Overview

In December 2017, the Applied Research Conference took place at  the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. 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 research papers are available to download below. We hope you find them interesting.
