Manufacturing, Tech, and Safety Align with Pegasus and Lion
Welcoming Lion to Pegasus signals our first New Zealand partnership, and the beginning of a global solution.
Lion launches their contractor safety system with Pegasus this week, signaling a crucial partnership between one of Australasia’s largest food and beverage companies and the leading workforce management tech company.
Committed to long-term, sustainable growth, Pegasus has found a like-minded partner in Lion and will manage contractor safety for brands starting in New Zealand - including Speights, Emerson’s, Panhead Brewery, Wither Hills, and LK – with expansion of the system to Australia, the UK and USA imminent.
An Alignment of Values
“We’re looking forward to partnering with likeminded innovators who are embracing the use of technology in manufacturing and onboarding a higher skillset of contractors,” said Jo Dixon, Head of Sales at Pegasus.
“One of the great things about Lion is they’re equally excited to work with a subject matter expert in contractor management.”
“They’re looking for Pegasus to take them on the workforce journey as they further expand their safety standards on a global scale.”
“It has been a nice alignment of values as Lion is known worldwide for best practice in safety.”
The Essentials of Keeping Safe
Keeping everyone safe everyday is a key focus at Lion. The organisation says no matter where people are based, everyone who works with them knows their basic expectations when it comes to safety.
Partnering with Pegasus will see Lion replace a paper-based process for managing contractors which was inconsistent, labour-intensive, and caused delays for contractors getting on site.
“The current system we have was really difficult to apply across all our international locations – there are different rules and different legislation across the UK, US, and Australia,” said Andy Graves, Safety Leader Marketplace at Lion.
“We need a system that works across those different locations to keep our Lion team members and our contractors safe.”
A partnership with Pegasus underscores their safety essentials as contractors register and maintain their compliance to important safety rules.
“We need to be able to very quickly identify contractors that are qualified to do the type of job we’re asking them to do,” said Andy.
Using a single system with Pegasus will allow Lion to build stronger partnerships with valued contractors across their network. This will complement Lion’s Safety Essentials, one of their key commitments to worker safety and wellbeing.
Pegasus will help us build a Global Contractor Safety Solution across the entire Lion network in Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK,” said Andy.
We’re proud to partner with Lion as we help them cement their status as leaders in safety.
