Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management

The Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management group draws on a diverse range of theoretical and methodological approaches to research, teach and engage with external partners on the understanding of and effective management of behaviour and people in organisations. Our aim is to facilitate a fairer and resilient workplace that sustains careers and wellbeing alongside high levels of performance. 

We are a diverse and dynamic group of academics who conduct world leading and impactful research in a variety of areas such as leadership and followership, workplace social networks, diversity and inequality, the changing nature of work, personality and personality dynamics, social comparison and interpersonal behaviour, and health and wellbeing. Many of our faculty our members of the Exeter Centre for Leadership and/or Centre for Social Networks. Our research is published in high quality journals and aims to have impact on practice. Members of the group work closely with a range of organizations, having demonstrable impact on issues such as gender diversity of public and private sector boards and innovation in local SMEs.   

We draw on a range of innovative teaching methods, including case studies, role play and practice-based learning to develop future managers and leaders. Our Human Resource Management (HRM) Masters programme has been fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). We also run an MSc in International HRM and support an undergraduate Leadership Pathway while contributing specialist modules in a wide range of HRM, OB and Leadership subjects for the school’s portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
