The Centre for People, Organisation and Work (CPOW) brings together social science research expertise.
CPOW’s research focuses on the leadership and management of people in the workplace, as well as understanding the wider economic, political, technological, social and cultural environment in which organisations operate. A major goal is to formulate positive policies and programs for business, government, and community.
Researchers explore issues such as diversity, skills development, human resource management and how to achieve effective results that are related to financial, operational and organisational sustainability, employee commitment, as well as economic and employee wellbeing.
In undertaking our research, we acknowledge that economic and social divisions are defining features of the world we live in. Our research focuses on addressing economic inequalities and fragmentation, social questions around gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age and locality, to enhance working lives and advance positive social change.
