The topic will be of interest to researchers in this emerging area of HRM.

Dr Benjamin Bader, Deputy Head of Leadership, Work, and Organisation and Senior Lecturer in International Human Resource Management at the Business School has a newly edited book ‘Danger and Risk as Challenges for HRM: Managing people in hostile environments’ which will be published in Routledge Taylor and Francis Group.

The topics included in the book will also be featured here at the Business School in the Advanced Business Topics module.

The book focuses on challenges linked to managing people in hostile environments due to it being a matter continuously brought up in plans for HR professionals in multinational corporations and business leaders. Reasons for the increase in barriers within this area include political instability and terrorism activities in numerous regions.
