Out of sight, out of mind? Managing occupational safety and health for distributed or remote workers

Funded by IOSH and conducted in collaboration with the University of East Anglia, this project explored how managers and safety and health practitioners can best support the safety and health of distributed or remote workers – those who spend at least some of their work time working away from a main office or location. It generated a toolkit of materials designed to help practitioners and line managers understand the challenges and develop the relevant behavioural approaches.

Developing managers to manage sustainable employee engagement, health and wellbeing

This project reviewed all the available literature about what affects the success of programmes to develop managers to manage in ways that improve employee engagement, health and wellbeing. It resulted in the creation of a set of checklists that highlight the range of factors that can enhance or reduce effectiveness of such programmes, together with a maturity model and other materials, with the aim of helping organisations in implementing programmes successfully.

- The checklists and guidance developed, together with other materials and the report on the underlying research can be downloaded at: http://www.cipd.co.uk/hr-resources/research/developing-managers.aspx
