Description

Celebrate Christmas with CROME in a discussion lead by Professor Katie Bailey (University of Sussex) on 'Meaningful Work: What do we know about it and how do we find it?'

Meaningful work is something that many employees want, and many employers aspire to provide. Katie's research has brought to light seven surprising features of meaningful work, and seven 'deadly sins' committed by employers that can erode a sense of meaningfulness.

Meaningfulness cannot be prescibed or mandated, as meaningfulness is something that we all find for ourselves in the work that we do, but organisations can create an ecosystem that enables employees to find meaningfulness for themselves.

Professor Bailey is a leading expert in research on meaningful work. Her research is published in the Sloan Management Review; she was was conferred a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and funded by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) to lead a research project on Purposeful Leadership.

She hosted a workshop on 'Meaningful work ecosystems' at the Meaning conference in Brighton in November 2016, guest-directed by Guardian journalist Paul Mason.

This event is hosted by the Centre for Research on Management and Employment (CROME) at the University of Brighton Business School. Last year's lecture was with Gareth Jones discussing his new book 'Why should anyone work here?' (Harvard Business Review Press).

All are welcome to join us for a mince pie and a lively discussion.
