Core Values

Core values serve as the guiding principles that define the essence of a company's identity and culture. They are the fundamental beliefs that drive decision-making, shape behaviors, and establish the foundation for organisational success. At Point16, we recognise the critical importance of core values in fostering a cohesive and purpose-driven workplace environment.


Companies with clearly defined core values not only attract like-minded individuals but also cultivate a sense of unity and alignment among team members, leading to enhanced productivity, morale, and overall performance.

Core Values

What we do

At Point16, we offer a comprehensive Core Values service 5 step process designed to help businesses identify, articulate, and integrate their unique set of core values into every facet of their operations.


Our process begins with consultations to understand your organisation's history, culture, goals, and aspirations. Through workshops and interviews, we collaboratively uncover the values that resonate most deeply with your team members and stakeholders.


From there, we assist in crafting compelling narratives and action plans to embed these values into your company's DNA.

How it works:

Step 1: Ideation – the process of creating raw idea that will shape draft values

Step 2: Creation – taking the raw ideas from the ideation phase and curating a draft set of core values

Step 3: Validation – here we validate if the values are a true fit for the organisation and ensure they feel authentic

Step 4: Iteration – we iterate your 3-5 values until you are happy with them

Step 5: Implementation – we assist you in embedding your new set of values to ensure they live and breathe in your business on the day to day


Our approach

What sets Point16 apart is our commitment to delivering tailored solutions that truly reflect the essence of your organisation. We understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to core values.


That's why we take a bespoke approach, ensuring that the values we uncover are authentic, meaningful, and resonate within your specific business context.


Whether you're a small start-up or a large enterprise, we leverage our expertise and experience to guide you through the process of defining and implementing core values that align with your mission and vision.

We aim to assist you in finding 3-5 core values that encapsulate the organisational culture that you would like to continue building and aspire to have in the future.


We believe it is important to involve a wide variety of employees within each business to ensure that the values resonate with all employees within the organisation not solely the small proportion of employees that were involved in the ideation phase of the process.


For the values to gain buy-in they have to be crafted by the people of the business for the business, not values that are curated by the business for people to follow.


Multiple levels of engagement

We understand that every business operates differently. That's why we offer multiple levels of engagement to suit your preferences and budget. Whether you prefer hands-on consultation, comprehensive planning, or ongoing support, we have flexible models that fit your company's needs. 


Point16’s services are fully customisable. We operate in cycles and with changing levels of engagement. A cycle typically lasts 2 – 3 months and we have 4 levels of engagement: from the lightest touch to completely immersive. 


Sustainable Lifestyle Fund 

In 2019, the Point16 directors established the Sustainable Lifestyle Fund (SLF), a boutique private equity fund with a difference. SLF would buy and hold small / medium traditional kiwi businesses and support the management of them for long term, high yield dividends for investors while demonstrating sustainable business practices for its people and environment with practical success.  


The fund would buy great kiwi businesses that were currently profitable, with a tangible product, happy customers, and core team with optimal leverage levels. They would have profitable cashflow to pay down debt and deliver dividends and cover a range of industries that were hard to disrupt and could succeed in tough economies. 

Point16 would support management development, strategy deployment and insert mode 

  • Today P16 supports SLF by: 

  • Running effective board meetings for the OpCos and the fund 

  • Building powerful business strategies 

  • Coaching GMs and leadership teams for accountability and business brilliance 

  • Delivering strategic projects: process change, ops excellence, IT upgrades, market entry, R&D program, business case for major capex, etc. 

  • Running a federated CFO and HR function 


Since the end of 2019, the Fund Unit value has doubled, and we have achieved our revised annual dividend goals. We are on target to achieve 35 – 50% annual dividends from FY25.
