    Human resource management

    Our research looks at various areas of employment relations, the sociology of work and organisational behaviour and analysis.

Human resource management (HRM) is all about the nature and regulation of the employment relationship and is an area that a number of fields contribute to, such as sociology, psychology and industrial relations.

Our main area of activity is in employment studies and this was named as one of the main areas of the Strathclyde Business School's strengths in both the UK-wide 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).

The Business School is rated 10th best in the UK for business and management research in the 2014 exercise, with a joint 1st rating for ‘research environment’ and third highest for research impact. 

Our department of HRM produced three of the eight impact case studies that formed the basis for the score. This is a strong indication of success in making our research relevant to a number of different stakeholders, including government, employers and professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and trade unions.

We work with international institutions and organisations in collaborative research networks and projects.
