Does 'the real living wage' really matter? (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2019-09-25T18:00:00+01:002019-09-25T20:00:00+01:00

As of 2017, 5.5 million (21% of the UK employees) were earning less than the living wage. The UK initiative on advocating the real living wage among employers via the Living Wage Foundation accreditation programme appears to be a successful national move with the potential to generate impact across the globe going forward. Paying employees a wage sufficient to live a decent life is aligned with achieving the broad sustainable development goals including but not limited to: SDG 8. Decent work and economic growth; SDG 10. Reduced inequalities; SDG1. No poverty; and SDG3. Good health and wellbeing. While it is perceived as ‘the right thing to do’, paying employees the real living wage also provides a variety of benefits to the investors and their clients, employers, employees and society in general. Exploring this further we present “an investment case on living wage accreditation” highlighting the current situation of the investors’ perceptions of living wage accreditation and the financial significance of paying employees the real living wage.

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories. For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops. Sometimes they have haircuts, sometimes they listen, more often than not they talk. Barber shops are confession boxes, political platforms, preacher-pulpits and football pitches... places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world. Fuel has produced Inua Ellams’ work for theatre since his debut play nine years ago. Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful play, set in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London. The play invites the audience into a uniquely masculine environment where the banter may be barbed, but the truth always telling. The barbers of these tales are sages, role models and father figures, they are the glue that keeps men together. ★★★★★ "Joyous piece of theatre" Independent ★★★★★ The Stage

Professorial Inaugural Lecture, Prof. Paurav Shukla - Beyond Bling - Luxury Consumption Across Time & Cultures (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2019-11-27T18:00:00+00:002019-11-27T20:00:00+00:00

Consuming for status and showing-off of luxury goods has become a defining element of new consumerist societies. However, status directed consumption is not a recent phenomenon. From the extravagance and excesses of ruling elites in earlier societies to the new business maharajas, status directed consumption has been well observed and documented. However, with the increase in the standard of living beyond wealthy elite, status consumption has percolated through to the masses who are attempting to adopt profligate lifestyles globally. For example, brands such as LVMH, Gucci and so on have seen phenomenal growth in the last two-three decades. This inaugural professoriate lecture attempts a brief review of the historical trends relating to status consumption and presents several studies conducted over the last decade focusing on status consumption in the developed and emerging markets. They offer a novel account of surprising similarities and differences in motives for luxury consumption worldwide.

Vice Chancellors Compensation and University Performance (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2019-12-11T18:00:00+00:002019-12-11T20:00:00+00:00

Using a sample of UK universities from 2001 to 2016, we find that high remuneration packages contribute to higher university performance. Particularly, a one standard deviation increase in Vice Chancellor (VC) pay is associated with an increase of 2.21% in university performance index. Also, Knighthood by Her Majesty the Queen or other prestigious rewards increase institution performance. In addition, we document that while VCs with general human capital receive higher pay, they decrease the performance of their universities. Our results suggest that the positive impact of pay on performance concentrates among universities with external promoted VCs with managerial discretion. The positive effect of VC general managerial skills on compensation is more pronounced for universities with young VCs with foreign experience. The results are also confirmed after controlling for self-selection bias and other various tests.

Bias in expert decision making (18:00)

18:00 - 20:00
2020-01-29T18:00:00+00:002020-01-29T20:00:00+00:00
In many domains experts are called upon to provide research and analysis. Their expert judgment and decision making is often regarded as error-free, or at least as being objective and impartial. Drawing from the field of criminal justice, I will present research and evidence from real casework that many different types of biases affect experts, including fingerprinting and DNA forensic laboratory decision making. Forensic evaluations are highly impacted (and can be distorted) by irrelevant contextual information, reference materials, base rate, organisational factors, or even by the context in which information is presented or obtained. I will articulate the psychological mechanisms by which experts make biased and erroneous decisions and describe how this research can assist in identifying such weaknesses and in providing practical ways to mitigate them..

Speaker information
Dr Itiel Dror is a cognitive neuroscientist who received his PhD from Harvard in the area of cognitive factors in human expert performance. His academic work relates to theoretical issues underlying human performance and cognition. Dr Dror's insights and understanding of the human brain and cognitive architecture underpin his applied work where he translates it into practical and tangible ways to improve human performance in real world domains. This applied research has primarily focused on enhanced cognition through training, decision-making, and use of technology. He has worked with experts in various domains and with a wide range of organisations in a numerous of countries. His research has demonstrated that specific components in the cognitive underpinning of expertise entail vulnerabilities. In the forensic domain Dr. Dror has led to the understanding that the perceptions and cognitions of the human examiner play a key role in forensic work. Building on these insights he developed unique ways to combat these weaknesses and improve expert performance. Dr. Dror has published over 120 peer-reviewed articles specifically looking at cognitive factors that mediate human expert performance. More information is available at: www.cci-hq.com.
