"I am exploring understandings and experiences of workplace cyberbullying among New Zealand nurses in my research. In doing so, I am hoping to identify factors in the work-environment that can facilitate the reporting of these incidents, with the aim of reducing the prevalence and impacts of workplace cyberbullying." 

Jason Cordier

"The title for my PhD thesis is "The strategic role of HRM in a Sri Lankan Bank: Making sense of activities and approaches." My research examines the actions, activities and interactions that various actors within a bank undertake to strategically interact with the Human Resources Department. I examine all levels of the bank including employees, line managers, middle and senior managers. I utilize a strategy-as-practice perspective to first better understand what being strategic actually entails, and then seek to understand why some actors and business units attempt to be more strategically engaged with HR than other actors and business units.
