Developing Research Culture among Staff under Conditions of Organizational Change

Abstract
This paper focuses on encouraging the growth of a research culture within a school of hospitality and tourism in one third-level institution in Ireland. The aim of the initiative is to increase engagement of staff members in impactful research, leading to benefits for individual staff members and a greater research profile for the school. Taking an action research approach, a plan of initiatives was designed and implemented to develop research culture. The paper examines the phenomenon of changing the organizational culture at the department level in a higher education institution undergoing a large amount of organizational change. The initiative is still underway; hence this paper explores and reflects on the approach, the challenges, and the successes thus far.
