The project "Talking with executives and HRs on People Management" aims to develop a reflection on major contemporary issues that are arising in the field of people management. This analysis and debate will be focused on the challenges that organizations operating in or from Portugal, in line with the trends of service economies and knowledge, as well as a new global framework of productivity requirements, are confronted, where the value of people emerges as a critical factor for sustainable competitive differentiation. It is to deepen this analysis that we propose this project, giving a very special emphasis to look at this reality through the perspectives of two of their most important players, executives and managers responsible for the human resources function.
The results of the project will result in the publication of a book with case studies and the development of at least two articles to be submitted to journals indexed to the SCOPUS databases and / or ISI.
