  • 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 - 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 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 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.

  • 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 - 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 - 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 14 Issue 2 - Public administration: Aspects and systematic
           viewpoint on development of human resource and education
    • Abstract: Choonhaklai, Sirirat; Rugchatjaroen, Krish
      This paper reviews and assesses a PhD program in public policy and management in a Thai university. It was found that contexts, inputs, processes and products were connected to a certain extent. However, an overall conclusion could not be drawn because not all achievements could be measured at the time of the study because as yet there has not been a graduate from the program. The gap between expectation and reality was narrow, which means that actual performance generally was as expected. Human resources and education are the program administrative committee's main responsibility. The committee is required to comply with the requirements of the Thailand Qualification Framework for Higher Education by conducting an analysis of social and population contexts, implementing, evaluating and improving the program.

  • Volume 14 Issue 2 - Interactive effects of psychological capital and
           perceived support in developing trust and commitment among Indian IT
           executives
    • Abstract: Shukla, Amit; Rai, Himanshu
      The literature suggests that employees' perceptions about organisational inputs play an important role in determining subsequent reactions and, inter alia, the long term employment relations. The build-up of perceptions is predominantly guided by employees' positive mental disposition. The present study takes a step forward in testing this notion. The study explores the role of perceived organisational support (POS) in developing organisational trust and organisational commitment and the moderating effect of psychological capital therein. A self-reported questionnaire survey was conducted among 368 junior and mid-level IT executives from India. POS was found to be positively related to the aforementioned variables and the relationships witnessed attenuation at higher levels of psychological capital. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed and a future course of research is suggested.

  • Volume 14 Issue 2 - Professional identity: Enabler or barrier to clinical
           engagement?
    • Abstract: Kippist, Louise; Fitzgerald, Janna Anneke
      The purpose of this paper is to obtain a better understanding of how leadership is enacted by hybrid doctor-managers (DMs) as well as what engagement strategies hybrid doctor-managers use with their clinical colleagues that may influence organisational objectives being met. This paper provides empirical insights into how hybrid doctor-managers, in their leadership role, engage with their clinical colleagues. The findings suggest that in only a few cases, doctor-managers combine both their organisational and clinical leadership role. As clinical experts, they naturally take on a clinical leadership role, but many fall short in also taking on a managerial leadership role, working towards organisational objectives, such as meeting the key performance indicators, promoting an efficient use of resources and leading organisational change initiatives. We also found that doctor-managers do not have clear role descriptions and that doctors lack managerial qualifications.

  • Volume 14 Issue 2 - New directions in industrial relations research?
    • Abstract: Sappey, Jennifer; Sappey, Richard; Burgess, John
      Traditionally employment (or industrial) relations, has been associated with the management of either collective or individual conflict in the workplace. In recent years, the focus has opened out to consider the benefits of high performance working on productivity, but also the wider social implications for individuals and their dependents. The workplace provides not only the money that we need to support ourselves and our families but it can also provide purpose, status, and friendship, allowing people to develop new skills, both technical and social. The ability of line managers to manage employment relations on a day-to-day basis and to get the best from their staff has implications for innovation, productivity, quality and reliability, and ultimately levels of growth at a national level and our ability to compete on the global stage. With so much invested in work by managers and employees individually, employment relations has never been so important. (Podro, 2011)

  • Volume 14 Issue 1 - Publishing quality and quantity productivity of
           Australian associate professors in the HR field
    • Abstract: Jepsen, Denise M; Spooner, Keri
      Although it is long known that academics must 'publish or perish', there is little information available on actual academic publishing standards. This descriptive study reports the quantity and quality of journal publications of 40 Australian Associate Professors in the field of human resources, industrial relations and organisational behaviour. Analysis of 569 papers indicate those academics have an average 14.23 journal articles, of which 6.2% are in journals ranked A*, 23.4% are in A journals, 26.4% in B, 30.4% are in C ranked journals and 13.4% were in journals not ranked. Findings indicate considerable differences in quantity and quality of journal papers by Associate Professors, with a disproportionate contribution to top ranked journals by Group of Eight academics.

  • Volume 14 Issue 1 - From passive to active learning: A case study using a
           modified team-based learning approach
    • Abstract: Goddard, Anita; Wood, Christa
      This paper reflects on, and evaluates a modified team-based learning (MTBL) approach that attempts to engage students in active involvement in the learning process. A social inclusion project prompted the introduction of different teaching methods that encourage student ownership of, and involvement in their own learning. The MTBL approach was implemented into a second year undergraduate subject and a postgraduate subject in the School of Management and Marketing at the University of Wollongong.

