This event is now FULLY BOOKED.

Evidence-based practice is a way of approaching practice using a combination of critical thinking and the best available evidence from a range of sources: practitioner expertise; scientific findings; organizational data; and, stakeholder concerns and values. What is evidence-based practice, exactly? Where did the idea come from? How do you do evidence-based practice in organizational psychology and HR? How evidence-based are we? What are the barriers and how can we do it better? For more information about evidence-based practice in management, HR, and organizational psychology visit www.cebma.org.

Professor Briner’s research has focused on several topics including well-being, emotions, stress, ethnicity, the psychological contract, absence from work, motivation, work-nonwork and everyday work behaviour. Beyond academic research Rob helps practitioners and organizations make better use of evidence, including research evidence, in decision-making as well as encouraging academics to make research more accessible. He has written for and presented to practitioners on many aspects of HR and organizational psychology and is now involved in many initiatives aimed at developing and promoting evidence-based practice. He has received several awards for his work in this area including the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology Academic Contribution to Practice Award in 2014 and topped HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinker list in 2016.
