Tourism New Zealand operates in 11 offshore markets and employs people of different nationalities, race and ethnicity.

The organisation recognises the value of a diverse workforce and the importance of working together to deliver on

outcomes. This is illustrated through its core organisational values namely; actions speak louder, global whānau and

unwavering belief in New Zealand.

Women and people of Asian descent continue to be well represented at all levels of the organisation. Aged people,

individuals with disabilities and people of Māori and Pacific descent are represented in the organisation. Tourism

New Zealand continues to support the development and growth of all its people and in order to facilitate this, has

undertaken the following:

Provided tools and information on Māori culture and language via Kōhanga, the intranet, and as part of the induction

workshop.

The continuation of the global community initiative ‘Global Whānau’ which celebrates the diversity of the cultures

represented at Tourism New Zealand and improves communication and connectedness between offices.

Provided a forum for discussing cultural differences and expectations with the purpose of improving communication.

Celebrated the achievements of its people through the Whētu (Star) recognition programme.

Culture and accountability

Tourism New Zealand remains committed to being a good employer and as such, to managing and leading all employees

fairly and properly in all aspects of their employment. This includes people in-market, where there are different

jurisdictional requirements and statutory minima in the areas of Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO). Tourism

New Zealand has an Equal Employment Opportunity Policy.

Tourism New Zealand has a well-defined mission, vision, set of values and behaviour expectations that we call ‘actions’.

Together this framework provides ‘our story’. In the past year our story has been integrated into our recruitment and

selection, performance management and the reward and recognition programmes.
