Dr Haley Beer
Associate Professor of Operations Management
(Operations Management Group)

Haley holds a PhD in Management from the University of Warwick for her dissertation on Social Enterprise Performance Measurement and Management. She is the Lead of the Social Impact Evaluation of Coventry City of Culture 2021.

Her research focusses on the creation and measurement of social value and social impact: how organizations can have, and demonstrate, a positive influence (physical, emotional, cultural) on all stakeholders - not just make financial profit for shareholders.

She is currently working on projects exploring the nature of social value geographically and across sectors, as well as developing qualitative methods for measuring social value and social impact. Her work has been published in journals such as Journal of Business Ethics and International Journal of Management Reviews.

Haley has volunteered on and contributed to several regional, national, and international advisory committees, not-for-profit boards, and social value projects with United Kingdom and Canadian government entities and socially motivated organizations. She has consulted on impact measurement for organizations such as the Crown Estate, OECD, UNDP, and the Department for Communities and Local Government.
