The shifting landscape of work and working lives
The Applied Research Conference (ARC) is an annual meeting place for academic researchers and practitioners working in people management, employment policy and related fields. It holds a unique place in bringing together these two communities to hear about cutting edge research in HR and discuss how it can be applied in practice. ARC is an interdisciplinary conference that covers a wide range of aspects of people management, employment, learning and development and organisational development. In all research papers presented, we set out to discuss the practical application of insights to organisational life and labour markets.
The conference will take place on 22-23 January 2020, and will be hosted by Dublin City University (DCU) Business School in Ireland. One of Europe's most dynamic business schools, DCU is ranked in the QS Top 50 Universities under 50 years old.
