My research project
Sustainable Performance as a Holistic Approach to Value Creation at the Workplace
Agni Dikaiou studied her BSc in Economics at the Athens University of Economics and Business. During her studies, Agni spent a semester at the University of Utrecht. Following her undergraduate studies, Agni spent two years working as a consultant in Lisbon, collaborating with non-profit organisations and city councils in areas such as social entrepreneurship and crowdfunding, public policy for local development and creative industries. Agni’s interest in public policy and social innovation led her to an MSc degree in Economics for Public Policy at the University of Surrey, where she was introduced to the work of Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP).
Agni is currently a PhD student with CUSP exploring Sustainable Performance as a Holistic Approach to Value Creation at the Workplace. Her first project analysed econometrically the relationships between Job Satisfaction, Labour Productivity, ICT and Intangible Capital. During her research placement at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Agni interviewed social enterprises Certified as B Corporations in the US, exploring qualitatively dimensions of sustainable performance, such as working conditions, environmental and social impacts as well as financial performance, such as growth and productivity.
