    Translating IHRM Research for Practical Impact
    Increasingly, IHRM scholars are being asked to demonstrate the impact of their research beyond academic networks. In some countries (e.g., U.K., Australia), demonstration of research impact is being introduced as a metric for academic research performance. Research impact is also important for business school accreditation; for example, AACSB International has standards for business schools to demonstrate their contributions to societal needs. For many of us, however, engaging with industry partners, maintaining online social media accounts, and publishing in practitioner-oriented journals, are areas outside our 'comfort zone'. This webinar will host a panel of experts whose research is highly impactful. The panel members will share their experiences, insights, and best practices for translating IHRM research for practitioners and broader audiences.
