Centre for Work Organisation and Wellbeing (WOW)

Griffith University

The Centre is an interdisciplinary research group incorporating scholars from human resource management, industrial relations, organisational behaviour, psychology, sociology and other fields interested in the study of work. WOW members seek to understand the changing world of work in an era of significant social, economic and technological change. Centre researchers explore how the imperative for efficiency, quality and high performance can be configured so that good pay, dignity, wellbeing and social justice are achieved and maintained. The Centre’s researchers continue to bridge the gap between organisational behaviour, wellbeing and workplace research, and practice and policy at local, national and international levels. Centre members’ research encompasses seven broad themes: -- Collectivism at work -- Health and safety at work -- Emotions at work -- Wellbeing at work -- Voice at work -- Equity, gender and diversity in employment -- Managing human capital at work.
