UNSW is pleased to present the call for papers for the Second HR Division International Conference (HRIC), to be held in Sydney, on February 20-22, 2016, co-sponsored by the HR Division of the Academy of Management (AOM), the Business School and AGSM at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Centre for Human Resource Management at the University of South Australia, and Monash University. The conference theme is Highlighting Context and Concepts in Human Resource Management (HRM).

The current Academy of Management membership profile reflects a significant turning point: more new members now come from outside North America than from within it. In the not-too-distant future, the majority of AOM membership will be based outside North America. The HRIC conferences are designed to better integrate this global community and disseminate HR knowledge to management researchers and practitioners wherever they live and work.

Building on the success of the first HRIC in Beijing, China (June 2014), this second HRIC focuses on current directions in contexts and concepts in HRM and features three eminent keynote speakers: Prof. David Guest (Kings’ College, London, UK), Prof. Fang Lee Cooke (Monash University) and Prof. Cheri Ostroff (Centre for Human Resource Management, University of South Australia). In recent decades, as organisations have worked to break down geographical barriers and develop global communities, research has contributed important insight about how HR strategy, practices and outcomes operate across contexts. However, large gaps remain.
