Research activities

Testing new methods & ideas

Through our own research projects, and participation in novel studies, we stay up to date with emerging ideas within the scientific community and contribute to a broader understanding of the relationships between health, wellbeing and performance. We are focusing on three research areas at this time; knowledge work as endurance activity, mass thriving in organisations, and human performance in motorsport.

Our three research areas

1. Knowledge work as an endurance activity

We are participating in novel studies to investigate patterns of work and rest in knowledge work. Applying a combination of self-report, behavioural and physiological measures, this research is designed to provide a better understanding of what factors are supporting sustainable high-performance in the workplace.

2. Mass thriving in organisations

To better understand organisational dynamics, we are conducting a multi-level study on what it takes to have a high functioning team where wellbeing, thriving and performance is a norm. This study will collect data from different parts of organisations, from top executives to middle managers and employees. The aim is to find out how leadership style affects employee experience and behaviour, and how this behaviour is moderated by organisational climate and personal attributes.

3. Human performance on track

In a ground-breaking project, we are studying the performance of the world’s best drivers, creating a unique dataset of physiological, psychological and neurological benchmarks. As there hasn’t been any published information comparing fitness variables of elite level drivers across various championships, we are trying to contribute to the field, and lead the way in understanding the demands of the sport so we can best support the drivers.
