Organisational performance during environmental uncertainty: The impact of an influential human resource function and high involvement work practices.

Project: Research

Project Description

This project is significant because in a period of global environmental uncertainty, the research investigates how the design and carriage of Human Resource Management (HRM) activities can ensure that workforce management decisions are made in a strategic rather than reactive manner. The project first examines if, during a period of economic stress, high involvement work practices can impact on organisational performance and second the effect an influential HRM function can have in strengthening or weakening that relationship. Outcomes include strategies for HRM professionals to assist in workforce management and the improved performance of the HRM function during increased environmental uncertainty.
