Our research themes span employment studies, HRM, organisational behaviour and organisation studies. Find out more in Research Themes & Centres.
We lead collaborative research networks, such as:
- the PrOPEL Hub (Productivity Outcomes of workplace Practice, Engagement and Learning)
- the Work, Land and Globalisation network
Our research is impactful – we work with governments, private, public and third sector employers, trade unions and other civil society organisations.
- Our Department houses the Scottish Centre for Employment Research, one of the UK’s leading contributors on workplace innovation.
Our research aims to be global, participatory and transformative
- See for example our Centre for the Political Economy of Labour
We organise academic/practitioner conferences and colloquia; e.g. for the British Academy of Management, the International Labour Process Conference, EGOS, the European Group of Public Administration & the Chartered Institute for Personnel & Development.
