The Centre brings together the best researchers in HR to develop a major source of insight into leading issues in the field. Our research is informed by the interests of our partnering organisations to ensure relevance and impact.
Far more questions than answers exist regarding the culturally contingent aspects of HR. The major goal of the Centre is to develop empirically based theory to describe, understand, and predict the impact of HR variables on employee behaviour, organisational processes and the effectiveness of these processes.
Our research approach is multidisciplinary, linking HR to other fields of inquiry to ensure a holistic picture of HR activity and effectiveness is developed. We also endeavour to integrate societal, organisational and individual levels of analysis.
