Description

Human Resources, Work and Employment Research - WORKSHOP 1


The Changing Terrain of Employability & Careers

This sessions will consist of 5 mini sessions which are noted below:

1. Mentoring of women in male dominated jobs

Professor Sue Durbin will present her research on mentoring for women professionals in male dominated jobs and her involvement in the recently launched Alta mentoring scheme, for female professionals in the aviation and aerospace industry.

2. Smarter Working in the 21st Century – new ways of working, new developments, new opportunities

Work Wise UK and UWE, Bristol Business School have formed a collaboration to advance the adoption and implementation of smarter working practices in the UK which will deliver a number of initiatives during the next few years. The first of these is to enhance and develop the Work Wise UK Standard which was originally launched in 2007. Harriet will outline the work towards the latest version of the standard, which involves an extensive refresh during the next four months to include new elements reflecting modern workstyle/workplace processes e.g. workspace environment, mental health intervention (coaching programs), the gig economy and artificial intelligence.

3. Modern prison labour

A study into modern prison labour and the involvement of private companies. The study found that prisoners were in fact impressed by what they saw as their own exploitation and explained that 'they wish they'd thought of it first'. The study concludes that the rehabilitative potential of private prison labour is, in the most part, missing.

4. Adaptation of newly hired employees

Recent research has suggested that organizations are not performing well in capturing the value of newly hired employees (i.e. newcomers). Jenny’s study is to investigate what drives newcomers to initiate changes over work environment, and how to facilitate their adjustment after organizational entry.

5. Graduate employment trajectories in a precarious labour market

Drawing on data from the Paired Peers study, which has been following a cohort of young adults through their degree and into employment, we highlight the strategies utilised by new graduates as the seek to secure graduate jobs, including sectoral and class differences/outcomes.
