Professor Chris BREWSTER - South Bank University, U.K.
Organisations have developed more and more into 'human capital' or 'intellectual capital' organisations for competitive advantage. They are doing this in increasingly international and competitive environments. As a result, the culture of an organisation and the culture of the country where it is located have become increasingly important factors affecting organisation performance. This in turn expands the roles and priority of human resource management to develop appropriate human resource strategy, policies and programmes for alignment to strategy and to build a high performance organisation culture. The challenge is also made more complicated by significant cross-cultural value and legal differences between organisations and geographic regions and recent issues of failure of governance, corruption, mergers and acquisitions.
Proposals for presentations are invited for the 19th SHRM WORKSHOP which present research or theory on any of the following themes related to HRM:
* Strategic HRM - the design and operation of HRM to achieve organisation strategy and goals as well as its role before, during, and after mergers or acquisitions.
* HR'r Goverance Role - HR's responsibility to manage corporate governance issues especially the influence of managerial compensation systems in driving good (or bad) corporate behaviours and in the selection, composition, appraisal, compensation of board teams
* Organisational Culture - analysis of the impact of organisational culture on performance, exploration of strategies and methods for the management of culture for competitive advantage, and the analysis of issues inherent in managing cultural change.
* National Values - exploration of the interaction of industry or societal values on the adoption of HRM practices and processes, the influence of maintaining parallel HR systems in different countries for legal or cultural reasons on the effectiveness of the company, and the role of HR managers in the national location decisions of new business unit investment.
