How can we ensure the future of our planet and our society? How can organisations contribute to the wellbeing and resilience of their employees? How can we maintain standards of healthcare as pressures increase?

Our research in this area addresses sustainability challenges facing organisations, healthcare providers, their employees and wider society. We bring together world-class work across human resource management; strategy; international business; finance; operations management and supply chain management.
