IES Honorary Fellowship launch

Employment Studies issue 22

This Autumn, IES will be launching our Honorary Fellows programme.

We have invited eminent individuals who share our values and support the Institute’s mission to bring about sustainable improvement in human resource management and employment policy.

The official Fellowship launch event will take place following the annual IES HR Provocation in November at which we are delighted to announce that Lord Ian Blair will be the evening’s keynote speaker.

IES Honorary Fellows are individuals who have worked with and supported IES in various ways, and include those at the forefront of employment issues: organisational, trade union and HR leaders, thinkers, policy-makers and commentators. They have each made a personal contribution to sustainable improvements in employment policy and HR management, some through thought leadership, others through being leading-edge workplace practitioners or experts.

Our Fellows will form a unique body of influential peers from a range of sectors who share a common interest in and passion for employment and its importance to individual, organisational and societal wellbeing and prosperity.

The Fellows will help us deliver our mission by: valuing evidence-based policy and practice; being independent of employment-related dogma, popular opinion, fads and fashions; promoting debate with others on the nature and practice of the employment relationship; and helping to shape our agenda by offering views or advice on our research topics and work with employers.

We are excited about this new area of association for IES, and look forward to announcing our list of Honorary Fellows very soon.
