IAB/ZEW HRM Workshop "Assessing the Impact of Human Resource Management Practices"

hosted by the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW)

Congress Centre of the Federal Employment Agency (BA)

Start: 16 Nov 2017

End: 17 Nov 2017

  • Overview


    A growing literature in personnel economics has explored how firms may use human resource management strategies to attract the “right” workers, maximize their productivity and prevent the departure of valuable employees. New technologies, coupled with increasing job autonomy and task variety, have created additional challenges for HR management. For instance, both workers and managers are calling for more flexibility, an improved work-life balance and greater gender equality. As a consequence, individualized career paths and flexible work arrangements have become part of the toolkit of modern HR management, complementing more traditional instruments.

    This workshop will bring together researchers from all fields of personnel economics working on one of the following topics:

    • Further training
    • Working conditions
    • Health at work
    • Job satisfaction, engagement and commitment
    • Recruitment (hiring, screening, raids)
    • Employee turnover and retention
    • Careers, promotions and job ladders
    • Compensation methods, incentive pay and performance evaluation
    • Flexible work arrangements
    • Digitalization of HR
    • Employee representation and participation

    Keynote Lecture
