The Applied Research Conference (ARC) is not currently running, as we focus on Evidence Lab Live at the CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition. Since 2015, ARC has been an annual meeting place for academic researchers and practitioners working in people management, employment policy and related fields. It brought together these two communities to hear about cutting-edge research in HR and discuss how it can be applied in practice.
The last Applied Research Conference took place on 25-26 January 2023 at the Alliance Manchester Business School, University of Manchester.
Evidence Lab Live is a new stage for the CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition. Building on the learnings of the CIPD Applied Research Conference (ARC), this unique format brings access to academia backed studies. It offers a unique combination of academic research and working practitioners on a range of topics such as people management, employment policies and learning and development.
