J.G. (Jeroen) Meijerink
Dr. Jeroen Meijerink (1985) is an assistant professor in the field of Human Resource Management at the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands). He holds a MSc in Business Administration (cum laude, 2008) as well as PhD in Business Administration/Human Resource Management (2013) from the University of Twente. His PhD research intended to explain the added value of HR shared service centers for both organizations and their employees. For this research, he collaborated with organizations such as Ahold, the Dutch Railways (NS), KLM, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior, Pfizer, Stork, Tata Steel, Thales, TNT, T-Mobile and several municipalities. His studies showed that clients and users significantly influence HR SSC performance and hence, he continues to uncovering how employees and line management, together with HR SSCs, support (or prevent) the effective implementation of HRM. His current research is both qualitative and quantitative in nature, and focuses on HR shared services, value creation, employee agency, organization of the HRM function and HRM implementation. From February 2013, Jeroen has been working as an assistant professor at the School of Management and Governance (University of Twente), where he combines his research with educational activities for (under-)graduate and MBA students. His research has been published in the International Journal of Human Resource Management, Personnel Review, European Journal of International Management, and People Management. In 2012, Jeroen received a Fulbright Grant for conducting research into HR shared services in the US, which he used for staying as a visiting scholar at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (during the fall semester of 2012-2013).
He has presented his research at both academic conferences and workshop/seminars for practitioners. His research activities aim at creating value for both academy and practice.
HR Shared Service Models
HR Roles and Governance
He will be covering:
The BU-SSC-Employee Triad: how different constituents affect HR SSC performance
Contracting or collaborating? Explaining the effectiveness of HR SSC governance structures.
Substitution for provider inability: how clients can compensate for poor service provision
Those who make or break HRM: why employees are the (co-)implementers of HRM policies
To share or not to share: that's the question. When does using shared services pay off?
