Will Harvey's research focuses on three areas. First, on how reputation is built and sustained within professional service firms. In particular, he is analysing how stakeholders judge quality and reputation within professional service firms in multiple country contexts. Second, on the mobility, economic impact and social networks of highly skilled migrants. Specifically, he is focusing on British, Indian and Chinese professionals working in a range of economic sectors across different countries. Third, on some of the methodological, fieldwork and practical challenges with interviewing elite business professionals.

Will has published in a range of journals in business and management, sociology, geography and industrial relations including: Journal of Management Development, Work and Occupations, Employee Relations, Population, Space and Place, Qualitative Research, Global Networks, Asian Population Studies and Geoforum.
