OHRM Subject Group

The Conference Leads and Steering Committee comprise members of the ‘Organisation and HRM’ (OHRM) Subject Group.

The OHRM Subject Group comprises 52 members from across the Faculty.  We provide research and consultancy in strategic HRM; cultural and organisational development: cross-cultural training, management and leadership development: public sector analysis and leadership: reward strategies: employee relations: employee engagement, absence management; learning evaluation, executive coaching and leadership; small business mentoring; women and management, and a host of other HR issues. The Group works with the CIPD, the University Forum for Human Resource Development, the Chartered Management Institute, the Northern Leadership Academy and the Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative.  

The subject group’s research activity covers a broad range of issues in organisation theory and HRM including gender, identity theory, leadership, management learning, talent management, migration and employment relations, public management, reward management, virtue ethics, social entrepreneurship and communities of practice.  In the past year colleagues have published in journals including the Journal of Business Ethics; Business Ethics: A European Review; The Czech Sociological Review; Technology Analysis & Strategic Management, Philosophy of Management, Public Policy and Administration, Local Government Studies, Public Money and Management, Personnel Review and Management Learning.  

Further information about the Subject Group can be found here.

The initial call for papers and the structure of the programme will be coordinated by the Steering Committee with assistance from other members of the OHRM Subject Group.
