Engaging with Business

By harnessing the power of research and academic insight, we are leading the debate on a range of global issues. Read our latest article by Professor Steve Young, in which he talks about whether corporate talk of employees as an asset is matched by their actions. This is demonstrated by our partnership on our new Fitch scholarships and placements. Discover how we are engaging with organisations by visiting For Business.
