Welcome to the Centre for People and Performance


The Centre for People and Performance conducts independent research in partnership with a wide range of organisations, to explore the challenges of managing, leading and developing people to create sustainable high-performing organisations.

Our experts deliver tailor-made solutions to organisational and sector-specific challenges and issues for a range of private and public sector clients and policy-makers.


We can design and deliver bespoke solutions to people challenges within your business.  Offering a full range of investigatory techniques, either on a standalone or combined basis, we can conduct interview programmes, hold focus groups and undertake surveys.  Our analysis will provide you with evidence-based reports and recommendations in a format you can use to support the enhancement of organisational practice within your business, without recommending costly and unnecessary solution tools.


We offer one-to-one or small group coaching in knowledge-based areas.  We can also provide career and life-coaching to individuals at all levels of an organisation.  Contact us for more information and to discuss your specific requirements.

Continuing Professional Development

Human Resources practitioners and other managers can continue their professional development by attending one of our events.


An important part of our mission is to educate and support the next generation of researchers through the provision of high-quality doctoral training in this field. Please visit the Graduate School website for more information about our doctoral programme.
