Education: BA (Honours) (Politics, Leeds University).
Chris teaches introductory HRM at undergraduate level and foundation modules on HRM in a Business Context at postgraduate level. He is currently the Department’s Director of Teaching with particular focus on the undergraduate programmes. His main areas of scholarship include key influences shaping the employment relationship and managing people across different kinds of organisation and workplace contexts. He has a long interest in public sector employment relations and to what extent these are, or should be seen as, different from the private sector. This interest is part of a debate that really emerged from the early 1980s with changes of government in the UK and elsewhere and new ways of thinking about the organisation and management of public services, including forms of privatisation, contracting out, public-private partnerships and new forms of people management introduced into the public services. This debate is still very much alive today.
Another area of interest over the years has been in the idea of Corporate Social Responsibility, defined as the social purpose and role of business beyond seeking to be profitable and meeting the interests of owners/shareholders/investors. This interest includes responsibilities for employee well- being beyond legal regulation and other aspects of wider social responsibility, for example for environmental impacts.
Chris is an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Before joining Strathclyde as a Research Fellow, Chris worked as a researcher in the Department of Social and Economic Research at Glasgow University on a major urban policy/inner cities comparative project and before this worked on research in areas of public administration at what was at the time the Polytechnic of Central London.
As well as teaching interests in HRM, Chris has also contributed during his time at Strathclyde to the faculty cross disciplinary Management Development Programme for all undergraduate students in the School.
