PERFORMANCE related pay and bonuses are hot topics in the current economic climate, so it was no surprise to the University of Chester’s Business School that its one day conference on performance management was fully subscribed.
The event was organised jointly with the British Academy of Management and attended by doctoral students from throughout England and Wales. They came to hear from three leaders in the field of performance management.
Professor Caroline Rowland, Sub Dean of the Chester Business School, co-ordinated the event. She said: “This was one in a series of special interest groups organised specifically by the British Academy of Management for its members who are taking PhD and Doctor of Business Administration qualifications. The Academy is the premier institute for management research and is dedicated to providing its students with the best learning opportunities possible.
“We were delighted to host this event for students who will be actively involved in economic wealth creation in the future, either through research or hands-on roles in industry. Our aim was to provide them with an opportunity to hear from eminent speakers representing both research and practice in performance management.
“Participants were very impressed not only with the event but also with the facilities and the energy we have created here in the Chester Business School. We were pleased to hear from Academy members that ours was one of the most successful events in its special interest series.”
