The department of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior of the FEB hosted the seventh biennial international conference of the Dutch HRM network on 10 and 11 November. The Dutch HRM network is a society of full professors of universities in the Netherlands and Belgium who have an HRM master program as well as a related research program.
The conference brought over 200 participants from 20 countries to Groningen and was supported by FEB’s research school SOM. The local organizers Eric Molleman and Sanne Ponsioen state: "We think that the conference has been a very successful event.The parallel sessions covered the whole broad area of HRM with themes such as ‘HRM and performance’, ‘the ageing workforce ‘, ‘power and leadership’ and ‘HRM in the public sector’. Besides, there were two excellent keynote speakers who have put two important issues on our research agenda.”
Keynote speaker Susan Jackson from the Rutgers University and the former president of the Academy of Management highlighted the managing of Human Resources in environmentally sustainable organizations. Sara Rynes from the University of Iowa discussed the gap between HRM research and HRM practice. “We think that our expertise center is a nice example of a worthy initiative to strengthen the link between the university and practice.”
Within two years the 8th edition of the conference will be held at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
The scholarships are for $50,000 and will be available starting in 2019 thanks to a gift Prof. Wietze Eizenga left to the Koninklijke Hollandse Maatschappij der Wetenschappen.
