Dear RES Forum Members, We are already working on producing the RES Forum Annual Report for 2019!
The report will be authored by Professor Michael Dickmann, Professor of International HRM at Cranfield University, School of Management, and we would like to ask for your help to complete our research survey. We received feedback that there were too many surveys in 2018, so this year we have combined all of the core research surveys into one, meaning that you do not need to spend time completing the organisation data multiple times. This survey will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.
Here at the RES Forum, we like to think of our members as part of a community, where we all work together to share information to help us do our jobs better. To enable this to happen in the most effective way, we would like to ask everyone to play an active part in our community.
So this year, we are asking each RES Member company to nominate just ONE member from their organisation to complete this Annual Report Research Survey, and in return, EVERYONE in your organisation will be able to ask an unlimited number of benchmarking questions of other RES members this year using the RES Forum email question surveys. Organisations who do NOT complete this survey by the closing date of Friday 16 November 2018 will only be able to send out 3 questions during 2019 to other RES members.
We hope you’ll agree that this is the best way for us as all as a community to get the best quality annual report that we can all use to analyse, inform and benchmark our own GM programmes and to educate ourselves for personal, continued professional development.
Additionally, everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win a 250GBP (approx 280EUR/ 330USD) Amazon shopping voucher. To take part, either click on the link that you have recently received from us directly from survey monkey or click here
Thank you in advance for your participation!

IN THE NEWS What can companies do when expats face gender discrimination? A new survey suggests businesses are ill-equipped to help international assignees, says Professor Benjamin Bader. The public discussion on gender discrimination has, quite rightly, generated enormous momentum around the globe. And the topic of discrimination against women on international work assignments is also receiving more attention.
Women are underrepresented in leadership positions, they earn less than men and they also suffer more from discrimination when on international assignment. The number of female assignees is significantly lower than men, and those who are on assignments face challenges because of their gender in many host countries.
