Government Consultations - Working For You - Hospitality New Zealand

Government Consultations:


1) Aotearoa New Zealand Government Tourism Strategy (closes 4 February 2019)


The Aotearoa New Zealand Government Tourism Strategy sets out the government’s aim for tourism, to enrich New Zealand through sustainable tourism growth, and looks at how it will work across government, as well as with the tourism sector, iwi, local government, communities and other stakeholders to achieve this. The government is also proposing a more deliberate and active role in tourism.

2) Local Government Funding and Financing Issues Paper (closes 15 February 2019)


The Local Government Funding and Financing issues paper describes local government in New Zealand and how funding and financing currently work. It asks questions about current pressure points and ways that councils can manage cost pressures. It then seeks views on options for future funding and financing tools.

Worksafe Research -Working For You - Hospitality New Zealand

Worksafe Research:


3) Worker Exposure Survey


This research is being done to learn more about occupational exposures and workplace practices in the New Zealand hospitality workforce, among others. The Centre for Public Health Research (CPHR) at Massey University is doing a survey for Worksafe, with the view that effective interventions may be developed to prevent work-related disease and injury. 

Participation involves a telephone interview where a CPHR interviewer will go through a questionnaire. This typically takes 30-45 minutes, and can take place at any time convenient including evenings and weekends. Questions are focused on daily working life including what hazards are encountered, as well as stress levels and satisfaction at work. There are also some general health and well-being questions, for example about respiratory symptoms and sleep.

All information given is kept confidential and only seen by the research team, and the identity of employer and/or workplace is not recorded (Massey are interested in the occupation as a group, rather than individual employers).

If you wish to participate in the study voluntarily, contact Dr Hayley Denison by emailing h.denison@massey.ac.nz, or call 0800 990 053.
