The IWP Conference 2010: Work, Well-Being and Performance: New Perspectives for the Modern Workplace, sponsored by Creativesheffield and Business Advantage, is being held from 28 June to 1 July at the St. Paul’s Hotel, Sheffield City Centre. It is hosted by the Institute of Work Psychology, University of Sheffield, a distinctive community of researchers focused on work psychology and related areas, such as organisational behaviour and HR management. This conference follows our successful 2008 event, which attracted over 250 delegates from 36 countries. Once again this conference has been publicised worldwide to much interest and enthusiasm from academics and practitioners across a range of disciplines. We anticipate 200 – 300 delegates for whom this will be a major showcase for their research and a unique networking opportunity.
Three internationally recognised keynote speakers are confirmed: Gary Johns, Concordia University Canada; Ann Marie Ryan, Michigan State University, USA; and Arnold Bakker, Erasmus University, Netherlands. Also, we will also have a keynote from Rear Admiral Philip Willcocks, Royal Navy.
Ten half-day workshops will be delivered on Tuesday 29 June at venues in St Paul’s Hotel, the Novotel, and the University of Sheffield. Topics range from workplace coaching, selecting a positive workforce, organisational stress interventions, diversity, work-life balance, leadership, and statistics. These workshops will marry academic theory and reliable work place practices. The statistics courses include half-day session on Tuesday 29 June on multi-level modelling followed by another half-day session on team-level statistics by Jeremy Dawson. On Friday 2 July there will be an all-day session on structural equation modelling using Mplus. There will also be a full programme of papers and a poster session.
