Innovation at work: Psychological well-being, processes and outcomes
The International Collaborative Research Network (ICRN) will initially run for a 24-month period and will investigate creativity and innovation in the workplace and their effects upon performance, human resource management policies, and psychological well-being across three countries in the EU – the UK, the Netherlands, and Spain. Collaborating groups will be based at Maastricht University and the University of Valencia. This Centre has been fully-funded by the Leverhulme Trust and will examine both the positive and negative causes, effects, and outcomes of workplace innovation attempts. A particular emphasis of this Centre will be to further our understanding of the relations between creativity and innovation in job roles and different aspects of psychological well-being for employees, and the way in which these processes can best be managed in order to improve workgroup and organizational performance outcomes.
