Dr. Sadia Nadeem is Associate Professor and Director Management Advancement Research Centre (MARC) at FAST School of Management, National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences, Islamabad, Pakistan. She joined FAST as an Associate Professor in 2007. She began her professional career as an electronic engineer in Pakistan and then moved to London where she studied and worked for 13 years. She holds an MBA and a PhD in Management from Cass Business School, City University, London, UK. Dr. Nadeem has carried out research and consultancy work in large private and public sector organisations. She has over a 17 years of experience in the field of HR, and has presented her work at many national and international conferences. In the UK, her primary areas of research were work-life balance, change management and discrimination and disadvantage in the labour market. However, her move to Pakistan shifted her interests towards high performance work systems, cross-cultural HRM, trust and leadership. She is currently working on several national and international projects which cover areas of global leadership competencies, trust across cultures, performance management, and organisational justice. She uses both qualitative and quantitative techniques for her projects, but particularly enjoys working on large datasets. Dr. Nadeem is a Chartered MCIPD (UK) and a member of the Academy of Management (US), the Society of Human Resource Management (US), and the HR Forum Islamabad (Pakistan).
