Mission of the expertise center

We research the future of our labor organization. Together with our partners we create a sustainable vision on HRM, work, careers and organizations. Our research is based on a number of fundamental principles, as well as on our personal activities: the importance of the vision of all stakeholders and a co-creative approach. Through dialogue and collaboration with different partners and stakeholders, we reach practical solutions that are introduced in many organizations.

There is a huge need for better insight into how organizational changes can be successfully introduced. A balance needs to be found between the quality of the organization on the one hand and the quality of labor on the other: the creation of an Innovative Labor organization, while keeping an eye on the human side of organizational change processes. The portfolio organizational change at Antwerp Management School offers you state-of-the-art insights and a clear scientific framework to face your future challenges. With this expertise center, we help managers find a sustainable way to prepare their organization for tomorrow.
