In December 2016, the Applied Research Conference took place at Westminster Business School in London. This annual conference was set up to showcase and debate academic research in people management, employment and learning and development. As well as looking at theoretical and empirical advances, the conference has a particular focus on the practical application of research to labour markets and organisational life. The conference exists to strengthen the links between academics and practitioners and is thus aimed at both audiences.

The three plenary sessions from the 2016 conference were recorded and can be watched below. In the second tab, you can access seven research papers. We hope you find them interesting.
