There was a really inspiring atmosphere on the “Competitiveness of the CEE region in the Global Economy” conference organized by the Academy of International Business and Corvinus University of Budapest.
The “International Management and HRM” track was lead by Dr. József Poór, chairman of the Hungarian Association of Human Resource Professionals and Director of the HR Research Center of Szent István University.
There was a wide variety of different compelling studies in the area of international Human Resource Management.
Dr. József Poór and Dr. Kinga Kerekes talked about HR Management at Subsidiaries of Multinational Companies in the CEE region.
My presentation was about the findings of a 6-year international research of HR and employee engagement management practices in the European region and the analysis of various HR and engagement practices’ relationship with certain employee aspects, such as employee engagement and morale and organizations’ talent attraction and retention ability.
The research findings are described in an article published by the Journal of Management and Financial Sciences: Employee Engagement and Human Resource Practices in the CEE Region and Europe (pp. 51-86)
The conference provided a great platform for building a bridge between academic research and international business practices.
