The Centre for Transformative Work Design is a Research Centre where passionate organisational psychology researchers and professionals are working together to transform work under the directorship of Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow, Professor Sharon K. Parker.


We conduct high quality, independent and innovative research to understand the role of work design in generating healthy and productive work.


We are committed to fostering the design of good work across all industries.


Good work design creates healthier lives, unlocks human capability and supports a skilled economy.


The Centre has six major research streams, focused on:

  • Future work challenges (stream 1)

  • How work design transforms individuals (stream 2)

  • How work design transforms teams and organisations (stream 3)

  • The antecedents of good work design (stream 4)

  • Organisations and the mature workforce (stream 5)

  • Healthy Work (stream 6).


A crucial element of the Centre is our outreach Collaboratory, where we engage with workers, employers, managers, policy-makers and the community.


Amongst other activities, we produce resources about work design for educators, researchers, managers, workers, and the community.
