Who are we?
The PrOPEL Hub (Productivity Outcomes of workplace Practice, Engagement & Learning) is a major initiative designed to support improvements in productivity through enhanced workplace practice and employee engagement. The Hub brings together leading researchers from 8 UK universities alongside the CIPD, to develop practical tips and tools to help businesses take advantage of the latest insights and expertise. Funded by the Economic & Social Research Council, we focus on supporting the development of high quality, inclusive and engaging workplaces that help tackle the UK’s productivity puzzle.
What do we do?
Events. We run a series of events exploring links between management practice, employee engagement and productivity. These range from our larger Masterclass events targeted at a senior business audience, our International Research Seminars aimed at an academic audience, to our smaller more engaged workshops and hacks which allow organisations to problem solve within their own specific business context
Research. All of our activity is underpinned by a robust evidence-base. We have 5 major on-going research projects funded by the ESRC which explore links between workplace practice and productivity through a range of different perspectives. You can learn more about these here.
Webcontent. Our website shares findings from our own and other key stakeholder’s research in a format that can be usefully and practically applied by businesses. We offer blogs, podcasts, videos and ‘How To’ toolkits.
