Edited by Valerie Caven and Stefanos Nachmias, this book offers a comprehensive understanding and awareness of managerial and organisational practices that perpetuate social exclusion and discrimination towards individuals in the workplace
The book presents a critical framework for assessing whether organisational practice and function reinforces unseen potential differences amongst individuals in the workplace. It offers a comprehensive understanding and awareness of managerial and organisational practices that perpetuate social exclusion and discrimination towards individuals in the workplace. The book draws together themes of non-declared medical or physical conditions, voluntary and involuntary disclosure of difference, dietary requirements, lifestyle, organisational engagement and cognitive bias. As a result, the book provides a unique blend of scholarly and professional research, and brings those who have been affected by social stigmas and discrimination in the workplace to the fore. Hidden Inequalities in the Workplace also offers practical and strategic insights for practitioners, students and policy-makers, and delves the strategic nature of policy intervention and thought-provoking dialogue.
The aim of the research is to explore engagement in practice, specifically, the role of line managers in the implementation of employee engagement.

In 2016, Engage for Success established the Line Manager Thought and Action Group (TAG) to explore the role of line managers in driving and sustaining employee engagement. Engage for success is a not-for-profit, voluntary movement, raising awareness and understanding of engagement in the workplace. A key focus of the group is to undertake case study research to better understand the crucial role of line managers. The aim of the research is to explore engagement in practice, specifically, the role of line managers in the implementation of employee engagement. In collaboration with several public and private sector organisations, this research will study the relationship between line managers, HR, senior managers, trade unions, and its impact on employee engagement. The team recently submitted a bid for the BA Leverhulme Small Grants to further develop this research.
