Presented in collaboration with The PrOPEL Hub
The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the extent to which society depends upon essential workers, with health and social care workers in particular playing a critical role in pulling us through the crisis.
Last year people took to the streets to applaud their heroic work. But what happens now that the clapping has stopped? What is the aftermath of COVID-19 on the health and social care workers who have spent the last year working under extreme pressure in sometimes dangerous conditions? What lessons from before and during the pandemic should we take forward into the post-covid era?
Across June and July, the PrOPEL Hub, in partnership with HPMA, will be running a series of free events drawing on evidence gathered before and during the pandemic to explore the implications of Covid-19 for employment relations in the Health & Social Care sector across the 4 UK nations.
Non-profit organisations (NPOs) are established to fulfil a collective, public or social need and – as the name suggests – are ‘not for profit’! However, NPOs now face growing competition for funding and resources to survive. To enhance their organisational value, performance and ultimately competitiveness, they are increasingly looking to progressive management strategies as a solution.
What benefits and limitations does such an approach have within an NPO? How does the requirement that NPOs be competitive and sustainable impact their ability to fulfil their original social mission?
At this webinar, Dr Martin McCracken, Research Director at Ulster University Business School and Dr Denise Currie, Senior Lecturer at Queens University Belfast, will explore what the evidence tells us and consider implications for policymakers and practitioners.
This event will be held on Tuesday 8th June starting at 3pm and will last for approximately 90 minutes and will include the opportunity to ask questions. Delegates can submit questions in advance or add them during the webinar. If you would like to submit a question in advance, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Joining instructions will be sent out 24 hours prior to the event.
