I often feel as if I am beating a dead horse, but the things that happen at EQC are beyond the inexplicable.  Yesterday, I learned that EQC had sent thousands of e-mails to claimants in multi unit buildings telling them essentially that their claim is on hold because of the tremendous “complexity” of their claim.  Incidentally, many months ago I mentioned on this blog that EQC placed multi dwellings, and anything else that was not a multi dwelling but anyone might conceivab ...

My time in Christchurch was interesting yet sad.  I enjoyed meeting with claimants and helping answer questions about EQC and Fletchers, but it also saddened me to see many people unavoidably suffering at the hands of inept bureaucracy.  Everyone knows that a rebuild following a devastating series of earthquakes takes time.  Unfortunately, many of the delays in the residential rebuild stem from human error and idiocy.  Ultimately, the unnecessary delays will stifle economic a ...

I read this article today with a great deal of astonishment.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/8799208/Life-ain-t-fun-for-EQC-staff.  First, I do recognise that some people at EQC work tirelessly, competently, and selflessly.  However, many of the people whinging conflate activity with productivity.  EQC has the most notoriously inefficient processes imaginable and squanders resources and delays claims because of this.
