NWO Grant for developing a training to decrease cultural distance between employers and new employees

11 July 2017

NWO has granted research proposals for eight research lines of the national science agenda (Nationale Wetenschapsagenda) with maximal € 2,5 million for each line. Within the research line ‘Towards a resilient society’ the thematic program JOIN, focusing on young people in a resilient society, received funding. This program will be implemented in cooperation with several consortia, of which one is composed of researchers of the Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences of the University of Groningen, - namely Nina Hansen (Social Psychology) and Liesbet Heyse (Sociology) and The Hague Process on Refugees and Migrants, a leading, international and research-orientated NGO working on innovative solutions to improve labor market integration of migrants and refugees with businesses.

To improve the integration of first generation migrations in the labor market in the Netherlands the consortium will develop and evaluate a training for employers and managers to adjust their formal and informal Human Resource Managements procedures and practices to decrease the cultural distance between employers and new employees.
