Strategy, aims and objectives

Below we describe our strategy, aims and objectives and our structure

 

Strategy

We are a new organisation and so in the process of developing our long term strategy to meet our aims and objectives. Lead by our stakeholder lead, Prof Jo Silvester, we are having conversations with internal and external stakeholders that will be used to inform our long-term strategic direction. 


In the short-term, we have developed our strategy of rapid insights with a small number of important topics in which work psychology has significant knowledge and expertise. These topics have emerged from the SARS-Covid19 pandemic. They identify key issues that have emerged from this emergency and which will detrimentally impact on the future capability and sustainability of Europe.

Aims and objectives

  1. Inform, guide and influence policy in Europe regarding people, work and organizations through policy materials directed at senior policy advisors. 

  2. Translate evidence-based Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) insights into usable policy resources suitable for those in senior advisor roles. 

  3. Produce materials based on WOP - ideas, analysis, evidence-based advice, and policy resources. 

  4. Become a ‘go to’ source for policy advice on the people, work and organisations. 

  5. Act as a repository for WOP perspectives on policy positions related to people, work and organization.

Structure

EAWOP’s Impact Incubator is structured to reflect the expertise and interest of Work and Organisational Psychology in Europe.  We draw upon the expertise of a wide array of contributors, from both research and practice, through EAWOP’s Small Group Meetings (SGM).

 

Each topic is led by a SGM organiser, working with these groups to draw on the latest research and state of the art evidence based thinking. These groups are supported to develop events, materials and resources that are focused on informing and engaging policy makers.
