Research: Developing managers to manage sustainable employee engagement, health and wellbeing

Sponsored by the CIPD, IOSH and the Affinity Health at Work Research Consortium, this research reviewed all the evidence available about what affects the success of programmes to develop managers to manage in ways that improve employee engagement, health and wellbeing. It looked at both academic and practitioner literature and gathered data from experts, practitioners and organisations in order to provide a unifying framework bringing all the evidence together. It has resulted in the creation of a set of checklists that highlight the range of factors that can enhance or reduce effectiveness of such programmes, with the aim of helping organisations in implementing these programmes successfully.

To develop this researech further, we looking for volunteers who are responsible or partly responsible for running a management development programme to complete a short survey. We are keen to understand your experience of the factors described in the checklists to further inform this research. We expect the survey questionnaire to take no longer than 15 minutes to complete and respondents will be the first to learn about this exciting research, plus they will be in with the chance of winning a £100 John Lewis Gift Voucher or a free place at one of our Research Consortium master-classes.
