We are only able to bring this hub to you because of the kind support of our sponsors through the Affinity Health at Work Research Consortium. Since 2006, the Research Consortium has enabled us to undertake innovative and practical research relating to workplace health, wellbeing and engagement. It allows us to work with and be supported by a group of forward-thinking organisations, including a number of 'institutional sponsors' (such as CIPD, HSE, Acas, IOSH) plus a variety of employer organisations drawn from a range of sectors (such as accountancy, insurance, energy, healthcare, transport, central government, finance and education).
The Consortium is a collaboration between researchers and members, who contribute by taking part in research projects and helping shape outputs, as well as financing the research work; in return, they receive a range of membership benefits. Click here to find out more about the .
In order to keep the hub alive and to keep the content free to access and up to date, we need more sponsors. If you or your organisation are interested in joining our Consortium and sponsoring the hub, or if you would like to sponsor a particular topic within the hub, please do contact us.
