Welcome to track no 17, Nordic Practices of HRM!
We are looking forward to meeting you all at this track about human resource management and some adjacent topics. If you have not uploaded your paper earlier this summer you have to send it directly to the participants or to the track leader (see below). We guess you have seen the program (below) and know when you are supposed to do your presentation.
Prepare a short presentation of max. 15 minutes. Thereafter we have questions and discussions during 10 minutes. Put your slides on a USB stick and upload on the local computer before your session starts.
