Dr Rami Alsharif

  • Lecturer in Human Resource Management (Management)

Biography

Dr Rami Al-Sharif (PhD, MBA, B.Com, PGCAP, RET-Fellow, AFHEA) is a Lecturer in Human Resource Management at Adam Smith Business School, where he also earned his PhD unconditionally in Management. Prior to this, he completed a MBA with Distinction in International Human Resource Management from Coventry University. Before becoming an academic, Rami worked over four years in the Banking sector and delivered consultancy work for a not-for-profit organisation in London. He also has experience in international entrepreneurship.

Rami’s research focuses on:

  • organisational trust
  • perceived fairness
  • identity threat
  • stereotype threat
  • young people's work and crime
  • the role of Human Resource Management (HRM) polices and processes in providing a trustworthy, fair and safe-identity-work environment for stigmatised groups to work and produce, and for their talent to flourish.

Rami is very passionate about issues of refugee integration in the UK labour market particularly and society generally. His aim is to incorporate research and work with policymakers and practitioners to help those who have been forced to flee their homes fearing persecution, war and violence to find hope, safety and support in a new welcoming home.

Rami applies mixed-methods in his research. He has considerable experience in using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) in Partial Least Squares (PLS) software in quantitative research. He also has strong experience in using Nvivo software, and thematic and attribution coding for qualitative research.

Rami is a member of the First International Network on Trust (FINT), and the European Network of Selection Researchers (ENESER). He was also invited by the British Psychological Society as a guest speaker to share his work with academics and practitioners. He is a RET Fellow, and teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
