Elaine Yerby BSc MSc MCIPD FHEA
Prior to joining the Royal Docks School of Business and Law I worked in a variety of operational and strategic HR roles for the Metropolitan Police Service. I am the Programme Leader for the CIPD accredited MA HRM.
I am a committed researcher-practitioner with specialist interests in work place conflict resolution and mediation. As a trained work based mediator I conduct mediations internally and externally to UEL. I also research in the areas of work based conflict and conflict resolution. Other research interests centre around career development in the HR profession, as per the topic of my PhD completed in 2019; 'Exploring the career management experiences of female middle managers in the HR profession through a feminist poststructuralist and intersectional lens'. I am the programme leader for the MA in HRM and teach on a variety of strategic HR modules at postgraduate and undergraduate level. Prior to joining academia I held a number of operational and strategic HR roles in the Metropolitan police service, including the Employee Engagement and Communication Manager on a large scale HR transformational programme.
