To Be Determined
The conference will be organized around sub-themes that reflect the interests and experience of academics and practitioners throughout the state of Connecticut. We welcome the submission of abstracts from faculty members, doctorate students, researchers, and business practitioners. We also encourage independently-conducted research papers by undergraduate and Masters Students.
Undergraduate and Masters Students can submit a full-length paper to be considered for Best Paper, and/or, submit a poster presentation.
Presentation topics of interests, but are not limited to:
Demographic/cultural changes in CT workforces
Social media in the workplace (HRM focused topic)
Recruitment strategies for today’s marketplace
Attraction-Selection-Attrition for today’s marketplace
Rewards and motivation
The ethical workplace
Diversity and inclusion
Workplace violence/Bullying behaviour
Career identity/Career Development
Case studies on best practices in HRM/HRD
Challenges, issues, bottlenecks and gaps preventing HR practitioners from adopting research findings
Examples of what industry practitioners would like from researchers
Practical challenges that have potential for research
Cultural differences in collaboration (industry needs versus academic approaches)
The main idea of the workshop is to bring both practitioners and researchers together to exchanges ideas on particular topics of importance. Workshop proposals should be Practitioner-interest driven.
The one-day conference will allow adequate time for presentations and discussions ensuring the transference of knowledge and understanding and networking opportunities among participants. As this is a knowledge sharing and networking conference we also encourage non-presenting HR practitioners, academics and students to attend the event.
Faculty, doctoral students, and business practitioners interested in presenting empirical research or case study material should submit a 2000 word abstract. Submissions should follow to the Abstract Manuscript Template which can be found TBD.
Submission deadlines: February 28, 2018
All submitted abstracts will be double blind peer-reviewed.
HR practitioners who are interested in submitting a workshop proposal should submit a 1000 word abstract that outlines the HR topic/issue you would like to have workshopped.
Submission deadline: March 28, 2018
Undergraduate and Masters students can submit a full-length paper to be considered for Best Paper. Submissions should follow the Paper Manuscript Template which can be found TBD here.
