The changing world of work

Applied Research Conference sponsors

The Applied Research Conference (ARC) is an annual meeting place for academic researchers and practitioners working in people management, employment policy and related fields. It holds a unique place in bringing together these two communities to hear about cutting edge research in HR and discuss how it can be applied in practice.  

ARC is an interdisciplinary conference that covers a wide range of aspects of people management, employment, learning and development and organisational development. In all research papers presented, we set out to discuss the practical application of insights to organisational life and labour markets.

ARC 2022 will be held on 26-27 January, hosted by the Alliance Manchester Business School as a hybrid online / face-to-face event. The call for papers is now closed. If you would like to be kept up to date about ARC, please email to be placed on our mailing list.
