The professor's research focuses mainly on the design and implementation of strategic HRM in organisations, people analytics and person-environment fit (the relationship between an individual's characteristics and values and the environment in which they work). To better understand how organisations can use strategic HRM effectively, she uses advanced analytics techniques and data (for example, large data sets of companies, or text data). She also studies the consequences of Artificial Intelligence for HRM, managers and employees in organisations.
Boon's research has been published in a wide range of (international) journals. One of her publications in Journal of Management is one of the most read papers of this journal.
The ABS professor teaches people analytics, leadership & management, and strategic HRM in various Master's and MBA programmes. To bridge the gap between theory and practice, she organises real-live cases for her students – in collaboration with various organisations.
Besides that, she is a mentor for PhD students and tenure track lecturers. She is currently supervising 4 PhD students in the field of people analytics. Finally, she is co-founder and co-director of the honours programme Data Driven Management and she provides masterclasses and in-company programmes for companies.
