Business School staff won Emerald Publishing’s Literati Award

Dr Sachiko Takeda, together with her co-authors Dr Marta Disegna and Dr Yumei Yang, won Emerald Publishing’s 2020 Literati Award for Excellence. The publisher states, “it is an honour to be able to celebrate and give global recognition to those who have made a significant impact within their field. We would like to congratulate all of this year’s winners, all of which have been selected based on their research excellence, rigour and relevance.”

The authors’ paper, “Changes in Chinese Work Values: A Comparison between the One-Child, Social Reform and Cultural Revolution Generations” published in Evidence-based HRM, was chosen as the Highly Commended Paper.

The paper investigates the changes in Chinese workers’ values by comparing the work-related values of the One-Child Generation, the Social Reform Generation and the Cultural Revolution Generation. China’s unprecedented generation of only-children as workers is an unknown factor, and the paper is one of the first studies to include this generation in the investigation of work value changes in Chinese society

As a token of winning the award, the publisher has now made the paper open-access.

The team is grateful for the support they received, which made this research possible.
