  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - The impact of deregulation on employment relations in
           the Australian retail industry
    • Abstract: Mortimer, Dennis; Ingersoll, Louise
      This paper discusses the growth in research on management strategy in the period following the decentralisation of the Australian Industrial Relations system in the late 1980s and early 1990s. While the role of individual company management was minimal in the centralised IR system, the move to enterprise bargaining was designed to facilitate the linking of management's strategy in employment relations to its overall business strategy. The paper argues that while management strategy did become an area of focus, at least in relation to studies of employment relations practices in the retail industry, most of the studies tend to treat management at 'arm's length', and fail to analyse management's strategic intentions or choices. It is suggested that part of the reason for this is the focus of the studies on published reports and surveys, rather than the use of case studies that specifically focus on the strategic use of labour in the Australian Retail Industry.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - Recruitment practices in Australia: A review and
           comparative research agenda
    • Abstract: Jepsen, Denise; Knox-Haly, Martha; Townsend, Daniel
      Although the Australian economy suffered, recruitment defied the global financial crisis and continued a 'war for talent'. Simultaneous skills shortages and relatively low unemployment in this unique historical context pushed Australian recruiters to adapt their practices and strategies. This review examines practitioner and peer-reviewed literature on the current Australian recruitment context. The review documents how economic drivers have reshaped recruitment as a form of employer branding and a process increasingly reliant on technology, social media, outsourcing and recruitment metrics. The practitioner literature reveals the new style 'science of recruitment sourcing', including the introduction of job boards, job board aggregators, applicant tracking software, online interviewing and recruitment process outsourcing. Employers' use of employee value propositions, employer of choice and other branding strategies are presented. The paper highlights the shortage of peer-reviewed literature documenting the particular Australian experience, and concludes with a discussion of a comparative research agenda.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - What does it mean having difficult conversations in
           the workplace?: An exploratory literature review
    • Abstract: Kippist, Louise; Duarte, Fernanda
      Difficult conversations in the workplace are conversations that can potentially make people feel uncomfortable, generate conflict or detrimentally affect relationships and productivity in work settings. While this topic has been significantly researched from a healthcare organisation's perspective, there is a paucity of scholarly works on difficult conversations that can be applied to other types of workplaces. This paper paves the way for this kind of research by providing a literature review that highlights prominent themes relating to difficult conversations in the healthcare field, and also in the few existing works that analyse this phenomenon from a management studies perspective.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - Union revitalisation: A review and a research agenda
    • Abstract: Balasubramanian, Girish; Sarkar, Santanu
      Unionised workforce has declined over the past decades across the globe. The inclement conditions have compelled the trade unions to take on coping mechanisms, which has given rise to a separate strand of research on a theme known as 'union revitalisation'. Regardless of nearly two decades of research, there is a multiplicity of definitions. Union revitalisation has been conceptualised both as a process and an outcome. It has been examined as a phenomenon, an activity carried out by unions, and has been examined through lenses of power and influence. The various strategies adopted by trade unions are a part of the union revitalisation rhetoric. In this paper we critically examined these union revitalisation, conceptualisations and strategies. We argue for broadening the definition and scope of revitalisation studies so as to include workers who are often neglected and marginalised. Since our understanding of revitalisation is formed based on studies in the developed economy context, we argue for a developing economy perspective to advance our understanding of the 'union revitalisation' expression by debating from a developing economy perspective.

  • Volume 15 Issue 1 - Neither office nor home: Coworking as an emerging
           workplace choice
    • Abstract: Ross, Peter; Ressia, Susan
      This study examines, reviews and provides insights from a recent research project that focuses on a range of new and related work practices that have been dubbed 'coworking', a rapidly emerging workplace phenomenon characterised by open-space work environments that lie between working from home and working in a traditional office environment. It analyses the factors that are driving the increasing use of coworking centres and seeks to better classify the often eclectic range of organisations that presently operate under the coworking moniker. While much of the coworker research to date has focused on links between collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship between unaffiliated 'free-lance' coworkers, this paper further considers how public and private sector organisations are using the services of coworking centres as an alternative to home-based telework. This research suggests that coworking centres are occupying an increasingly important niche area as an alternative workplace of choice for an emerging new cohort of workers and are therefore a highly relevant area of research in relation to the future of work in an era of deregulated labour markets, telework and rapid technological change.

