New HR Management Academy to Open, Teach on Global HR Issues

London — April 2

A new International Human Resources Management Academy (IHRMA) has been established by King’s College London’s Management Learning Board and Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR).

The academy, which will meet at least twice a year in New York and London, is designed to be a forum for sharing cutting edge academic research and new knowledge and ideas with HR leaders. In so doing, it will provide insight and understanding into highly demanding, strategically critical, current global HR management issues.

The IHRMA forums cover evolving key business themes arising from managing people in an international environment, allowing participants to become better equipped and informed around HR decision making that can create competitive advantage for their own organizations.

The 2012 forums include the following themes:

• Globalization.
• Global firms and emerging management challenges.
• Changing HR paradigms and global value chains.
• The changing role of global HR and the CHRO.
• Developing international HR strategy, metrics and analytics and ROI.
• Managing major organizational change across international boundaries.
• Leveraging talent within the global organization.
• Organizational innovation and HRM.
• People risk and reward in an international context.
• Managing internationally mobile, remote and virtual teams.

In participating in the International HRM Academy, participants will be exposed to new knowledge as it is being created as many of the speakers, such as Professors’ Patrick Wright, Tony Edwards and David Collings, will present ongoing research and practice.
