The 12th International Conference of the Dutch HRM Network will take at the University of Twente (the Netherlands) on November 9-11 2022. After the earlier postponement we have continued to work on the organization of next year’s conference. The Call for Abstracts is now finalized and we are happy to inform you about our two excellent key-note speakers. 

The Conference was originally planned for this month. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions we have earlier decided to postpone the Conference to next year. Both the economic crisis in mid-2008 and the COVID-19 pandemic made clear the need for continued resilience in organizations and societies. The two crises have likewise challenged HRM scholars in terms of flexibility and resilience, and emphasized the  importance of  our research (and the knowledge we create) on the well-being of the wider society in which we live and work. Hence the theme of the conference will be: “HRM for Resilient Societies: A Call for Actionable Knowledge”.

It is our pleasure to announce Professor Fang Lee Cooke and Professor Anne Keegan as key-note speakers at our conference. Professor Cooke (PhD, University of Manchester, UK) is Distinguished Professor of Human Resource Management (HRM) and Asia Studies at Monash Business School, Monash University, Australia. She is also a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia. Professor Keegan is Full Professor of Human Resource Management (HRM) at University College Dublin, College of Business (Ireland).

The call for abstracts including the 25 different tracks can be downloaded here. The deadline for abstract submission is on March 1 2022. At the start of 2022 we will open possibilities on our website to submit abstracts and later on to register for the conference.

We will keep you updated about information about the conference on our Conference page.
