human resource management: theory and practice

This chapter examines the theoretical debate about the nature and significance of the new HRM paradigm. The model is shown in Figure 1.5. Identify some contemporary health and safety hazards in the workplace. For example, training programmes could be notified and booked via the Intranet removing routine administration from HR departments. It is helpful to situate Britain's trade union experience in an international perspective (Table 12.3). Essentially this is done by deciding how much of the wage rate for each benchmark job is associated with skill requirement, how much with mental effort, and so on across all compensable factors. There are some important implications for how MSF is positioned in an organization and how support processes are established. (1994) Human Resource Management in the Multi-Divisional Company, Oxford: OUP. Similarly, Marginson et al. Bain (1997), however, provides a more pessimistic analysis of trends in workplace health and safety. Skills of Interviewing Structure Questions Variation in interview structure affected reliability, with low scores for unstructured interviews. Fox (1966) first proposed two contrasting styles of management, the pluralist and the unitary, according to the degree of legitimacy afforded by management to the trade unions. Since the Robens report, there has been a growing interest in occupational health and safety. They then go to their doctor, where the problem is treated as a personal one, in isolation (1981, p. 10). (1989) The transfer of Japanese management concepts in the international automobile industry. Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2003. According to the stereotypes depicted in Figure 1.7, HRM attempts to increase trust and employee commitment and aims to go 'beyond the contract'. (1997) Applicant personality, organizational culture and organization attraction, Personnel Psychology, 50: 359–94. The tendency has been to focus on more tangible health problems than stress, an emphasis that is costing employers and employees a lot in the long run, Dr Berger said. Development centres are the same as assessment centres in that assessment tests and exer- Page 228 Image Figure 8.5 A performance management cycle Table 8.3 The inputs of a development centre held for managers at Yorkshire Water plc 1. Page 19 The situational factors influence management's choice of HR strategy. In theory at least, a manpower plan could show how the demand for people and their skills within an organization can be balanced by supply. EU officials and their counterparts in the United States at the FTC and Justice Department work with one another on a regular basis. Essential prerequisites for any effort to implement a training model are a consideration of budgets, attitudes, abilities and culture or climate. Tobacco firms agree to pay in secondhand-smoke case, Globe and Mail, Canada, 11 October, 1997, p. A12. The following sub-sections offer some specifics on each of the four methods. 3.

Describe the major economic challenges facing human resource managers. How might performance be monitored or managed and what special features of reward and development need to be considered? Learning organization A concept representing an ideal of whole organization learning by all employees and the use of learning to transform the organization. 495–526. Four different union responses to HRM initiatives can be identified; simple opposition, passive cooperation, bargaining approach and partnership. In a democratic society, workers should be involved in the decision-making process when the outcomes of those decisions impact on their lives. 12. Case studies have their limitations. At first the department was not 'on-line' and premiums still had to be calculated manually. Kettley (1997, p. 2) claims that the growing popularity of multi-source feedback (MSF) is due to a number of factors which offer a way to: Page 225 1. empower employees and promote teamwork, by allowing them to appraise their managers 2. increase reliability of appraisals and balance, in flatter organizations 3. reinforce good management behaviour, by allowing people to see themselves as others see them. Hammer and Champy argue for a new approach to organizational design, work processes, and management. Canada, for example, has not experienced the substantial decline in the coverage of collective bargaining and unionization and the Canadian labour market is more closely aligned to the EU than its southern neighbour. Changing cultural values have an impact on human resource management functions. A growing number of companies appear to be rewarding their employees, within the same organization and doing an identical job, at different levels of pay. The link between strategy and human resource practice has been discussed by a number of researchers. Ichniowski, C., Kochan, T., Levine, D., Olson, C. and Strauss, G. (1996) 'What works at work: overview and assessment', Industrial Relations, 35(3): 299–333. Marchington, M., Goodman, J., Wilkinson, A. and Ackers, P. (1992) Recent Developments in Employee Involvement, Employment Department Research Series No. Contrast Interviewers are influenced by the order in which applicants are interviewed. However, there will continue to be significant changes in the structure and location of work. Nahavandi, A. and Malekzadeh, A.R. 'the only thing that matters is the community getting their services promptly, efficiently and professionally'. Page 392 Hakim, C. (1990) Core and periphery in employers' workforce strategies. Appraisal Productivity improvements will continue to be of vital importance to HRM in the next five years and, increasingly, many organizations will be turning to the development of integrated performance management systems based on a competency framework to help bring this about. Employees in every store have recently gone through a management programme focusing on improving core skills and process development. Understand the implications of these external contexts for the human resource 2. management function. 