The WWK Research Group aligns its research activities with a focus on psychological well-being for individuals at work. This is a key organisational, societal, economic and government priority both within and beyond the UK. Members of the WWK team are mostly chartered and/or registered psychologists, often combining academic careers with professional practice.
WWK is regularly involved in applied organisational-based research, and is interested in developing collaborative relationships with industry, organisations, students and other academics.
WWK is primarily interested in investigating antecedents to well-being in the areas of leadership, the application of new communication technology, work-life balance, counselling/therapeutic interventions, and positive and applied social psychology. Our research is focused on building theory within these domains, but with a firm practitioner thread that allows contributions towards policy initiatives and recommendations to individuals, organisations and society on how to improve occupational health and well-being at work.
Members of the group are involved in the Occupational and Business Psychology MSc and Leadership and Management in Healthcare MSc teaching teams, and often integrate student research with our own activities - applying academic rigour, professional practice and knowledge development under a well-being at work agenda.
