Research Interests

  • My research interests are in International and Comparative Human Resource Management. I specifically investigate the effects of demographic change and workforce ageing on public (government) policy, firm-level HRM and career outcomes of older workers. My research covers the country cases of Germany, Austria, the UK, Japan and South Korea. I am using a multi-level perspective as outlined below, and explore how stakeholders at different levels of analysis interact and influence one another. I draw on interdisciplinary theoretical approaches and mostly use qualitative research methods (including stakeholder interviews, life history interviews and focus groups). The levels of investigation and related research areas include:
  • Public policy: national regulations regarding work and retirement, labour market policy, welfare state policy, Institutional Theory and path-dependency
  • Firm-level: Age Management, Age Diversity, firm-level (HRM) policies and practices related to older workers, diffusion of HRM policies, institutional entrepreneurship
  • Individual level: Careers, individual decision-making processes regarding work-retirement transitions, Life Course Theory and human agency.
