A Long History with Sky

Sky is a New Zealand media company

Sky’s story began in 1990 as a start up in Auckland, where they set out to revolutionise the way people watched TV. They’ve since grown to serve more than 795,000 customers via Sky, Sky Sport, and streaming services Neon and Sky Sport Now, and today are proud to be leading the way in connecting New Zealanders with the sport and entertainment they love, in ways that work for them.

The media market is undergoing significant change globally as well as in New Zealand, and Sky has been on a transformation journey to build sharper customer focus and operational rigour within the business.

Sky have been working with CDL as an exclusive provider for all outplacement support for the past 4 years. CDL were initially engaged to provide various levels of support for employees affected by internal changes where they resulted in redundancies. These were at all levels of the business.

In 2019, Sky continued to partner with CDL in advance of planned organisational change to ensure that their people had support should their roles be disestablished.

CDL has since worked to support a number of employees transition into the job market, assess their careers and consider which direction to take. This included retirement planning when the need arose.
