The whaanau/support selection interview is a distinctively New Zealand example of bringing cultural diversity into organizations by changing human resource management (HRM) practices. Aims to advocate the possibilities of the whaanau/support process, to discuss its problems, and to suggest future research directions. Draws on the perspectives of HRM practitioners to present three case studies which analyse the use of the whaanau/support process in terms of specific organizational objectives.
