Research themes & centres Organising for digital & social innovation We explore new ways of understanding organisational dynamics such as change, learning, leadership and identity work. Our work relates to workplaces as well as the economy and society more widely, and considers how to improve service quality in the private, voluntary and public sectors. Labour markets, skills & employability We draw on critical labour market studies, work sociology and work psychology to develop theory related to labour markets, skills and employability and inform evidence-based practice and policy. Regulation & restructuring of employment relations We examine themes related to work and labour within the global economy, such as new forms of labour and migration, as well as issues related to the employment relationship, worker rights, gender, dignity, health and well-being. Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER) SCER is the home of the ESRC-funded Improving management practices, work engagement, and workplace innovation for productivity and wellbeing, and Innovating Works.
