In 2004, after completing her PhD she joined Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands where she was the lead researcher on an international HR Excellence project: The Global HR Research Alliance. This project was aimed at establishing the practices and mechanisms which generate/improve HRM effectiveness in multinational companies. The research project was sponsored by the Sanyo Corporation, and involved in-depth case-studies among selected multinationals in Asia, USA, UK and mainland Europe, along with a global web-based survey.

 

In 2006, Elaine took up her position as Assistant Professor in Tilburg University, working with Professor Jaap Paauwe. Elaine was responsible for an International HRM module on the Masters in Human Resource Studies. She was also involved in numerous research projects, publications and executive development activities.

From 2004-2009, Elaine worked in a research capacity with Professor Veronica Hope-Hailey and colleagues in the Change Management Consortium.

 

In 2009, Elaine started her current position with the School of Labor and Employment Relations at the Pennsylvania State University, headed by Professor Paul Clark, responsible for running International HRM modules on undergraduate, graduate, and professional Masters programs, both in residence and in online programs. She is also involved in conducting research (such as a SHRM Foundation funded project looking at employee engagement, and writing for academic and practitioner publications. Elaine founded the Center of International Human Resource Studies in 2013, since when she has organized the bi-annual Global Conference on International Human Resource Management.

 

Elaine’s specialist areas of interest and research include:

-        international and comparative HRM, including global talent management;

-        the power, professionalism and roles of the HR department;

-        HRM and firm performance;

-        HRM and employee engagement.

Elaine has presented numerous papers at international conferences and has published articles and chapters in both the practitioner and academic press (see below). Elaine has also been an instructor on various Bachelors, Masters, MBA and executive training courses focusing primarily on International HRM, including the Advanced HR Program at Tilburg University.
