I chose Cranfield based on the reputation it has for strong business focused academic research with practical outcomes for practitioners. The quality of the staff and the level of service offered to students and researchers was also a significant factor.
Those in the human capital management field are under constant pressure to demonstrate the value they add to organisations. I am looking at this from the perspective of how HRM policies add value to organisations by understanding what the linkages are that deliver this, in particular the role that non-HR managers play in improving the performance of employees and thus add value to an organisation.
