The changing world of work

Applied Research Conference sponsors

Please note that due to the ongoing uncertainty relating to COVID-19, the 2021 Applied Research Conference will be a virtual conference.

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.

Call for papers

The Applied Research Conference will next be hosted on 21 January 2021. It will be a virtual conference running to UK time. Please note: this year we will not as previously advertised be at the Alliance Manchester Business School, University of Manchester.
