Background: As most academic research does not address barriers to real world implementation, the evidence generated is often not seen as useful or relevant to practitioners and policymakers, and thus has little overall public health impact (Kessler & Glasgow, 2011).
Aim: The aim of this paper is to promote research co-production as a means of facilitating evidence-based management in the field of employee health and wellbeing and illustrate processes and outcomes of academic-practitioner collaboration.
Approach: This will be a joint presentation articulating academic and practitioner perspectives on research collaboration and goals regarding research co-production.
Key messages: Academic/industry partnerships are critical to innovation and research in workplace wellbeing. Representatives of the organisation partnering with consultants and academics has pioneered new approaches to building psychological capital, growth mindsets and positive work environments enabled by developed leaders with skills and capabilities in psychological wellbeing.
Limitations: Challenges experienced in academic-practitioner collaboration will be discussed.
Implications for practice: A model for WSVs research and data-led employee wellbeing strategy will be shared as well as key stages in the collaborative timeline.
Conclusions: Further time is needed before evaluation of the overall impact of the collaborations discussed in this paper can be assessed. Examples provided demonstrate commitment to enhancing employee wellbeing and the role of research and data integration around organisational strategies, programs and practices.
