Dr Philip Stiles
Dr Philip Stiles is a senior lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at Cambridge Judge Business School, where he is co-director of the Centre of International Human Resource Management (CIHRM). CIHRM derives from Stiles’ earlier project, the Global Human Resource Research Alliance, a research group that involved 30 major companies worldwide – including GE, IBM, IKEA, Oracle, Shell, TNT and Unilever – to identify innovative and best HR practices within companies, and to show how human capital integrates with key dimensions of organisational and social capital.
