Additional funding for ESRC PrOPEL Hub collaboration on transforming workplace productivity 


Strathclyde Business School's Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER) and partners have been awarded £400,000 by UK Research and Innovation/ESRC to take forward additional work building upon the past two years of the ESRC 'PrOPEL Hub'. 

'PrOPEL' - or 'Productivity Outcomes of Workplace Practice, Engagement and Learning' - provides a Hub bringing together cutting-edge workplace research on employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity. It has developed a range of online and in-person tools and services helping researchers to maximise the impact of their research and knowledge exchange to inform improved management practice in the workplace.  

SCER at Strathclyde Business School will lead the ESRC PrOPEL Hub partnership, which includes colleagues from nine universities across all four nations of the UK. 

Principal Investigator Professor Colin Lindsay welcomed the opportunity to build upon PrOPEL Hub's impressive track record of engagement with business and policy stakeholders, which has seen more 3,000 business and policy stakeholders connect with researchers through more than 70 online and in-person events since 2020.
