Dear Colleagues,You are cordially invited to attend the 9th annual EIASM Workshop on Talent Management!This workshop is designed to bring together leading and emerging scholars working from a range of disciplines in the area of talent management with the intention of furthering theoretical and empirical work which can contribute to this rapidly developing area of study. In these past 8 years we have been able to build a strong global community of scholars and practitioners working in the area of talent management, and we recognize the need to maintain our community, as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis. We have also established an enviable reputation for supporting early career academics and Ph.D. students, and we recognize the particular damage to the development of these groups that would be brought by cancelling the 2020 event.
As a result, the TM Workshop chairs, Professors Vlad Vaiman (Lead chair), David Collings, Hugh Scullion, and Anthony McDonnell (local host) are organizing a 3-hour virtual event on October 5 followed by a special 90-minute session, dedicated exclusively to PhD students.
The MAIN SESSION (3 hours) will consist of opening remarks, a keynote speech by Prof. Rebecca Kehoe (Cornell University, USA), Q&A session, panel discussion, feedback session with all Workshop participants, and a wrap up led by the chairs.SPECIAL PhD SESSION (90 minutes) will include the following:
These initiatives reflect our commitment to maintain both momentum and continuity for our Talent Management community and opportunities for our virtual attendees to update their knowledge and networks until we can meet again in 2021.
