Lay summary
People spend a significant amount of time within the workplace, which means that workplaces should aim to support them for greater success. One such support network is supporting those experiencing family violence. As Pacific peoples are 44% more likely to experience physical or psychological family violence compared to Aotearoa New Zealand Europeans, there is the need for development of strategies to look after Pacific staff who may suffer from these scenarios. The aim of this research is to explore existing support networks for those who experience family violence, and align such with Pacific values to create recommendations for the workplace.
