First International Meeting of Comparative Studies of Contextual and Institutions in Human Resource Management

(6th and 7th of november – 2018)

School of Economics, Business and Accounting

Management Department

São Paulo – Brazil


The meeting is an innovative initiative in the field of Human Resource Management studies in Brazil, relevant in face of the accelerated process of insertion of the Brazilian economy into the dynamics of globalization. The meeting will have invited experts from the CRANET network that will bring the experience accumulated mainly within the CRANET network in the last 28 years. The CRANET network (based at the University of Cranfield – UK) has been researching Human Resources Management (HRM) practices in several countries since 1989. Its main objective is to contribute to theorists and professionals interested in comparative research in people management. The FEA USP (São Paulo) will host the meeting that would strengthen the meeting of the CRANET network at USP for the first time in a university in Latin America and, consequently.

The proposal of the Meeting is integrated into the pre-congress activities of the XXI SEMEAD – Administration Seminars that will be hosted at FEA USP (November 7-9, 2018). The meeting will have a joint session with researchers from the XIII Research Workshop on Institutions and Organizations (organized by CORS – Center of Organizational Studies of USP) (also among SEMEAD pre-congress activities). This First Meeting would disseminate knowledge among international experts and Brazilian researchers. It is hoped to consolidate a research agenda that establishes national and international connections between universities and researchers.
