Dr Selin Kudret is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human Resource Management at Kingston Business School. Selin holds a PhD in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management from King's College London, where she worked as a doctoral researcher and visiting lecturer during her PhD.
Prior to her academic career, Selin worked in industry in various specialist and managerial roles for several years. Throughout her professional career, she worked in the banking and beverage industries. Selin has experience of designing and managing HR systems in multinational organisational settings.
Selin's research interests include employer branding, corporate social responsibility, workplace stress, congruence research (person-organisation fit and psychological contract breach), and advanced quantitative research methods.
Selin collaborates with industry in various research and consultancy projects in the UK and across the globe. Her research findings and evidence-based practical solutions have been extensively used by her partnering organisations. In her doctoral research, she conducted a global scale, industry-funded project in collaboration with a major international bank across its 13 countries, numerous branches, and three operation centres. She developed a model of the perceived employer brand and investigated employee responses to the brand (e.g. organisational commitment, turnover, in-role performance). Her doctoral thesis was approved without corrections and was nominated for the King's-Elsevier Outstanding Thesis Prize by her examiners.
More recently, in a project funded by Kingston University, Selin has 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.
Selin communicates her research regularly in academic and professional communities. She has presented at various international conferences and gave key-note talks in numerous professional events.

She completed the HEA-accredited two-year postgraduate PGCAPHE programme at King's. She is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy.
Selin's teaching philosophy rests on the applicability of scientific knowledge to real life situations. The overarching objective of her teaching practice is to help individuals become self-regulated learners, who are capable of steering their own learning and assessing the quality of their work.
Selin combines her academic and research expertise with her experience as a former HR practitioner. She collaborates with academics and practitioners to advise on
- identifying perceived employer value propositions, designing employer branding programmes, and setting out the impact of such programmes on employees'/job seekers' attitudes and behaviours towards the organisation
- identifying workplace stressors, setting out their impact on employees and business, and suggesting organisation-specific actions
