Research carried out within organizations explores how leadership and HR management influences attitudes, behaviours and performance, and examines ways in which organizational 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. We are not committed to one methodological stance or another- some members deploy quantitative research designs, others adopt qualitative or practice-based perspectives- our goals are research excellence and research relevance. We believe that excellence and relevance are mutually compatible goals. Our record of accomplishment in attracting and delivering funded projects bears testament to our success in identifying and addressing crucial challenges facing society, business and those in the workplace.
