With this in mind, we have launched our 1-page Research Summaries which give you a good overview of our research, including the main research findings and how the findings are relevant in the New Zealand environment.

Our researchers have developed an extensive body of cross-cultural research, including New Zealand-based studies and what stands as international best practice. We understand the gap between academic research and applicability in a business and government setting, and our focus is on bridging that gap.

Our consultants will work with your organisation to meet your cross-cultural needs. This can include building a cross-cultural model, applying cross-cultural research findings to your organisation, and learning how to utilise a cross-cultural workforce and client-base to achieve economic success.
