Last Friday I gave a lecture on Strategic HRM at the Mercator Academy. Mercator is the largest Slovenian retailer and a very important player in SE Europe employing over 20.000 people. Mercator Academy is a learning and networking facilitator for high potential young employes who are trained to become the future leaders of the company. They were presented various approaches to designing and implementing HRM strategy. I enjoyed vivid interaction with participants and excellent discussion about the HRM strategy in Mercator.
