After more than five years and two children, we are delighted to congratulate Sharna on the conferral of her PhD. Her thesis is entitled ‘Talking About Talent: Conceptualising Talent Management Through Discourse’.
Her research ’employs discourse analysis in order to understand how the concepts of “talent” and “talent management” are socially constructed within an organisational setting and the ways in which these are then brought into being and enacted [and] highlights that the meanings attributed to these often “taken for granted” concepts is not commonplace or self-explanatory, but rather that they come about via ongoing processes of negotiation within organisational settings.’
That one is soooo worth a coffee or two, and it’s our shout! Congratulations Sharna on achieving this important career milestone.
