Human Resource Management: Placing the human front and centre
Monash University Prato Centre, Palazzo Vaj, Prato, near Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Sun. 12 to Tue. 14 June 2022
Symposium summary

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered unprecedented changes in the way work is performed and managed (Biron et al., 2021). More than ever, we need to reflect and re-examine how we work and do business and the role of Human Resources (HR) in promoting a sustainable future. In this symposium, we seek to understand the current and future challenges for Human Resource Management (HRM) through a human-centred lens (Cooke et al., 2022). Placing people at the centre of attention in relation to HR practices and policies enables a more humanistic and inclusive appreciation of the way in which employees may add organisational and societal value amidst significant and unparalleled change.

Topics likely to be examined include (the list is not exhaustive):

  • The role of HR under micro- and macro-turbulence
  • How can we build back better? The post-COVID-19 workplace
  • Employee’s experience and intersecting crises
  • Responsible HRM practices in the context of climate change
  • The role of HRM in sustainable and responsible employing organisations
  • Opportunities and challenges for talent management in the changing world of work
  • HRM practices across different organisation forms and systems
  • The gig economy and its implications for HRM in a global context
  • Designing, implementing, and promoting HRM practices for the digital age
  • Big data, artificial intelligence, and job automation: opportunities and challenges for workforces
  • Changing workplace demographics, inclusion, and diversity in the global economy
  • Human Resource Development amidst a changing workplace
  • Workers’ voice and behaviour in the age of teleworking
