Dr Selin Kudret

Senior Lecturer / Assistant Professor


I am a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management at Kingston Business School. I hold a PhD in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management from King's College London, where I worked as a doctoral researcher and visiting lecturer during my PhD.

Prior to my academic career, I worked in industry in various specialist and managerial roles for many years. Throughout my professional career, I worked in the banking and beverage industries. I have wide-ranging experience of designing and managing HR systems in multinational organisational settings.

My research interests include employer branding, corporate social responsibility, workplace stress, congruence research (person-organisation fit and psychological contract breach), and advanced quantitative research methods. 

I collaborate with industry in various research and consultancy projects in the UK and across the globe. My research findings and evidence-based practical solutions have been extensively used by my partnering organisations. In my doctoral research, I conducted a global scale, industry-funded project in collaboration with a major international bank across its 13 countries, numerous branches, and three operation centres. I developed a model of the perceived employer brand and investigated employee responses to the brand (eg organisational commitment, turnover, in-role performance). My doctoral thesis was approved without corrections and was nominated for the King's-Elsevier Outstanding Thesis Prize by my examiners.

More recently, in a project funded by Kingston University, I have collaborated with a leading service organisation in the UK and examined workplace stress among their line managers and its implications for employee wellbeing, engagement, career success, in-role performance, and turnover. 

I communicate my research regularly in academic and professional communities. I have presented at various international conferences and given key-note talks in numerous professional events.
