Principal Lecturer in Management and Organizational Behaviour, Christopher Bond, was recently invited by the BRICS Association of Business Schools to deliver a keynote paper at their annual international conference on Human Resource practices.

The two-day seminar on ‘Best Practices and Trends in HR – An International comparison’ addressed a wide range of issues and themes relating to HR at the global level. The conference was held at the XIME Institute in Bangalore and attracted over 300 delegates from all over the world. XIME is a leading Business School in Bangalore, Karnataka State, India, whose mission is to provide value-based management education, not only to those seeking careers in the corporate sector, but also to entrepreneurs, small scale industrialists and those working in public (state) sector industry and services.

Chris delivered a paper on HR Practices in the UK: the demise of a profession. In this he argued that with a move to strategic HRM, devolved HR to line managers, outsourcing and shared services there is a real question mark in the UK, US and Australia about the role, function and necessity of HR departments.

Chris has been an academic in business and management education for over 20 years and is an active member of professional bodies and academic associations. He has a strong interest and engagement with internationalization of the curriculum and has lectured and taught in over 20 countries around the world.
