The Centre for Work and Organisational Performance (CWOP)

In other research news, the Vice-Chancellor has recently signed off on a brand new research centre for the School of Business and Law, The Centre for Work and Organisational Performance (CWOP).

Professorial Research Fellow Professor Stephen Teo is the Centre Director, with group members including academic staff from the School of Arts and Humanities, School of Nursing and Midwifery, and the School of Medical and Health Sciences, who are researching in the similar research space.

One of ECU’s research focus areas is in “Business and Society”. The Centre for Work and Organisational Performance (CWOP) falls under this theme and it brings together a collective of multi-disciplinary research active academics and early career academics in the School of Business and Law.

These researchers have an on-going research agenda in various aspects of work (including human resource management and employee relations) and organisational studies (including organisational behaviour, leadership, and industrial/organisational psychology).

CPOW will provide a vehicle for this group of multi- disciplinary researchers to engage with industry, government and other institutions nationally and internationally.
