Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations (HRM & IR)
What is HRM & IR?
Human Resources Management
The human resource management (HRM) function of an organisation manages the individual aspects of the employment relationship - from employee recruitment and selection to international employment relations, salaries and wages. HRM is a complex blend of science and art, creativity and common sense. At one level, HR practice draws on economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, political studies, and strategic and systems thinking. At an operational level, success depends on interpersonal relationships.
Industrial relations is also a multidisciplinary field that studies the collective aspects of the employment relationship. It is increasingly being called employment relations (ER) because of the importance of non-industrial employment relationships. IR has a core concern with social justice through fair employment practices and decent work. Industrial relations covers issues of concern to managers and employees at the workplace, including workplace bargaining, management strategy, employee representation and participation, union-management co-operation, workplace reform, job design, new technology and skill development
