Centre for People and Performance

A research centre focusing on people at work and the organisations they work for.

The Centre for People and Performance has a track record of conducting nationally and internationally recognised academic research, successfully delivering large funded research projects, and delivering consultancy projects for organisational clients. We also support a thriving community of PhD students in the field of work and employment.

We are one of the largest centres of our kind in the UK, and our members’ interests encompass the broad fields of human resource management, employment relations and organisational behaviour. Our title reflects the contemporary view that effective management of people is associated with enhanced organisational performance, but the focus of our work also embraces the perspective that the experience of people at work is an important area of study in its own right.
