HRM-Network conference

Op 14 en 15 november organiseert het Department of Human Resource Studies van Tilburg University de HRM-Network conference. Aangezien het thema van dit jaar the societal impact of HRM is, willen wij de conferentie en één aspect in het bijzonder nogmaals onder de aandacht brengen:

Societal impact competition

Given that the topic of this year’s Dutch HRM Network Conference is on the societal impact of HRM, we would like to add a new element to the program. To promote the conference theme, we will organize a competition to look for the best idea on how to improve the societal impact of HR research. The format will be for researchers to submit a 750 word proposal to the conference committee. From the submitted proposals, a jury will select a total of 3 who will then be asked to pitch their idea on the final day of the Dutch HRM network conference. There will also be a discussion afterwards whereby the jury will pose questions to presenters followed by a collective discussion and debate. The winner of the best pitched idea will be decided by a jury of HR academics and HR practitioners and will receive a prize of €3,000 to be used in developing and implementing the proposed idea. The winner will also be exposed to media attention via a press release and other mediums to showcase their idea to the broader HR and business community.