3122-prelims.qxd Thus an organization's goals will be derived from business strategy and translated respectively into sector goals, departmental goals, manager goals and employee and team goals. Page 365 4. Page 388 Burgoyne, J., Pedler, M. and Boydell, T. (1994) Towards the Learning Company, Maidenhead:McGraw-Hill. There is considerable debate among academics as to whether or not Japanese production methods constitute a discrete package of management techniques that can be lifted from their original social and economic context and universally applied. Attraction Favourable interaction between potential applicants and images and values of and information about an organization. The more likely real-life situation is one of continuous imbalance as a result of the dynamic conditions facing any organization, the behaviour of people and the imperfections of manpower models. Individual employees are able to set targets, objectives and goals for each stage through appraisal. Mezirow, J. The central tenet of traditional trade unionism has been the collectivist culture, namely the insistence on rewards according to the same definite standard and its application in the organization. This was particularly the case in the service sector; the proportion whose sole or main product market had more than five competitors increased from 56 to 64 per cent. When there are two sets of arrangements, the terms of reference of the JCC need to be specified by defining both its subject matter and the nature of its authority. Among establishments surveyed, Page 32 54 per cent had increased employee communication and involvement, as defined in terms of quality circles or problem-solving groups. 6. As a consequence it commissioned a report on The Dignity of Women at Work. Paradigm A framework of thinking based on fundamental assumptions providing explicit and implicit views about the nature of reality. This book is both theoretical and prescriptive. Operation efficiency – Japanese industry's raison d'etre – achieved by pioneering practices such as total quality management and continuous improvement, has provided significant competitive advantages in the past, but may no longer be enough to beat off competition, according to the report. Leadership and strategic HRM. Similarly, the aim of minimizing costs was a key factor for many years in the process of deskilling work so that workers who left, 'wastage', could be easily substituted by new recruits. Another set of perspectives emphasizes the problematic nature of employment relations: the two interrelated problems of 'control' and 'commitment' (Watson, 1986). Kydd, B. and Oppenheim, L. (1990) Using human resource management to enhance competitiveness: lessons from four excellent companies, Human Resource Management Journal, 29(2): 145–66. Of the respondents who used computers, 3.3 per cent reported a use for job design and 9 per cent for job analysis. Bring your club to Amazon Book Clubs, start a new book club and invite your friends to join, or find a club that’s right for you for free. First, on the basis of pressures to meet short-term targets and a poor training infrastructure, investment in skills is considered too risky. Fourth, in return for physical effort or mental application, fatigue, and loss of personal autonomy, the worker receives a mix of rewards, including 'money', status, and intrinsic satisfaction. 'Nikko is very much a Japanese company,' a spokesman said. Such developments have resulted in an enhanced effectiveness for the selection interview and improved scores for reliability and validity. 'The message that is coming through loud and clear is that ministerial review works best when it is done in a peer appraisal scheme or by suitably trained lay people,' she said. The collective agreement can be tailored to the specific needs of a company or plant rather than to the more general needs of an industry (for example, multi-employer agreements would be inappropriate when pay is largely determined by job evaluation work study). We also examine an alternative view of strategic HRM; the 'resource-based' model. Despite the publicity surrounding managerial stress, the realities of the distribution of work-related hazards show that they are most prevalent among manual workers. (ed.) Evans, A.L. Sections 13–16 relate to union membership. According to one industrial relations academic, the legislation has marked 'a radical shift from the consensus underlying "public policy" on industrial relations during most of the past century' (Hyman, 1987, p. 93). For example, a 30-year-old is more likely to be married than a 20-year-old. The essence of the labour market is that workers sell their labour and seek to maximise their wage. For example, to comply with the EU Pregnant Workers' Directive, Sections 23–5 amended maternity rights. In some cases, organizations will be able to use Internet-based technology to help them screen out applicants before they make contact with a company. The UK Health and Safety Executive suggest that SBS may be caused by lack of fresh air supply, inadequate ventilation, unsuitable lighting, airborne pollutants and, more generally, low levels of morale. Given the importance of equal pay legislation for reward management, the next section examines important issues of pay equity. 5–6 and quoted by Bain (1997), p. 177. 3. This chapter will look at the transition from manpower planning driven by techniques towards human resource planning as an aspect of HRM. The new 1998 Workplace Employee Relations Survey (WERS) also reports that 25 per cent of all jobs in workplaces with 25 or more workers are part time (working fewer than 30 hours per week) (Cully et al., 1998). If identical non-people resources, in the form of raw materials, plant, technology, hardware and software are available to competing organizations, then differences in economic performance between organizations must be attributed to differences in the performance of people. 