About Gill Owens
Gill is an early career researcher who after 20 years in industry moved in to academia gaining a first class honors’ degree in Psychology at Teesside university before registering for a PhD (imminently due for submission). Her desire to pass on her combined business experience and understanding of people to students naturally led to securing a lecturing post at Teesside University Business School.
Whilst Gill’s varied experience of all elements of business means she is flexible in what she can teach, her main interests lie in understanding behaviour in the workplace and holistic employee development. Her mantra to colleagues continues to be, ‘you can mess about with the numbers all you like but you have to look after your staff.’
Gill’s main research interest is in dyadic relationships and how they can influence the workplace and
business performance. However, areas of psychological well-being, positive psychology and emotional intelligence in the workplace are also of interest and Gill is happy to collaborate with colleagues on potential research projects in these areas.
Gill is a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and will be applying for chartered status on award of her PhD.
