We are delighted to announce the launch of our second digital annual report.
As reflection is a key element of our approach here at the Tavistock Institute, the process of reflecting on ourselves is a valuable one and demonstrated in the balance of this year’s report. The Institute has remained true to its object which is to advance the study of the psycho-sociology of relations (in the widest possible sense of the word) between human beings and groups, and of the influence of environment in all its aspects on the formation or development of human character or capacity, to conduct research for this purpose, and to publish the results of such study research for this purpose, and to train students in or for any branches of the said study.
What have we been doing? We are working in new territories: as of 2016, we are delivering work in China for the first time. We have supported the work on social entrepreneurs through our Social Seducement project and explored the use of social media in emergency situations in the project Emergent and helped the Cabinet Office develop emotional resilience. The Lunchtime Talk Series continues to grow in popularity with a wide range of internal and external speakers. Our digital profile and engagement have expanded its reach as our audiences continue to grow.
We were delighted to have won FSB Employer of the year and you can see a snapshot of our staff interests in the report. It was also the year when we were forced to accept the loss of our friend and colleague John Mulryan.
We invite you to take a closer look at our annual report as we continue to work towards improving society.
