About our client

New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) was created on 1 July 1998 to provide the people of New Zealand with safe, appropriate and timely access to blood and tissue products and related services to meet their health needs. NZBS takes responsibility for the development of an integrated national blood transfusion process from the collection of blood from volunteer donors to the transfusion of blood products within the hospital environment - a vein to vein transfusion service.


The brief

NZBS asked us to redesign their induction programme to provide a streamlined, engaging developmental experience from pre-employment through to on-job performance.

Our role

We consulted widely within NZBS to design an integrated induction solution. The solution includes:

Induction Framework

Graphical Customer Journey
