With great sadness we have learned about the death of our respected and inspiring colleague Professor Jo Thijssen (11 August 1943 – 25 June 2022). Prof. Jo Thijssen was professor of Educational Sciences between 1996 and 2002 and professor of Strategic Human Resource Management and Utrecht University between 2002 and 2006.
At Utrecht University Jo Thijssen helped to lay the foundation for Strategic Human Resource Management at the Utrecht School of Governance (USBO): “we remember him as a committed colleague who was always very interested in the personal and professional lives of others. He was an inspiring teacher and researcher, who helped lay the foundation for Strategic Human Resource Management at the Utrecht School of Governance – both in education and in the research program.” More memories (in Dutch) can be found on the website of Utrecht University.
The board of the Dutch HRM Network sends its deepest condolences to his family, friends and (former) colleagues.
