News & Upcoming events


  • Future of Work Research Seminar welcomes new Roffey Park PhD students.

  • Dr Emma Russell discusses digital connectivity on BBC World Service

    In considering whether we are all now drowning in constant digital connectivity, on the BBC's World Business Report (13.12.19), Emma Russell discusses the strategies people are using to manage their work email. Emma reports on her own research, which has recently found that in dealing with our work email we are concerned about meeting any of four key goals: (i) to show concern for others, (ii) to feel in control, (iii) to protect or boost or well-being, (iv) to achieve our work goals. Often the strategies we use will help to fulfil one goal at the expense of another. Find out why by listening here.

Upcoming events: 

19 February, Jub 118, 12:00 - 14:00.
The School for Organizers
Speaker: Martin Parker, University of Bristol
Joint by Department of Management HRM & OB Group