  • Volume 15 Issue 1 - The role of innate characteristics in enhancing team
           development
    • Abstract: Chapman, Geoffrey R; Fitzgerald, JAnneke
      While existing literature provides much insight into instinct and team development as separate concepts, there are limited studies that combine these areas to investigate the role of innate characteristics in team development. This paper discusses the effects of implementing a profiling tool based on innate characteristics, and the potential benefits this practice may have for organisational teams. Using longitudinal case research, the study presents findings from eight teams across four organisations, comparing the development of teams that implemented the profiling tool versus teams that did not. The findings suggest that a greater awareness of innate characteristics can result in accelerated team development, particularly for new teams. This acceleration is achieved through the reduction and resolution of conflict, and an increased understanding of working styles, which enables more efficient communication. These findings have theoretical implications for the field of human resource management and practical implications for managers in organisational environments.

  • Volume 15 Issue 1 - In search of freedom: The legacies of management
           innovations for the experience of work and employment
    • Abstract: Dawson, Patrick
      Since the industrial revolution there have been a number of significant innovations in management that have increasingly tightened controls on employee behaviour and reduced the freedom for independent action in the performance of tasks in the workplace. Taylorism, Organisational Development, Business Process Engineering and Total Quality Management are just some of the innovations that have directly or unintentionally limited the space for employee engagement, even when promoting manifest intentions of empowerment and involvement. Time and work disciplines continue to regulate activities with new procedural and technical controls being developed and used in monitoring and evaluating immediate and remote behaviours in collecting data on the auditable achievements of employees. In an accelerating world where creativity, innovation and change are central to the hyper competition of business, concerns for employees rather than shareholder value should take centre stage but remain unvoiced and constrained by conventional management thinking. Innovation for excellence is witnessed by the stress of open surveillance, the strains of increasing workloads and the expectations (self, peer-group and organisational) to meet these standards of excellence (which are often set above average thresholds) that ultimately dehumanises and degrades employees' experience of work. It is argued that the rhetoric of autonomy and participation is being increasingly unmasked in a world of tightening budgets and work intensification where employees are required to take on more 'efficient' methods of work that enables organisations to capture quantifiable and transparent performance data. There is a small but growing call for more humane organisations that reduce oppressive controls, enabling space and freedom for self-management in the performance of tasks and activities, for new forms of social business and for replacing the economic with a more social model of work. This represents a major and difficult challenge requiring organisations to off-load the legacies from the tools and techniques of 20th century management (that are continually modified and repackaged as something new) which simply serve to stifle creativity, inhibit innovation and limit human initiative that are all critical to developments, not only to more human-oriented organisations, but also to developing more flexible and innovative business organisations for the future.

  • Volume 15 Issue 1 - Supporting a relational approach to feedback on
           assessments: The unintended impacts of institutional influences on student
           feedback
    • Abstract: Bye, Jayne; Fallon, Wayne
      This study of student experiences of feedback on assessments draws attention to two different constructions around understanding feedback. When viewed as a product, feedback takes a transactional approach and acts 'as a one-way telling'. By contrast, the relational approach to feedback requires dialogue and is influenced by both context and relationship between the students and academic. This study makes connections with an emerging strand of literature which focuses on the relational dimension as a means of shedding new light on a field of practice that, despite the research in the area, remains an intractable problem. While the data supports the emerging literature, and shows that students value the relational elements of feedback, this paper also considers the institutional influences that impede academic practice which challenges the transactional and fosters the relational dimensions of feedback.

