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 areas covered, we set out to discuss the practical application of research insights to organisational life and labour markets.

The 7th CIPD Applied Research Conference took place online on 26-27 January 2022. Next year we plan to be face-to-face at the Alliance Manchester Business School; the call for papers will open in Spring 2022. If you would like to be kept up to date about ARC, please email to be placed on our mailing list.

The 2022 submissions are available to download below.
