In the OB and HRM department we have a shared understanding of the importance of sustainable and ethical behaviour in the workplace. If you study with us, you will share the classroom with leading researchers from our Work, Employment and Organisation (WEORG) research community, internationally renowned Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL) and the Africa Research Group.
Our research focuses on areas including; leadership, organisational change, knowledge management, the impact of digitalisation (big data, E-HRM practices, health informatics, remote working), crisis management, inter and intra-organisational collaboration, cross-cultural management, sustainable and alternative organisations (cooperatives, unions), work practices (flexible work, precarious work, part-time work, unemployment), careers and professions, service work, migrant workers, discrimination, work-life balance, and occupational health, safety and well-being.
We are passionate about bringing our research into the classroom and creating a supportive learning environment for our students. Our teaching is academically rigorous, interactive, and presents opportunities for you to engage with business. You will acquire knowledge of OB and HRM practices in an international context enabling you to create a fairer, more sustainable, and resilient workplace when you graduate. You will also develop skills highly valued by employers and even achieve professional accreditations*.
