For Laser Plumbing Christchurch, the ability to be flexible and adapt with the market enabled it to survive one of New Zealand’s worst natural disasters. 

When businesses discuss flexibility, and the important role it plays in their success, people will generally think about flexible working hours and the ability to work from home. And, while these areas are topical and media outlets continue to report on failure to address staff desires for flexibility in their contracts, it is not the only example of flexibility required from a small business.  

For one small business, the ability to be flexible and to adapt with the market enabled them to survive one of New Zealand’s worst natural disasters. And for this business, much of this was made possible by being a part of New Zealand and Australia’s largest plumbing and electrical network as well as a strong culture and desire to succeed despite the challenges.
