Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori

Background In 2018, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (The Māori Language Commission) commissioned the New Zealand Work Research Institute (NZWRI) and Te Ipukarea (The National Māori Language Institute) to explore the integration of Māori language and culture in organisations across New Zealand.

This research identifies why organisations use, support and champion the use of te reo me ngā tikanga Māori (Māori language and culture) in Aotearoa, and the challenges that prevent them from doing so. Understanding the drivers and barriers of te reo Māori (Māori language), terminology and tikanga Māori (Māori culture) workplace usage is a crucial element for achieving a greater use of Māori language across New Zealand society.
