Thank you for attending the CIPD Applied Research Conference, 5-6 December at the Nottingham Conference Centre

This year’s Applied Research Conference takes place at Nottingham Conference Centre at Nottingham Trent University hosted by Nottingham Business School. 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.
