Join us at UWS Paisley Campus on Monday 16th January at 5pm for the Inaugural Lecture by Professor Stephen Gibb, of the School of Business and Creative Industries.
Most work organisations have been questioning their cultures for a variety of reasons, including providing fair and decent work, with the hope that revising Employer Value Propositions (EVPs) will help them attract and retain people in ever challenging and changing times. This is especially true for organisations in the social care sector. There is not only a sizeable workforce in the sector facing fair and decent work challenges, there is also the profound connection they have with and impact on the lives of many receiving care and their families. As well as questioning culture at the organisation level, and fair work deficits there, there are also potential questions about culture in context, at the sectoral and national levels, and possible deficits there too. At the sectoral level there is a new National Care Service (NCS) being implemented to advance integrated care. And culture issues also exist for social care around national governance systems as a whole, with the Scottish Government review of the National Performance Framework (NPF). O&HRD research is not only concerned with employer organisation cultures and fair work but should help address and impact culture and change at all these levels.
Professor Gibb is a SFHEA and Fellow of the CIPD. An inspiring teacher, PGR supervisor and researcher/writer on Organisation & Human Resource Development (O&HRD). He has made substantial contributions through teaching, texts, more than 50 peer reviewed articles, and supervision of several PhD students. Professor Gibb is a director of the UWS Business and Creative Industries (BCI) based Social Impact Leadership & Management (SIL&M) research group. SILM aims to enable colleagues to find common interests around how new generation leaders and managers can support social impacts including equality, empowerment and wellbeing.
