Event description

Description

This event will review a long standing tension in human resource management concerning the extent to which HRM can both support workers while at the same time representing (and defending) the interests of employers. Contemporary developments in hyper-marketization and ideological individualism will suggest that HR policy and practice have advanced an exclusive pro-market rather than inclusive pro-business agenda, to the neglect of broader organisational and societal concerns. As a result, the role of HRM – both an area of professional practice and an academic discipline – is at risk of impoverishment. Implications for the future of the subject area and the way HRM is taught in mainstream business schools will be considered. This is a joint event in collaboration with the Manchester Industrial Society (MIRS)

Manchester Industrial Relations Society
The Manchester Industrial Relations Society is a well-established and important forum for the discussion of industrial relations and employment issues within Britain and internationally. Founded 53 years ago in 1964, the Society has mounted a continuous annual programme of meetings addressed by distinguished speakers from the industrial relations, HRM and trade union world. We now have over 160 members from across the north-west area drawn from the trade unions, management, Acas, Equality and Human Rights Commission, Industrial Law Society, and universities.
