This Research Insight is the result of ongoing collaboration between the CIPD, Investors in People and the Health and Safety Executive on research into management competencies for preventing and reducing stress at work.
The report outlines the findings of the research so far and describes phase 3, a learning intervention for managers in 17 organisations. It looks at why manager behaviour is important, and reflects on barriers and facilitators of positive management behaviour and behaviour change.
Case studies from the British Geological Survey, the Probation Service, and an NHS trust are included.
The report of phase 4 of the research has now been published, including further case studies and looking at how organisations are implementing the findings.
