The research of Jeroen Meijeirnk focuses on HRM and Value Creation in the Digitized Economy. In particular, he studies two digital-enabled sourcing options: HRM shared services and crowdsourcing. The former topic includes the design, implementation and evaluation of HRM shared service models. The latter research topic centers around the HR management and value of crowdsourcing workers that offer their services via online platforms such as Uber or AirBnB. Both streams of his research are multi-disciplinary in nature and draw on theories insights from the HRM and strategy (e.g. intellectual capital theory and the consumer perspective) as well as service marketing literatures (e.g. service dominant logic).
His research has been published in peer-reviewed international outlets such as Human Resource Management, Journal of Business Research, Human Resource Management Review, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Personnel Review, European Journal of International Management, and The Services Industries Journal.
He has organized multiple international workshops and symposia that brought together researchers and practitioners with an interest in HRM, sourcing and value creation. For this research, he collaborated with private and public organizations such as Ahold, the Dutch Railways (NS), KLM, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior, Pfizer, Stork, Tata Steel, Thales, TNT, and T-Mobile. For realizing his research initiatives, he was granted financial support from the Fulbright Scholar Program and the NWO.
