A London Business School professor has been named one of HR’s ‘Most Influential Thinkers 2016’ by HR Magazine.

Andrew Scott, Professor of Economics, London Business School, was included in HR Magazine listing published this week. Scott recently co-authored new book The 100-Year Life, with Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice, also of London Business School. The book has also been shortlisted for the FT and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.

Scott said: “I am very honoured to receive this recognition from HR Magazine which is read by industry experts. As a macroeconomist I focus on how deep long run forces change the nature of the economy and society. But they do so through affecting the lives of millions of individuals and longevity will have its effect through a restructuring our life including our careers. For HR Magazine to recognise the importance of this role is fantastic.”

At London Business School, Scott lectures on macroeconomics, focusing on providing an understanding of how macro forces shape the global competitive environment. He has won the General Teaching Excellence prize, for which he is regularly shortlisted. His research focuses on business cycles, monetary and fiscal policy and longevity.
