LER School Center to Present Practitioner/Academic Seminar on International HRM in NYC, May 18, 2017
“Emerging markets are becoming the new centers of gravity for the global economy, and competition for talent is becoming fiercer almost by the day. Access to talented workers is considered by some as the top indicator of a country’s competitiveness.” (Deloitte, 2013)
On May 18, LER’s Center for International HR Studies (CIHRS) is organizing a practitioner/academic seminar focused on “Addressing Multinational’s Challenges of Talent Management in Emerging Economies”. The complementary seminar for industry executives and managers will include a combination of academic and practitioner speakers addressing current challenges, with plenty of opportunities for networking (http://ler.la.psu.edu/cihrs/IHRMconference/industry-event). The speakers, including Kevin Owens (LER alum and Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Siemens PLM Software), Professor Mary Yoko Brannen (University of Victoria, Canada), and Professor David Collings (Dublin City University, Ireland), will share cutting-edge research and practice on issues affecting talent management for globally-operating organizations.
There is no registration fee for this event, however, we are seeking sponsors interested in providing financial support for the seminar. For more information on the event or on sponsorship, please contact Dr. Maria Beamond at the Center (firstname.lastname@example.org).
