The "Well-being at Work" Chair is financed for a period of 3 years by the Caisse d’Epargne Provence-Alpes-Corse (CEPAC), which sought a high-quality partnership with KEDGE to expand on the topic of well-being at work through research and practice.
From the outset, it was apparent that CAPAC and KEDGE share strong values which place the partnership on a common path.
Collectiveness & Sharing
The Chair's aim is twofold
- Reflect in order to create a common core of knowledge enabling the rapid and open spread of practices to improve the well-being of their staff, in teaching, research and in organisations and companies;
- Become a place for innovation and proposals in the field of managerial practice.
The chair's actions surround 3 areas
Research themes related to its aims:
- New managerial practices: post-modernism, vulnerabilities, new collectives etc.
- Health and quality of life at work.
Creation of a Think Tank bringing together companies and bodies wishing to collaborate on the theme of well-being at work.
- In autumn 2016 workshops will be led on the Luminy campus, in collaboration with the think tank Fabrique Spinoza, within the framework of the ELAB project (Elaborons Aujourd'hui l'Entreprise de Demain - Let's develop tomorrow's company today). The theme will be the effect of well-being at work on the company's overall performance, with a focus on health at work;
Teaching innovation in the programmes offered by KEDGE.
- In the 1st semester of 2016, a group of KEDGE students took part in analysis and research on the staff annual appraisal process in companies. The study focused on enhancing collaborative practices, which are essential to company performance, but are rarely assessed within the framework of appraisals that often concentrate on individual performance.
- A major survey will be launched in 2017 with the KEDGE student and graduate community surrounding "Inventing tomorrow's work" in order to analyse and understand the vision younger generations have of work and well-being in their future professional environment.
A seminar to report on the chair's work is planned for June 2017.
