’s like to walk a day in the shoes of an aged care nurse.
