Our research activities reflect the variety of expertise and knowledge held at WEORG – the research community hosted within the OB/HRM Department. They are informed by our shared mission to improve work and employment policies and practices by investigating society’s ‘grand challenges’.

The department also hosts the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL), an internationally renowned research centre dedicated to improving and innovating healthcare management and leadership, and the Africa Research Group, an international and interdisciplinary community of scholars interested in furthering the understanding of the management, organisational, socio-economic, investment, innovation and entrepreneurial issues relevant to African countries.

WEORG members value collaboration and interdisciplinarity, and engage with multiple stakeholders inside the Business School as well as outside to:

  • co-produce knowledge and co-develop impactful research
  • deliver world-class teaching and learning opportunities
  • provide expert advice and co-develop tailored solutions


WEORG’s expertise and research align with four strategic priorities:

  • Organising for resilience and sustainability
  • Work and employment in a changing social and economic landscape
  • Organising for health, safety and wellbeing
  • Organising across borders and space

Mihaela Kelemen, Professor of Business and Society, talks about the interdisciplinary methods of research at the Business School.



Our ambition is to co-produce impactful research through collaboration with diverse stakeholders. We want to improve the world of work and employment for everyone: we want to make it better, fairer and more resilient - now and for the future.
Simona Spedale,
Division Research Director
