Below are examples of surveys conducted by NZWRI.
Our research section has more information about two noteworthy survey-based projects: The World Internet Project NZ and The Map of Meaningful Work.
New Zealand Care Workforce Survey 2019 Report
The 2019 report of the Care Workforce Survey is authored by Associate Professor Katherine Ravenswood, Dr Julie Douglas (from our Care/Work Research Group) and Tanya Ewertowska. It continues on from the previous Aged Care Workforce Survey reports of 2014 and 2016, and is extended in this iteration to include not only residential aged care and home and community support, but also the disability support and mental health and addiction sectors – hence the new name ‘The New Zealand Care Workforce Survey’. It reports on the experiences of care and support workers, nurses and managers in these sectors
NZ Women's Empowerment Principles Survey
Funder: NZ Women's Empowerment Principles
The aim of this survey is to uncover policies and practices within New Zealand’s largest organisations on behalf of the United Nations Women, with a specific focus on Women’s Empowerment Policies.
Ki te tahatū o te rangi: Normalising te reo Māori across non-traditional Māori language domains
Funder: Te Taura Whiri i te Roa Māori (The Māori Language Commission)
The Māori Language Commission commissioned NZWRI and Te Ipukarea (The National Māori Language Institute) to explore the integration of Māori language and Māori culture in organisations across New Zealand. The research conducts and analyses fourteen case study interviews and a large scale quantitative-qualitative survey of over 1,100 New Zealand employees to understand participation in te reo me ngā tikanga Māori.
The New Zealand Aged Care Workforce Survey
The demand for an aged care workforce in New Zealand is predicted to increase significantly in the near and long term future. At the same time, pay conditions for employees in the sector have come under scrutiny. While population demographics have been used to predict the supply and demand for aged care employees, there is little data about the current workforce in New Zealand. Furthermore, there are few, if any, opportunities for national benchmarking of workforce trends such as turnover, labour supply, training and wellbeing factors.
Ageing Workforce Survey
In order to gain a better understanding of the issues that NZ organisations need to address when engaging an ageing workforce, NZWRI and their research partners from Massey University and the University of Waikato conducted a survey of almost 300 EEO Trust organisational members.
- Ageing Workforce Survey: Understanding the Needs of NZ’s Ageing Workforce
- Ageing Workforce Survey: Managing an Ageing Workforce
- Ageing Workforce Survey: Engaging Older Workers Productively
The New Zealand Diversity Survey
In 2013, NZWRI partnered with Diversity Works (then known as the EEO Trust) and the Chamber of Commerce, Northern, to survey New Zealand organisations about a broad range of diversity issues. The New Zealand Diversity Survey has been conducted on a quarterly basis and reported bi-annually.
NZWRI publishes research on a range of news forums. Our document library holds reports for surveys, projects, presentations and Big Data. Working papers are also released here regularly.
