Help is at hand for schools looking to improve relations with Maori employees.

The School Trustees Association and Post Primary Teachers Association have collaborated to revise the publication Guidelines to Assist Boards of Trustees to Meet their Good Employer Obligations to Maori.

Trustees president Lorraine Kerr says they offer ways to transform good intentions into practical actions.

She says being a good employer depends on understanding the person in front of you and what support or encouragement they need to bring out their best.

There are some things Pakeha people and organisations tend to handle differently from Maori which can create misunderstanding and tension.

Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
