Bio

Prof. dr. Charissa Freese is endowed professor on a chair in HRM and Social Security. This chair is endowed by Instituut Gak.

My research contributes to the social issue of how employers, employees and institutions can help create optimal labor market participation. With my colleagues of the Research Lab Inclusive HRM I investigate how HRM can contribute to decent work for non-standard workers, such as unemployed, people with disabilities, refugees, labor migrants, flexible workers and solo-self employed. I published over 70 scientific articles and I am (co)promotor of 10 Ph.D. candidates. In addition to this position, I am Vice Dean of TIAS School for Business & Society and extra-ordinary professor at North-West University, South Africa.

Expertise

The contribution of HRM to decent employment relations. This involves decent work for non-standard workers, such as unemployed, people with disabilities, refugees, labor migrants, flexible workers and solo-self employed. I do research on psychological contracts and organizational change, the influence of robots and digitization of the work place and the inclusion of people with disabilities.

Teaching

I developed the course Inclusive HRM with prof.dr. Borghouts. This master elective is open to students from TSB and TLS.

Collaboration

I closely collaborate with external partners on research, education and knowledge sharing. I established partnerships with companies. I developed several HRM-related courses and programs for practioners.  I am an academic lead of the Academic Collaborative Center Inclusive Labor Market.
