Business School offers research-led solutions to global challenges in Exeter Expertise blog

The University of Exeter Business School has launched a new blog offering research-led practical advice and know-how that will help businesses and organisations tackle the world’s greatest challenges.

Exeter Expertise will feature a mixture of blogs, podcasts and videos that will provide the latest thinking in the Business School’s three core areas of expertise: environmental intelligence, technological transformation and responsible leadership.

Academics from the Business School will offer original research-led insights that promise to challenge the status quo in the way that we think about and conduct business.

Among the inaugural blog posts are podcasts on managing workplace bullying, understanding what makes people commit white collar crime as well as blogs looking at different policy approaches and individual responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Academics such as the environmental economist Professor Ian Bateman and circular economy experts Professor Peter Hopkinson and Professor Fiona Charnley all provide a window into their areas of knowledge while showing how their research can help individuals, businesses and organisations take action that will create a better, more sustainable world.

There are also videos and podcasts looking in depth at issues such as virtual networking, the digital transformation of society as well as posts that focus on innovations with the potential to improve society.

In his introductory blog post for Exeter Expertise, the Dean of the Business School Professor David Bruce Allen underlines that sustaining the resources that make business possible, while addressing the environmental and climate emergency, should be the number one priority for business.

“Our job, as business leaders, is to work alongside government and civil society organisations to figure out how we can create wealth and well-being for all and, yes, also save our planet,” explains Professor Allen.

“It’s daunting, and the aim sounds grandiose, but our success at creating wealth is also responsible for our environmental, health and social challenges.

“There are no easy fixes. I am certain, however, that together we can do better.”

The blog will be updated regularly with more unique insights from the Business School’s community of academics.
