Our research

Our research sets the agenda in debates about human resource management, work and employment relations; ethics, sustainability and management, and information, technology and society.

This is part of a broader programme to advance studies of the role and effects of organisations, management and leadership and in contemporary society.

Underlying our contributions is an interdisciplinary research approach. Our department members are drawn from diverse backgrounds. This allows us to bring broad social sciences perspectives and the humanities and life sciences into our studies.

These interdisciplinary perspectives are crucial to reshaping management research and education in the 21st century, reflecting the need to bring fresh approaches to the demands of dealing with societal, economic and climate crises.

Members of the department participate in international research collaborations, including with colleagues in Australia, Brazil, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, New Zealand and France, amongst others.

Research areas

Our departmental research covers various topics in organisation, work and technology organised into four main areas:

  • Human resource management, work and employment relations
  • Ethics, sustainability and management
  • Information, technology and society

Human resource management, work and employment relations

Our research tackles the implications for managers and employees of different forms of work, changing ways of managing people in the workplace, and what this means for different groups, professions and organisations. We look to understand work within its context in organisations and a shifting society. The lived experiences of people at work and within organisations are central to our approach.

Ethics, sustainability and management

News of serious moral transgressions in the world of business and management, which have far-reaching economic, social and political repercussions, appears in the media with alarming regularity. The same intensity and urgency are also reflected in questions about the relationship between business, management and the natural environment. Environmental sustainability poses one of the most significant challenges in current attempts to rethink and re-imagine the role of society, organisations, and the practice of management.

The Department has a vibrant research environment and an internationally recognised research portfolio focused on ethics and sustainability.

Information, technology and society

A broad range of factors influence the development and uptake of technological innovations and how these shape organisational processes and social practices. Researchers in the Department aim to develop new accounts of these factors while attending to the effects of technologies in a diverse and global set of contexts.

Work within the department researches how changes in technology affect changes in work practices – as well as how changes in work interact with technologies.

Organisation, management and society

All kinds of organisations and their management ideas, values, structures, and practices influence our contemporary lives.

Cutting across all of the Department’s research is, therefore, a concern with the impacts of organisations and management on society, the origins of contemporary forms of organising and management, and the way various functional areas of management acquire their legitimacy.
