In love with work

Jim McCourt meets Professor Peter Warr.
Peter Warr is a research professor in the Institute of Work Psychology at the University of Sheffield, a centre focusing on effectiveness and well-being in work situations. He is the only person to have been awarded all three major BPS awards (the Spearman Medal, the Presidents’ Award, and Honorary Fellowship of the Society), a situation that delights him. He says: ‘I am astounded to have one of them, let alone all three. How an applied psychologist in the BPS got into that situation I don’t know!’
