Auckland University of Technology (AUT) start life as Auckland Technical School in 1895 and changed names several times before becoming AUT on 1 January 2000. The central mission of AUT is ‘great graduates’. To achieve this mission, we offer exceptional learning experiences, conduct research that makes a difference, engage with our communities, and celebrate a culture that is inclusive, vibrant and collegial. According to Times Higher Education we are ranked 1st in Australasia and 25th in the World for international outlook and 1st in New Zealand and 101st in the world for global research impact.
The New Zealand Work Research Institute (NZWRI) provides high-quality research across a broad multidisciplinary programme concerned with people and work. Our research groups enable over 70 research experts to provide research (at both the national and international level) that ticks the boxes for both academic rigour, as well as being relevant to policy makers in business, government, and the community in general. We focus on data rich research in three areas: Big Data research that employs empirical evidence from large administrative datasets (national and international); Primary Surveys report on cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys conducted at national, local and workplace levels, and; Mixed methods that combines the benefits of the first two.
