Our Ph. D student, Jieun You had a presentation at 2013 AHRD (Academy of Human Resource Development) conference which was held in Washington D.C. on February 14-16, 2013. Jieun presented her research, “formalized informal learning, social relationship, and organizational performance in the workplace” in the referred abstract section on February 16.
She studied the impact of formalized informal learning programs including formal mentoring and coaching, learning organization, and structured OJT on employees’ social relationships such as communication, trust, and organizational performance in South Korea.
Jieun said that she received positive feedbacks and advice on her research from other HRD scholars. She was very pleased to receive critical ideas and advice for her future research from remarkable HRD scholars and having an opportunity to discuss on her research with them. Also, Jieun strongly recommended attending various conferences to make connections with other researchers and students, which would provide wonderful experiences and opportunities to encourage and develop our research.
Currently, Jieun is working on her dissertation and this presentation was a good starting point.
