Dr Jarrod Haar

How well do New Zealand firms offer training and development? Who does it best? And what are the benefits?

Dr Jarrod Haar is a Professor of Human Resource Management at AUT and has Māori tribal affiliations of Ngāti Maniapoto and Ngāti Mahuta. His research focuses on wellbeing (especially job burnout), work-family-life issues (especially work-life balance), indigenous (Māori) employees, leadership, and innovation. He is ranked a world-class researcher (PBRF); has won industry and best-paper awards; and won multiple research grants (Marsden, FRST, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga). His current grants include Health Research Council (wellbeing and the precariat), a National Science Challenge (Science for Technological Innovation), and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (Māori and Work). He has over 400 refereed outputs (including 128 journal articles). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand Te Apārangi.

We are delighted to have Dr Haar present at this year’s conference and congratulate him on his recent academic award the AUT Medal for 2022.  It is the preeminent academic award at AUT, presented to a member of the AUT community in recognition of a sustained and outstanding contribution.
