Workplace360 is a work environment and leadership assessment tool, designed to help you be the proud owner of a great workplace.
The assessment has three sections and it takes about 25 minutes to complete all three. You will have the chance to save and exit at the end of each section.
Only you will get a copy of your results, they won't be shared with anyone without your permission.
Section 1: Foundation
Section 2: Good Practice
Section 3: Great Practice
We will ask you for a few farm and personal details to personalise the survey and email you the results.
A few minutes after exiting the survey, you'll receive an email containing a report download link. The detailed PDF report contains:
You can complete the survey as many times as you like, and you can also download and print the questions.
Fonterra supplierscompleting this assessment for the Co-operative Difference must complete all three sections and get 100% in the Foundation section – all questions in this section are legal requirements so there shouldn’t be any surprises.
You will be given information along the way showing what evidence will be required. Ensure your answers are true and accurate for each farm, otherwise you may put the payment at risk. You will need to submit a copy of your results to Fonterra for auditing.
The reason for completing the Good and Great sections is about continuous improvement. If you want to attract and retain great employees then it is important to be doing the majority of the things asked about in these sections.

It is up to a business owner on the farm to fill out Workplace360, that might be:
All parties need to be confident that the answers given truly reflect the situation on-farm.
The person who completed the assessment does not have to be present for the dairy assessment, but needs to ensure the person who is present, has all the relevant documents.
If you have more than one farm, we would generally advise that you complete an assessment for each farm to maximise learnings.
If the farms have the same structure, facilities, processes, and procedures in place, you may be able to complete the assessment once to cover all farms. However, you need to be confident that any answers are true and accurate for every individual farm.
Evidence will vary from farm to farm depending on factors such as farm size and that is ok. The important thing is that you back up your answers with suitable evidence.
The evidence suggested throughout Workplace360 is not an exhaustive list, it is there to provide guidance.
For some questions it will clearly be a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer, others may have a level of subjectivity. Look at the types of evidence suggested to see if you could demonstrate to an auditor that you are completing the assessment responsibly.
Ethical supply chains
Proving ethical supply chains (that a product or service has been produced in a way that treats its people and the environment ethically), is of growing importance to customers.
Workplace360 is a tool which, when audited can prove the 'people' component of an ethical supply chain.
All the questions asked in the Foundation section would be considered necessary for an ethical supply chain. In the years ahead, we hope this will assist New Zealand to tell more positive stories of our dairy sector and our leadership position.
