INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH INTO ORGANISATIONS, WORK AND EMPLOYMENT (IROWE)
The URTU Learning project works with many organisations and is particularly pleased with its ongoing relationship with the University of Central Lancashire’s Institute for Research into Organisations, Work and Employment (iROWE). This relationship can encourage the involvement and sharing of high quality academic research through working closely with trade unions, employers, and government to inform the development of effective workplace practice and employment policy. Some of their research areas which may be of interest to you are listed below, but there are also many more.
- Managing workplace conflict
- Learning and development
- Trade unions
- Employment relations and performance
This type of current research activity can really help you in workplace discussions to engage your employer in progressive policies and practices. You can find out more about their recent work and activities in these newsletters.
