About Us

Behaviour in Organisations Research Group (BORG) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners for collaboration and knowledge sharing in all aspects of organizational behaviour. This group stimulates research across a range of areas that include leadership, workplace behaviours, bullying and harassment, and seeks to make pragmatic recommendations in order to eradicate bullying.

BORG advocates for a deeper understanding of the impact of organizational culture and practices on health and well-being as well as person centred and empowering leadership practices in organizations.

Through this, we promote well-being, dignity and respect for all.