'Employment security has become a way of life,' said Harry Donaldson, regional industrial officer for the GMB in Scotland. In addition, it has been argued that while the 1980s saw the politicization of 'green' issues, one challenge facing organizations in this decade is the reassertion of underlying value systems. Observers of changes in work structures have asserted that new production regimes that give limited control do not reverse the general deskilling trend but have a tendency to increase the intensity of work (Sayer, 1986; Turnbull, 1986; Tomaney, 1990; Clarke, 1997) and offer management much 'tighter control' of the effort bargain (Malloch, 1997). Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) I was not trained to manage fear, discrimination, and dying in the workplace.23 A textbook on human resource management for the next millennium would be incomplete if no reference were made to society's most recent menace, AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). Whistle-blowing Employee disclosure of illegal, immoral, or illegitimate practices on the part of the organization. Blyton, P. and Turnbull, P. (eds) (1992) HRM: debates, dilemmas and contradictions. Conway, H.E. Image There was too much law. (1986) The creative approach to pay, Personnel Management, October: 32–6. Salamon, M. (1987) Industrial Relations: Theory and Practice, London: Prentice-Hall. Purcell's (1995) work, for example, demonstrates how the imperatives of the marketplace and 'rational' managerial decisions limit the adoption of the matching paradigm. Performance appraisal Analysis of an employee's capabilities and potential drawn from assessment data of past and current work, behaviour, and performance, allowing decisions to be made in relation to purpose – for example HRD needs. Making judgements about an employee's contribution, value, worth, capability and potential has to be considered as a vital dimension of a manager's relationship with employees. 4. The design of reward systems is contingent on the organizational and environmental context in which they must operate. Economic and social factors present further challenges with managing reward systems. There are also indirect costs associated with work-related accidents. British Institute of Management (1977) Employee participation: the way ahead. Gregg, P. (1973) A Social and Economic History of Britain, 1760–1972, 7th edn, London: Harrap. Sick building syndrome Interest in the physical aspects of the work building, as a factor affecting employee performance, goes back to at least the 1930s with the Hawthorne experiments in the USA. To this family of theories we can add re-engineering. The management philosophy of total quality control (TQC) attempts to build quality standards into the manufacturing process by making quality every operator's concern and responsibility. Many organizations have espoused quality as a key objective along with associated ideas relating to customer service and continuous improvement. To quote George Wyke: What the STM system has done as far as man-management [sic] is concerned, it has pushed that responsibility further down the chain, into the SMTs. However, in the interests of equity, such decisions will need to be taken on the basis of data that are both reliable and valid (see Chapter 7). Downie and Coates' (1994) survey study of Canadian firms reported that HRM is taking on somewhat 'more strategic importance', but provided little evidence to substantiate the notion of strategic integration. The ability to forecast behaviour according to age has the advantage of allowing HRM professionals to know more about the composition of the workforce and their needs. Selection As we have seen, it is usual for an organization that wishes to recruit new employees to define criteria against which it can measure and assess applicants. E D I T I O N In the UK this is usually in the form of regulations. The status and the importance an organization attaches to personnel management can be gauged by whether or not that function is represented on the board of directors. Sapsford, D., Johnes, G., Armstrong, H., and de Kervenoael, R. (1997) British employers and the Social Chapter: some survey evidence, Industrial Relations Journal, 28(3): 236–42. During the period 1850 to 1900, Factory Acts were amended, tightened and extended to new industries due to a combination of factors, including social reformers, the inspectorate and, more significantly, campaigning by a growing and more militant trade union movement. He is actually trying to communicate.1 Previously we had very formal joint consultations. It is worth, just for a moment, paying attention to the process of planning at this level. As we discussed in Chapter 2, there are major methodological challenges in measuring the precise EI–organizational performance link. As we discussed in Chapter 2, the importance of the concept of strategic choice is that it highlights the question of who makes decisions in business organizations and why they are made. Prediction – Recognition of the way people differ must be extended to a prediction of performance in the workplace. The global economy has become more integrated. Against each description, there would normally be the specification of standards of performance. It begins by examining the notion of 'worker commitment' and concludes with an analysis of union strategic responses to the HRM paradigm. 1. The HASAWA (1974) requires employers to provide instruction and training to ensure the health and safety of their employees. Voos, P.B. (eds) (1991) Advances in Selection and Assessment, Chichester: Wiley. The right-hand side of the model focuses on the link between HRM and performance. Baldwin, T.T. In periods of market turbulence and financial stringency there is a tendency for corporate management to improve profitability by downsizing, decentralizing decision making and applying more demanding performance outcomes at the unit Page 50 level. The result is likely to be the emergence of sophisticated models that make use of multiple techniques that satisfy the demands of multiple users. 