The present study tests whether working with whanau (extended family) has positive effects for New Zealand Maori employees. Using a sample of 197 employed Maori, factor analysis found two dimensions: whanau work connections and whanau home connections. Direct negative effects were found towards stress and anxiety and positive effects towards career satisfaction and life satisfaction. In addition significant interactions were tested found between the two dimensions of whanau connections. Interactions showed respondents with high whanau home and work connections reported the lowest levels of stress and anxiety, and the highest levels of career satisfaction. Findings indicate that indigenous employees may respond with the strongest positive outcomes when interacting and working with their extended family, which has previously been unexplored.
