Working Well: a blog by the Institute of Work Psychology
Our research helps us to understand the world around us, generating insight and solutions to real-world problems.
The Institute of Work Psychology conducts research that helps us to understand the world around us, generating insight and solutions to real-world problems. It is organised into five themes:
- Work and Wellbeing
- Leadership and Teamworking
- Creativity, Innovation and Effectiveness
- Understanding Organisations
- Learning, Education and Development
In this blog, we present information and insights based on our research into these areas. The posts are written by IWP members, both staff and PhD students, and also by our collaborating partners. Views expressed are our own and we hope our blogs will be of interest to academics, practitioners, and policy makers.