'But it was seen as cynical by the workforce and had no influence on the outcome of the negotiations.' (1984, p. 85) muse that 'employee development is a key strategy for organizational survival and growth'. Overall, 41 per cent of employees had received off-thejob training for an average of 7.9 days in a period of 12 months, although, as the survey's authors remind us, such estimates are subject to inaccuracy caused by sampling error. Performance-related pay is said to underpin a more purposeful and 'objective achieving' strategy for managing workers. The re-engineered organization allegedly has a number of typical characteristics (see Figure 4.7). It may be argued that the manpower analysis is there to serve as an aid to decision making, but the presentation of data and an inability to deal with the ever-increasing complexity of models was always likely to result in the manpower analysis being 'seen' as the plan. In some organizations, line managers may be the only people who consider human resource management. Conditions in the external labour market will therefore be another factor determining management style, policies and practices. Leadership is by nature dialectical: it is socially constructed through the interaction of both leaders and followers (Smircich and Morgan, 1982). In 1972, the UK became bound to EEC Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome: 'Each Member State shall... maintain the application of the principle that men and women should receive equal pay for equal work'. Tyson, S. (1995a) Human Resource Strategy, Pitman: London. Recruitment and selection have been notorious areas for prejudice and subjective influence and these could well result in infringements under legislation dealing with discrimination. To judge this assumption it is necessary to examine the principal actors in the industrial relations system and ask, 'In what ways have the relations between the key actors – management and unions – changed?' For example, as the percentage of older workers increases, work values may change: work may not be as central to a 55-year-old as to a 30-year-old. Sisson, K. (1993) In search of HRM, British Journal of Industrial Relations, 31(2): 201–9. Wage cost of decreased output by injured worker after return to work: 4 days at 2 hours/day light work 6. As managers identify processes, machines and substances that are hazardous to the health and well-being of employees, they must modify the process to eliminate or reduce the hazard and risk 'at source'. Thus, most HRM literature presents the HRM model as inconsistent with traditional industrial relations systems in Britain and North America. Two groups of unionized workers at a Canadian company were studied, one organized in Japanese-style work teams and one organized in traditional work structures. The psychological study of people at work attempts to understand individual behaviour, and there is a large body of literature covering the academic field of 'organizational behaviour', concerned with managerial problems of motivation, job satisfaction, work stress, job design, and any other factor relevant to working conditions that could impede efficient work performance. Gleaning through the advertisements in newspapers and journals she also decided to drop the term 'personnel' and advertise for a 'Human Resource' Manager. Organizations may monitor a wide range of matters relating to employees' health, from routine eye tests and chest X-rays to screening for breast and cervical cancer and incidents of infertility and abnormal childbirths. The main problem is that less a consultative procedure allows for an element of negotiation, it may become irrelevant and wither (Perkins, 1986). Long, R.J. (1997) Motives for profit sharing, Relations Industrielles/Industrial Relations, 52 (4): 712–31. As one management guru, Peter Drucker, points out, 'Increasingly, companies, even quite small ones, have to be run as "transnational" businesses. Reward is defined in the following terms: Page 239 Reward refers to all forms of financial returns and tangible services and benefits employees receive as part of an employment relationship. 'Staff on Barr's course certainly felt that their performance would have a bearing on their future at work – and that has a bearing on this tragedy.' Advocates of profit sharing contend that it can increase performance, result in greater employment stability and be a 'win-win' for employees and employers (Tyson, 1996). Part two reviews the external contexts that affect human resource management policies and actions inside the organization. The company was not ready for the process of accreditation until commitment was gained from the senior management team. I do so by demonstrating that concepts from complexity align well with the RBV, and I extend the RBV by considering critical but difficult aspects commonly identified in the RBV strategy literature. I do know, however, that EU Directives on pay equity and recent court decisions on retirement and pensions will push our labour costs up. As Robens stated 'accident prevention can be integrated into the overall economic activity of the firm' (1972, p. 140). For HRM practitioners, attention has focused on the implications of job redesign for employee's health and safety (see Chapter 5), the need for workplace learning (see Chapter 10), and the need to synchronize human resource management and labour relations to new work structures (see Chapter 12). (ed.) When people enter the workplace, they enter a contractual exchange whereby their behaviour is directed by controllers towards the achievement of specific tasks. The integrative