Research values

Our research addresses the challenges facing society, ensuring that it is transformative, collaborative and responsible. 


Our research makes a positive contribution to management practices, policy, and society, often in conjunction with the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

It informs, influences and leads to positive changes in policies and practices in business and management, at local, national and international levels. Topics include:

  • social and responsible accounting 
  • banking, and financial innovation 
  • transforming the lives of patients 
  • employment and new working patterns  
  • development and labour economics  



We take an innovative and collaborative approach to our research in cross-disciplinary projects and partnerships with national and international scholars, research centres and doctoral training programmes, as well as through various funding institutions. Project areas include:

  • interdisciplinary research in consumer demographics, incorporating computing science and geospatial sciences 
  • psychology, behavioural economics and decision sciences 
  • healthcare and medicine 
  • organisational learning and internationalisation 



Our research tackles current and emerging social and environmental issues facing business and management at a national and international level. For example, responsible management issues are central to the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, where research has examined human rights and labour exploitation, sustainable finance and supply chains, as well as corporate responsibility and governance.

Responsible management research takes place across our subject areas and in our centres and institutes and includes:  

  • development issues in China and Africa 
  • workplace health and safety 
  • employee well-being 
  • sustainable supply chain networks and logistics 
  • sustainability in marketing 
  • governance and innovation in healthcare  


My work examines how working conditions can be improved to promote mental health and wellbeing at work and drive organisational and societal sustainability.