           Satisfaction Affecting on Hotel Employee Retention: A Comparison Study
           between Management and Operational Employees
    • Abstract: Churintr, Puangpen
      A significant problem in the tourism industry is the lack of skilled employees. This study aims to investigate the influence of perceived organizational culture, stress, and job satisfaction on hotel employee retention. This study surveys 355 hotel employees in the Upper South of Thailand including 261 operational and 94 management hotel employees, respectively. Using structural equation, the results indicate that the low retention is an important problem. Data from in-depth interviews was used as supplement to the survey data. For employees at the operational level, perceived organizational culture is a more important factor than job satisfaction. On the other hand, for employees at management level, job satisfaction is more important than perceived organizational culture. Stress has no effect on the employee retention of both levels. The results of this study shed light on using tools to support the retention of skilled hotel employees.

  • Volume 10 Issue 2 - Employees' Perceptions of Trade Unions in Unionised
           Companies: A Survey in Malaysia
    • Abstract: Che Rose, Raduan; Kumar, Naresh; Ramasamy, Nagiah
      This paper contributes to the understanding of barriers to trade unionism in Malaysia by analysing the perspectives of employees from unionised companies. Employees' perceptions are somewhat positive about their job and work environment and these could be a factor in explaining their non-membership in unions. The survey analysis revealed that non-union employees do not view their unions favourably and perhaps it raises doubts among employees on the ability of unions to protect workplace issues critical to workers. Conceivably this is an indictment of the ineffectiveness of trade unions' leadership. The instrumental perspective appears very prominently in the struggles of unions, and to a lesser extent, the political/ideological perspective. Employees seem to lack knowledge concerning trade unions, indicating unions' failure to reach out to the broad workforce and it is a possible problem in union organising. Union officials should pay more attention to communicating their union's unique characteristics and impact at the workplace. It also offers opportunities to trade unionists to convince the non-union employees in unionised companies for collective representation.

  • Volume 10 Issue 2 - A Social Exchange Model of the Employment Relationship
           Based on Keeping Tally of the Psychological Contract
    • Abstract: Jepsen, Denise M; Rodwell, John J
      This paper serves to review and integrate social exchange and organisational justice theory with regard to the employment relationship. Social exchange relationships are represented by employees' perceptions of workplace inequity represented by their psychological contract and evaluated using organisational justice rules. Employees have in-role and extra-role behavioural responses and cognitive responses to inequity. Behavioural and cognitive responses are moderated by the employee's perceptions of organisational justice. Much employee performance, commitment, engagement, retention and turnover may be explained by this comprehensive model.

           Canada: The Role of Information and Social Networks
    • Abstract: Beji, Kamel
      Quantitative and qualitative indicators of recent immigrants' socio-professional integration in Canada and particularly in Quebec show considerable disadvantages compared to natives. Informational biases that influence the migratory project can be at the root of difficulties in their social and professional integration. By offering a critique of the 'perfect information' hypothesis and by using the social networks approach, the aim of this article is to analyse the nature of informational flows and the impact of their circulation by social networks on the socio-professional integration of newcomers.

  • Volume 10 Issue 1 - Sustainability Reporting: Rhetoric Versus Reality?
    • Abstract: Pennington, Lenore K; More, Elizabeth
      Organisational sustainability requires companies to incorporate environmental, social and economic objectives into their operations. In response, there has been a notable increase in organisations reporting on environmental and social issues. This paper argues that sustainability reports cannot be relied on to credibly reflect companies' actions and commitment to environmental and social sustainability. With questions around reporting organisations' genuine commitment to sustainability, this paper reviews other frameworks to assess organisations' progress towards sustainability, and recommends a comprehensive model.

