Both the economic crisis in mid-2008 and the COVID-19 pandemic made very clear that organizations and societies at all times need to be resilient. The two crises have also challenged HRM scholars in being flexible and resilient, and emphasize how important our research and the knowledge we create can be for the wellbeing of the wider society in which we live and work. After the success of the HRM Conference in Tilburg (2019), we continue the scholarly tradition to explore the contribution of Human Resource Management to Societal Challenges.
The 12th International Conference of the Dutch HRM Network will take place on 9-11 November 2022 at the University of Twente (UT) in The Netherlands. The Conference is embedded in the UT’s multidisciplinary research tradition, its multifaceted research programmes in People First High Tech systems, and its mission to empower a resilient society through sustainable solutions.
