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.
We work with international institutions and organisations in collaborative research networks and projects.
Within the Department of Human Resource Management, we have:
- the Scottish Centre for Employment Research, one of the UK’s leading contributors on workplace innovation; job quality, skills and learning
- the EU-funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network: Changing Employment that aims to identify the nature of the restructuring of European labour markets and economies as a result of current economic and social change
- the editorship of three journals - New Technology, Work and Employment (Joint Editor, Professor Phil Taylor); Employee Relations (Editor, Professor Dennis Nickson); and Human Resource Management Journal (Joint Editor, Professor Dora Scholarios).
