HR Lab to lead way in talent management

The Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) has teamed up with recruitment firm Manpower to launch a new global HR research laboratory.

The Manpower HR Lab, based at the London School of Economics (LSE), aims to establish a leading centre of excellence and ‘thought leadership’ platform, studying the impact of HR and labour market productivity trends.

The lab will link data analy¬≠sis carried out by some of Europe’s leading experts to business management practices. Research findings will be communicated and discussed via regular industry briefings, an annual conference and a series of reports.

Professor Steve Machin, who will head the project, said: ‘The establishment of the Manpower HR Lab is a significant contribution to the development of talent management research at LSE, and we are looking forward to working with Manpower as an industry partner.”

The first year will conclude with a conference, and will provide the opportunity for practitioners, academics and policy makers to come together and share theories and best practice.
