The Language in the Workplace Project

The Language in the Workplace Project (LWP) is unique in studying real interactions in New Zealand workplaces.

We are a team at Victoria University of Wellington, connected with other academics and workplaces around the world.

We have carried out research into humour, small talk, meetings, miscommunication and management, as well as gender and culture issues.

Our site details resources for all those with an interest in workplace talk.

Our findings can help to create a better working culture in the workplace.