theoretical of leadership and strategy developed by Nahavandi and Malekzadeh (1993) depicts the organizational leader to be 'key' to both the formulation and implementation of competitive strategy. Indirect forms, such as joint consultation, widening the content of collective bargaining and 'worker directors', are associated with the broader notion of 'industrial democracy' (Brannen et al., 1976; Bullock, 1977). All these alternative reward systems represent experiments by employers to better link rewards to individual performance, to encourage functional flexibility and team synergy, and to foster individually orientated organizational cultures (Bacon and Storey, 1993). In the past, the term 'career' is one that has usually been applied to managerial and professional workers. Figure 5.4 Typical symptoms of stress Tension and anxiety Anger and aggression High blood pressure Inability to relax Sleep problems Digestive problems Chronic worry Irritability and boredom Excessive alcohol and/or tobacco use Forgetfulness Uncooperative attitudes Increased absenteeism Reduced job satisfaction Increased accidents Page 142 2. (eds) (1985) Job Stress and Blue Collar Work, Chichester: Wiley. This pattern continued for the next four decades. 1. There is no doubt that the nature and experience of work is changing. If, as some observers have argued, there is nothing particularly distinctive about the HRM model, or if it simply gives a greater prominence to organizational behaviour concepts, then HRM is just a change in style of presentation, or 'old wine in a new bottle.' An agreed takeover by Bass was blocked last year by the government. Functional – a firm's ability to adjust and deploy the skills of its employees to match the tasks required by its changing workload, production methods or technology. Further, the organization's profit levels can directly affect its pay levels. The staff in Norman's department were an understanding group and carried the extra work. Rapid progress was made and accreditation was achieved at the first attempt in June 1996. Over the last fifty years the company has developed as a leading manufacturer of commercial vehicle components. Freelance – work for a variety of different clients. IMP director of professional policy John Stevens sees the report as highlighting the importance of participation. Managers scrutinised jobs and attempted to eliminate unnecessary or bureaucratic processes so that staff were able to concentrate on the main business. External competitiveness refers to comparisons of the organization's pay relative to the pay of competitive organizations. One of her first tasks was to set up a quality committee of senior managers to transform the Council's culture, employee attitudes and performance. EU legislation In the 1990s, EU directives under Article 189 of the Treaty of Rome are an important source of health and safety legislation. In Gallie, D. In Figure 2.3, this type of proactive model is depicted by the two-way arrows on the right-hand side showing both downward and upward influence on strategy. Page 105 Fordism Henry Ford applied the major principles of Taylorism but also installed specialized machines and perfected the flow-line principle of assembly work. Do you agree or disagree? Explain the purpose and uses of assessment and appraisal. Huczynski, A. and Buchanan, D. (1991) Organizational Behaviour, 2nd edn, London: Prentice-Hall. To what extent are HRM practices culturally determined? It encourages students to think critically and evaluate the nature of HRM in order to develop a deeper understanding of employment relations. In 1856, for instance, employers succeeded in lowering the standards for guarding machinery where women and children worked. This may have implications for job design, department structure and management style, creating a tension that will have to be resolved. Schwab, D. and Grams, R. (1985) Sex-related errors in job evaluation; a real-world test, Journal of Applied Psychology, 70(3). Please try again. 9– 10) correctly argue 'Performance-related pay individualizes the employment relationship because it isolates employees and personalizes issues such as design and evaluation of work'. It reviews and discusses HRM concepts and includes up-to-date references on HRM scholarship. 's (1984) HRM model, attention to workplace health and Page 134 Figure 5.2 The estimated cost of a workplace accident 1. Schneider uses the findings from vocational psychology to argue that people are attracted to an organization on the basis of their own interests and personality. Management interest in the reward–flexibility link is associated with the goal of improving labour productivity or what detractors refer to as the 'intensification of work' whereby workers are utilized to produce more in a given period of time. As Guest (1990) points out, the HRM model is underpinned by the need to reconfigure organizational structures as the rhetoric is essentially 'antibureaucratic'. The survey-based study of Canadian establishments provides evidence that new HRM practices operate best in certain organizational 'environments'. You are asked to comment. Arthur, J. Human Resource Management Theory and Practice 9780805838626 Reliable estimates of the total costs of occupational illhealth and accidents are incomplete, which is perhaps symptomatic of the low priority given to this area of work in the UK. At the onset of the re-engineering process Clive Warren and Elizabeth Hoffman undertook to 'open the books' to the unions and established team briefings and regular, formal consultation meetings with union representatives. 155–75. In Sisson, K. Kochan, T., Batt, R. and Dyer, L. (1992) International human resource studies: a framework for future research. A number of academics are critical of 'postmodern' or 're-engineered' formulations (see Craig and Yetton, 1993; Oliver, 1993; Reed, 1993; Thompson, 1993; Grint and Willcocks, 1995; Willmott, 1995).
