Membership and engagement
Insights from engagement and how they relate to the evidence and aspirations of the Group.
The voices from Taitokerau have been loud.
“Yes, we are restating long standing issues again - but these still matter! Our freshness is contained in the actions which gives a way forward to which the partners are already committed? [sic] Doing nothing is a bigger risk than doing something!”
– Harry Burkhardt, Te Purunga ki Te Raki hui January 2022.
“To address the current gaps in the Taitokerau workforce for a Regional Workforce Plan we need to avoid the mistakes of low regional pay rates of the past and remedy the consequences. Our younger whānau within our communities have said they prefer employment opportunities where they can earn and learn at the same time and the reasons are obvious, but the genuine opportunities are still too few.’” -
– Annie Totill Te Purunga, ki Te Raki member. Interview April 2022.
