Jake Young, Research Associate CIPD
Jake joined CIPD as a Research Associate in 2018, having completed a master’s degree in Social Science Research Methods at the University of Nottingham. He also holds an undergraduate degree in Criminology and Sociology. Jake’s research interests cover a number of workplace topics, notably diversity and inclusion, with which he has been involved in two recent research projects. Jake is also interested more widely in organisational culture, particularly the role this plays in key research agendas such as learning and development.
Alongside Jonny Gifford, Jake co-authored the CIPD’s newly-published evidence review of Employee Engagement, and its discussions into the relationship between engagement and performance, as well as three key constructs that underpin engagement, motivation, organisational identification and commitment.
