Description

This is a joint event with the CIPD South East Scotland Branch.

While the humanist and anti-humanist underpinnings of HRM remain contested terrain, developments in behavioural science offer opportunities to reinvigorate both the theory and practice of HRM. However a rush to catch up scientifically, to apply these developments may overshadow key questions that confront scholars and practitioners of HRM. The presentation offers a kernel of theorisation in terms of a new DENA Model of Post-HRM that, through discussion and debate, seeks to address behavioural issues relevant to the future of the discipline and profession of HRM.

Dr Andrew Burnett will be joined by Tony Crolla and Chris Logan of the Vittoria group of restaurants in a panel discusson that follows the talk.

Coffee and registration from 6pm. The event will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
