Research InterestTop

Health & Safety at Work: integrating changing environmental and organizational imperatives in order to change management practices in a move towards employee health within the meaning of WHO. Health is not the absence of disease but a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. The new forms of organization strongly impact team management. Management through sense-making offers constructive paths for managers oriented by missions, goals to be achieved and the challenges of change. There is a move from traditional leadership to a more spiritual leadership.

Diversity and equal opportunities: the aim is to promote diversity in companies, to inform, encourage and develop this approach with various partners, taking over from associations and unions. Beyond our republican values, our work aims to develop practices that are virtuous and effective in socio-economic terms.

Human resources management is facing new challenges to change the social and psychological contract between employees and their company (changing expectations of customers, for example in recruitment, social responsibility, changing activities and the balance between economic and social performance).
