Research and PhD study in Organisation, Work and Technology

Our research sets the agenda in debates about human resource management and employment relations; ethics, sustainability and management; and information, technology and society. This is all part of a wider programme to advance studies of the role and effects of management and organisations in contemporary society.

Research in the department and our PhD programme contributes to a range of debates in the field of organisation studies. Underlying our contributions is an interdisciplinary approach to research and members of the department are drawn from diverse backgrounds (including human geography, human resource management, organisation studies, philosophy and sociology). This allows our research to bring humanities and wider social science perspectives into management research; this being widely acknowledged as a crucial part of reshaping management research and education in the twenty-first century.
