Event description

The Department of Organizational Psychology Summer Seminar and Alec Rodger Memorial Lecture 2017

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the OP Summer Seminar and the Alec Rodger Memorial lecture on Thursday, 29 June 2017. This year's Seminar will have a new, interactive format to give you a chance to participate in the debate and panel discussion on topical themes. It will be a wonderful opportunity for alumni and friends of the department to hear about the latest developments in the fields of Occupational Psychology, Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management (HRM). There will also be time to network with alumni, business professionals, academics and staff from the department during the day and at the wine reception following the seminar.

This year’s Alec Rodger lecture will be delivered by Professor Ellen Ernst Kossek, from Purdue University's Krannert Management School, on the topic of:
