What can employers do to keep workers happy, healthy and effective even in the most challenging of circumstances?

The last year has brought profound change to working lives and thrown up significant challenge and uncertainty for employees, with many working in isolation and juggling caring responsibilities. Maintaining employee engagement and well-being has never been in sharper focus as organisations seek to ensure their existing structures meet shifting employee needs.

At our upcoming International Research Seminar, Jamie Gruman, Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Guelph in Canada will share the latest insight from management and psychology research on structuring workplaces to build a thriving work culture and optimise employee engagement and wellbeing. The session will be chaired by Dr Martin McCracken, Research Director at Ulster University.
