Harvest Resources Breakfast Meeting in DCU Business School
Harvest Resources Ireland’s leading People Development Specialists in partnership with DCU Business School jointly organized and hosted a Harvest Client Breakfast Meeting in December, 2014. This was a very special event to recognize the recipient Dr. Rachel Kidney of the first Pearse Walsh PhD Medal for furthering innovation in Industry through research in the field of Human Resource Development and Organisational Behaviour.

In total, 40 HR Directors, Organisational Development and Change Managers from a diverse range of Harvest clients attended. The Breakfast Briefing was kicked off by Frank Rock, Director, and Dr Anne Sinnott, Dean of DCU Business School, who gave a welcome address.
This was followed the presentation entitled “Driving the HR and Talent Agenda 2015” by a leading expert and scholar in the field of Human Resource Management, Professor David Collings.
Subsequently, Nicola O’Neill, the Managing Director of Harvest, introduced the winner of the Harvest Pearse Walsh PhD Medal, Dr Rachel Kidney, whose thesis on employee attachment styles and creativity is highly innovative and of great relevance for both scholars and practitioners alike. Specifically, Rachel’s research focused on the role of attachment styles in explaining why some employees are more creative than other and on shedding light on the relational process through which this happens.
