The Institute of Work Psychology, University of Sheffield, is holding its
biennial International Conference in Sheffield, UK, titled ‘Work, Wellbeing
and Performance: Thriving in times of uncertainty’, on the 26th-28th June

2010 each of which attracted over 200 delegates from 36 different countries.

The conference will feature three internationally recognised keynote
speakers – Professor Talya Bauer, School of Business Administration,
Portland State University; Professor Gilad Chen, Robert H. Smith School of
Business, The University of Maryland; and Professor Sharon Parker, UWA

A full scholarly programme will involve paper presentations and interactive
sessions. A series of pre-conference workshops, training courses in
statistical methods and a Postgraduate and Early Career Scholar event are
