Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) drive economic growth, but very little research exists regarding owner managers’ wellbeing and links to innovation. Indeed, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Wellbeing Economics and Office for National Statistics (ONS) advocate more research into wellbeing evidence and improved lives.
This event is a half-day interactive seminar that discusses the wellbeing features (workplace, leisure) owner managers’ should prioritise to benefit innovation. The seminar disseminates preliminary findings from the recently completed British Academy funded project ‘Entrepreneurship, Wellbeing and Innovation’ (Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Strathclyde). In addition, guest speakers will talk about their previous wellbeing research funded by different Research Councils. It offers short presentations by academics, question and answer sessions and networking opportunities.
