As faculty members at a leading business school, we are producers and distributors of relevant knowledge. We can change the world of work at the interface between science and society. This is what makes our work meaningful.

Prof. dr. Lidewey E.C. van der Sluis is professor of Strategic Talent Management and Organizational Leadership at Nyenrode Business University. She is part of Nyenrode's Faculty Research Center for Strategy, Organization & Leadership.

She brings a fresh and economic view to traditional HR topics and social and pyschological dymensions of organizations and labour relations. Bringing to bear her knowledge and experience of economics (EconDrs, University of Amsterdam), management (PhD, Erasmus University Rotterdam and London Business School) and leadership (VU University Amsterdam), she scrutinizes the interface between work relationships, business economics, and talent management.

Van der Sluis would like to inspire as a scholar and knowledge partner bridging theory and practice with business and sector leaders. She is business wise and knows how to transfer academic knowledge into instrumental models and practical tools for HR-practitioners, talent managers and organizational leaders.

As a speaker, thinker and advisor, she shares her insight into and vision on themes such as talent management, strategic management, labor market trends, organizational design, professional leadership, sustainable and inclusive HR practices, employee engagement and motivation, and the acquisition, retention and maintenance of labor power in all her diversity. The future of work is central to her thinking and message.


In her spare time, van der Sluis can be found for her running and relaxation in the dunes and at the beach of her biotope Bloemendaal, where she lives with her husband and teenage children.
