As an independent Crown Entity, Te Hiringa Mahara is required to publish a Statement of Intent (SOI) covering a period of four years, an annual Statement of Performance Expectations (SPE), as well as an Annual Report.
Te Hiringa Mahara provided the following briefing to the incoming Minister for Health following changes to Cabinet in January 2023.
Te Hiringa Mahara is committed to building on the actions of Kia Toipoto(external link) - Mahere Mahi Āputa Utu Ratonga Tūmatanui 2021-24 (Kia Toipoto – Public Service Pay Gaps Action Plan 2021-24). This is a comprehensive set of activities to help close gender, Māori, Pacific and ethnic pay gaps in the Public Service.
Under Kia Toipoto, agencies and entities with at least 20 employees in each comparative group are to publish their pay gaps, while also protecting the privacy of employees.
Te Hiringa Mahara is a new and relatively small organisation. As such, under those requirements, it does not have the historical data or the staff numbers, to publish employees pay gaps based on these groups (women, Māori, Pacific or ethnic).
Instead, we are using the data we do have and employee engagement, to develop our first Kia Toipoto Action Plan.
Our second annual report, which covers our first full year of operation from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022 is available to download.
We are excited to share our performance story and look forward to a future where people who experience mental distress or addiction, and their whānau, their broader supports and their advocates, have the support they need, when they need it.
Our first annual report, which covers our first months of operation in the 2020 / 21 financial year from 9 February 2021 to 30 June 2021, is available to download.
We are proud of what we were able to achieve in the first few months. In sharing our early performance story with you, we also acknowledge the challenge ahead. We look forward to a future where people who experience mental distress or addiction, and their whānau, families, and supporters, have the support they need, when they need it.
