IHRM Webinar Series: Time is on our side? Towards more time-sensitive research in IHRM

About this event

Time is an essential and classic, yet underdeveloped issue in IHRM studies. However, time has an often long and distinguished pedigree in a number of scientific disciplines such as philosophy, physics, sociology, psychology, and organization studies. They constitute rich sources of inspiration and refreshment for the field of IHRM. From these sources, crucial general anchor points emerge that lead to yardsticks for the degree of time-sensitivity of IHRM research. They point us towards specific routes for enriching our studies with temporal aspects that allow a more comprehensive and in-depth view on the phenomena IHRM is dealing with.

After briefly diagnosing the current situation in terms of time and IHRM studies, this webinar focuses on outlining the general anchor points and specific yardsticks for more time-sensitive IHRM research. It closes with major calls for the field of IHRM to further develop in this area.
