Workplace Wellbeing

The Workplace Wellbeing project is a collaboration between the NZ Council of Social Services, the NZ Federation of Voluntary Welfare Organisations, Community Waikato and E tū (previously the Service and Food Workers Union Nga Ringa Tota). These four organisations came together in 2006 to explore ways to support the development and maintenance of good employment practice and relationships in the community sector.

Produced specifically for tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector organisations, Mana Mahi contains 17 best practice guides on a variety of topics ranging from employment law and employment agreements through to performance management, managing employment relationship problems, mediation, unions and more.

These best practice guides, and six resource booklets can be found here.

In 2011 there was an update made to Mana Mahi, Mana Mahi 2. This took into considerations changes made in 2011 to the Employment Relations Act 2000 and the Holidays Act and contained other new information for the community and voluntary sector. These resources can be found here.
