Abstract: Usha Haley and Andrew Jack highlight structures at play within business schools. They aim to move the dial towards ways in which societal impact could become central to the assessment of business and management research. The paper follows lively discussion, encouraging feedback and fertile follow-up questions from a recent webinar of the same title. Here, the authors focus more specifically on the challenges relating to how we measure societal impact within business research and what a more responsible research environment might look like within the business school ecosystem. The White Paper includes contributions by two journal editors, Renate Meyer of Organization Studies, and Maura Scott of the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing; a sobering snapshot of research social metrics within business schools compared to other areas of the university by Altmetric; and, some suggestions for post- pandemic business and management research directions in relation to health and well-being from Sir Cary Cooper.
