Contemporary Research on Organisations, Work and Employment (CROWE)

CROWE is a research group within the Department of Human Resource Management at Leicester Business School, De Montfort University. It aims to contribute to debates on contemporary work and employment, through research of recognised international quality.

Our research focuses on how managers, workers, trade unions and policy makers interpret and attempt to shape the nature of work and employment.

It covers a wide range of organisational contexts in the private, public and third sectors, both in the UK and overseas, and is based on an in-depth understanding of these different contexts.

Our research aims to be critical, and theoretically informed, while being of relevance to the full range of stakeholders involved in the regulation of work, employment and organisations.
