People and Employment

Organisations must utilise their human capital to realise the full potential of their workforce, something which must be done in conjunction with, and aligned to, their strategic goals.

This research cluster serves to support organisations in this ambition and open a dialogue between academics and practitioners across all areas of human resource management and employee workplace behaviour. Membership of this group reflects a diverse range of research interests, including management learning, reflexivity, work-life balance, employee relations, gender issues in the workplace, workplace diversity & conflict, and human resource processes.

The group includes members with varied multi-disciplinary backgrounds offering a wide range of perspectives and insights, including psychology, sociology, educational sciences and management. The group also has membership with significant experience in applying different investigative methods including qualitative interviews, quantitative surveys, and case & experimental studies.
