Katie Sinclair has been awarded the ‘Best Development Paper’ at the HRM special interest group at the British Academy of Management (BAM) annual conference at Aston Business School, Birmingham, UK. BAM is the leading authority in the academic field of management in the UK and supports and represents a community of scholars who include management researchers, practitioners and doctoral students.

The paper, co-authored with her supervisory team, Prof. Graeme Martin (University of Dundee) and Dr. Stacey Bushfield (Edinburgh Napier University) is based on Katie’s early PhD work looking at an identity based process perspective to employer brand development in global firms. The conceptual paper stems the review Katie had completed during the first year of her PhD in order to a conceptual framework for future empirical work.

“I was delighted to receive this award and gain recognition amongst the HRM community in the UK – especially as I am only in the second year of my PhD programme,” said Katie Sinclair. “It was a fantastic session. I received some really valuable feedback on developing the paper and I even got to share some very early empirical data. BAM is such a supportive and welcoming community and I would recommend any aspiring management scholar to get involved!”
