The ESRC-funded PrOPEL Hub launched in early 2020 bringing together experts across nine Universities and the CIPD. We all share a common interest in understanding the role of workplace practice in tackling the UK’s productivity puzzle. Over the last two and half years, we have worked together to broaden and deepen our understanding of working lives and develop interventions to enhance workplace practice and employee engagement to improve productivity.

On the 15th and 16th November we will be running a two-day conference to share what we have learned and to identify next steps for the PrOPEL Hub. Join us on either or both days to:

  • Hear from leading PrOPEL Hub researchers and partners on the role of the workplace and workplace levers in driving engagement, wellbeing, innovation and productivity.
  • Explore different methodologies for engaging and influencing business, policy and academic stakeholders, including traditionally “hard to reach” groups.
  • Be part of forming a PrOPEL Hub manifesto with key priorities for continuing to drive forward the workplace productivity agenda.

Speakers include:

  • Prof Alan Felstead, Cardiff University
  • Prof Patricia Findlay, University of Strathclyde
  • Prof Monder Ram, Aston University
  • Prof Rebecca Riley, King’s College , London
  • And many other leading researchers..

As well as key policy stakeholders such as:

  • Gill Dix, Head of Workplace Policy, ACAS
