Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences

Understanding the sociology and psychology of human actions

Expertise Department HRS

The department of Human Resource Studies, located in a social and behavioral sciences school rather than a business or economics environment, takes a balanced approach in studying the exchange relationships between employer and employee at different levels of analysis (individual, team, organizational, and societal level) and both from the perspective of the employer/manager/owner as from the perspective of the employee/individual.

Our department has a strong international focus, with a strong institutional linkage with prestigious research centers. This focus can be divided in four main categories on which our department has expertise. These areas of expertise are as follows:

  • Strategic Human Resource Management
  • New employment relationships
  • Talent development
  • Group dynamics and diversity
