The aim of the research collective is to carry out studies that further the creation of a sustainable hospitality and tourism (H&T) workforce in Aotearoa and beyond. By sustainable workforce, we mean “a workforce composed of individuals available or engaged in work that provides dignity, recognition, and fair reward (of at least a living wage) in a fiscally responsible enterprise” * (p. 14, Mooney et al., 2022). It is our aspiration to contribute to government policy and industry practice to achieve a hospitality & tourism sector that provides sustainable employment to all its employees, at all levels. A bridge between academics and our industry partners is promoted by open access journal Hospitality Insights-for a sustainable industry , which provides short, accessible summaries of contemporary academic research for the hospitality industry and community. The collective’s priorities are:

  • To provide data on the current situation of our H&T workforce through relevant, and timely empirical studies.
  • To collect data on the H&T career paths for employees in the sector in Aotearoa.
  • To collect data on the current perceptions of parent and young people on careers in the hospitality and tourism industry.
  • To collect data on H&T educators’ perspectives on education and careers in the hospitality and tourism sector.
  • To carry out commissioned studies on behalf of state organisations and industry partners that further our collective’s aims.
  • To collaborate with human rights organisations and state agencies that investigate human trafficking and exploitative labour in the hospitality industry in Aotearoa.
  • To establish meaningful research collaborations with international and local sustainable workforce researchers and networks to provide a power voice that advocates for sustainable workforce interests in H&T.
