Our aim is to cast new light on the tensions and challenges facing individuals within the modern working environment. We influence scholarly communities, policy bodies and practitioners through our research and our engagement with policy bodies, managers and employees. Research carried out within organisations explores how leadership and HR management influences employee attitudes, behaviours and performance, and examines ways in which organisational practices underpin and shape work endeavours. Research at the institutional level investigates the growing fragmentation of work, labour supply changes and new forms of work.

Our record of accomplishment in delivering projects funded by prestigious bodies including ESRC, CIPD and DCMS, bears testament to our drive to address crucial challenges facing society, business and those in the workplace.
