Work that is both decent for workers and productive for organisations, is vital to the success of any good society.
We aim to help organisations manage work in a way that is evidence led. We seek to build knowledge about the relationship between work quality and performance, and how these can be aligned.
We do this through our four research areas of interest:
- Work Capabilities, Innovation and Productivity – leadership of work, technology and work, productive work, learning and innovation, higher education and work capabilities.
- Work and Working Life – managing people, worker voice, wellbeing at work, pay and reward, regulation of work
- Sylvia Pankhurst Gender and Diversity Research Centre – gender, sexuality, black and minoritised ethnic workers, age, class and caste
- Work in Small Enterprise – SMEs, social enterprise, self-employment, gig economy, entrepreneurship
