Many of us spend a significant proportion of our time at work, but have you thought about how our identities are shaped at work, or what social dynamics go on to create a workplace culture? Over the years, management scholars have used the classic questionnaire to scientifically evaluate workplace sociology and behaviour.
This is now changing with new and exciting insights into Management Studies now opening up through the analysis of conversation discourse, media narratives and visual creativity. 'Our Workplace, Our Story' is a free event, welcoming the general public, academics and professionals to learn about workplace culture and raise awareness of Management Studies. The event will entail talks and an interactive activity at the Nottingham Contemporary where we will explore our own workplace identity and uncover some surprising behaviours that can change the way we work.
Management Studies is a large and complex subject that encompasses a wide variety of unexpected themes that you may not think would be important to businesses and organisations, issues such as 'trust', 'emotions', 'communication' and 'employee identity'. In this event we will expand upon the sociological issues within Management Studies and introduce the audience to the exciting world of work related behaviour with Professor Sam Warren and Professor Nick Llewellyn. Participants will have the opportunity to experience research methods first hand and perform self analysis though an interactive creative activity (use of Lego, Playdoh and drawing).