But few people have paid specific attention to labour relations in the public sector, with the exception of some practitioners such as Ow and Ma (1996). One important point to note regarding the public sector union in Singapore is that it faces a unique situation as the public sector in Singapore is well known for its efficiency and absence of corruption. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the orientation of the public sector union in Singapore from the political economy approach, and to show that although the public sector union is constitutionally micro-focused in orientation, it is in macro-focused in operation. The plan of the paper is as follows: We begin with a review of the literature on labour relations in the public sector, and identify the various models of the public sector. Next, we give a brief description of the labour movement in Singapore as the public sector union is a significant affiliated union of the National Trades Union Congress, the peak union confederation in Singapore. This is followed by a discussion of the public sector union and an examination of its strategic orientation with regard to the public sector operating in the open and new economy.

  • Volume 9 Issue 1 - Rise and Decline in Work Stoppage Statistics
    • Abstract: Perry, LJ
      This paper examines work stoppage statistics for the period 1900-2006 for the contemporary world's 21 largest economies. Attention is drawn to the large number of missing observations and the overall poor historical quality of these data. Despite this, it is shown for most economies there has been a marked drop in stoppages in the last two or three decades. This applies particularly to economies with data stretching back to earlier (pre-World War II) decades. It is argued that it is important to establish and maintain high standards of reporting on stoppages statistics regardless of whether stoppages are on the rise or in decline.

  • Volume 8 Issue 2 - Students' Approaches to Poster Making
    • Abstract: Allan, Cameron; Bailey, Janis; Pointon, Leigh
      This paper describes innovative assessment practices in a first-year course in employment relations that includes a poster assessment item. Starting from the premise that the term 'text' is more than just print material and includes various forms of visual communication, this paper argues that teaching and learning methods need to incorporate visual forms of communication and assessment. The paper describes the role of student posters as a means of communicating to a wider audience the conclusions of a workplace-based project. In particular, it describes and analyses five basic approaches students used to create their posters. Drawing from the communication literature on the role of pictures in the processing of print texts, film theory, and the teaching and learning literature, the paper analyses the usefulness of the various approaches taken by students. The outcomes of the project are a better knowledge of how students conceptualise the task and create their posters. This will assist tertiary teachers who use poster assessment to understand the dynamics of the task and to guide students in creating richer and more meaningful posters.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - Reinventing Meatworkers: Old Skills but New Careers for
           the Twenty-first Century?
    • Abstract: Jerrard, Marjorie; Donohue, Ross; Kimberley, Nell; Cooney, Richard
      The Australian meat processing industry is facing one of its largest challenges ever, the attraction and retention of all categories of workers. At the heart of this challenge is the fact that the industry centres around "dirty work" so that all types of employment are tainted, including management and professional occupations. There is a need to "reinvent" the perception of meat industry work if the industry is to avoid becoming reliant upon temporary workers and is to cut its employee turnover costs. To do this, transformational change will be required and ongoing collaboration from all industry parties, including the union, is the starting point. In South Australia, the industry has initiated its first phase of change based on a strategy to attract and retain workers to the industry; however, this strategy fails to address the issue of "dirty work" that stands in the way of turning jobs into careers.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - 55 + and Working in an Established Rural Regional
           Australian Labour Market
    • Abstract: Hicks, John; Basu, PK; Sappey, Richard B
      In rural regional Australia, the combination of an ageing population and rural-based employment, particularly for farmers (including farm managers), indicates labour markets which pose policy challenges for governments. The rural regional labour market in Australia analysed in this paper includes relatively high levels of farmers and it is argued that this group is ageing more rapidly relative to other groups of workers. This is because there is a reduced propensity amongst the younger generation to move into farming and a higher propensity of older workers to stay on in the workforce. While the employment prospects of older farmers continue to be relatively high, their income prospects appear to be relatively low. The occupation is complicated by the nature of their personal assets which can be both a home and a business asset and which for those with children presents succession problems. We argue that with declining farm incomes the opportunity to realize capital invested in their farm is diminished requiring farmers to work on well beyond the age at which others are able to retire and raising the issue of how their inevitable need for welfare assistance can be delivered and funded.