  • Volume 14 Issue 1 - 'Bringing women up to equality with men':
           Paradoxically redressing and reifying gendered recruitment and selection
           practices in Australian sport workplaces?
    • Abstract: O'Shea, Michelle; Toohey, Kristine
      In Australia, as in other developed countries, legislative and policy enactment has, in part, enabled the more equitable involvement of women and minorities, especially in workplace contexts where men and normative masculinities dominate. Despite some meaningful change, many Australian sport workplaces continue to be contexts in which femininities and non-normative masculinities are marginalised and devalued. Using Australian sport organisation recruitment and selection policies and official organisation practices as a research domain this paper interrogates how in subtle and paradoxical ways equal employment opportunity legislation can simultaneously redress and reify gendered recruitment and selection inequities.

  • Volume 14 Issue 1 - Using an online peer review and assessment tool in a
           large undergraduate business subject: Analysing student behaviour and
           performance
    • Abstract: Caddy, Ian
      Assessment has long been seen as an important part of the teaching process for academics as well as the learning process for students. One trend that has emerged in recent times is the use of group assessments and the involvement of students in these group assessments beyond merely producing the object on which they are to be assessed. The study outlined in this paper considers the introduction of a group assessment task into a large undergraduate business subject and the support of this assessment task through the use of an online peer review tool, viz. SPARKPLUS. Analysis of the data captured by SPARKPLUS found that once teething problems with using the tool were corrected there was: (a) a high level of engagement with the peer process although this level of engagement did diminish over the course of the semester; (b) a low level of social loafing although this activity did not diminish despite it been punished in terms of how the assessment marks were calculated; and (c) a moderate impact on the level of performance in the assessment based on different levels of engagement in the peer review process.

  • Volume 13 Issue 2 - The boundaryless career form: Its nature and driving
           forces
    • Abstract: Kuen, Chak Man; Nesbit, Paul L; Ahlstrom, David
      Rapidly changing business environments have led to significant changes in the structures of contemporary organisations. These changes have in turn had a profound impact on employment relationships and careers of employees. For example, most contemporary firms are now unable to offer traditional careers which comprised an orderly progression of promotions and career advancements following the vertical hierarchical structure of the firm and typically occurred in a single large stable firm. In its place a new career model, the boundaryless career, has emerged. This paper outlines the nature of this form of career and reviews the driving forces for its development.

  • Volume 13 Issue 2 - The paradox of employee retention for knowledge
           transfer
    • Abstract: Larkin, Roslyn; Burgess, John
      Employee retention is widely held to positively influence an organisation's knowledge transfer outcomes. This positive relationship is most widely recognised through the impact that employee retention has on increasing a firm's level of the knowledge transfer antecedent, absorptive capacity, thereby increasing the potential value of the stocks of knowledge within the organisation. A paradoxical outcome, however, is discovered when the effect of employee retention on knowledge transfer is considered from the perspective of knowledge flows across the organisation rather than knowledge stocks within. Case study analysis from research conducted in a multinational hotel chain identifies this paradox. Primarily the findings indicate that while employee retention increases individual absorptive capacity it may prevent a relative increase in organisational level absorptive capacity. Further, the creation of knowledge sharing networks is facilitated through longer term retention of staff. However, where they manifest as a result of retention they remain closed to the larger organisation. As a result this paper identifies significant implications for the management of longer term employees' knowledge sharing behaviour.

  • Volume 13 Issue 2 - Assessing suspension of protected industrial action in
           Australian higher education workplaces
    • Abstract: Lyons, Michael
      The 2012 review of the Fair Work Act 2009 concluded there was no need to amend the provisions that authorise the national industrial tribunal to suspend protected industrial action. By highlighting examples from the Australian higher education sector, it is argued that employers use the relevant provisions to achieve a self-interested advantage in collective bargaining negotiations. Orders to suspend industrial action allow an employer to complete essential aspects of the production process, skewing the bargaining process towards employer interests. Therefore legislative change is needed to more precisely strike a balance between the interests of employees engaged in collective bargaining, management interests, and the interests of the community.

  • Volume 13 Issue 2 - Neoliberal employer industrial relations strategies in
           the US and Australian meat industries
    • Abstract: O'Leary, Patrick
      Neoliberalism emerged as a dominant doctrine of political-economic practice during the late 1970s. Its influence over the last three decades on social policy in both Western developed economies, such as the United States of America (USA or US) and Australia, and in developing economies, such as Chile and China, has been widely analysed but its influence on business-level industrial relations strategy is less well-known. Despite this limited understanding, its influence over management strategies cannot be ignored. Therefore, this paper aims to explore what might be regarded as neoliberal management strategies and practices. While this is a very broad canvas, this paper will focus specifically on management industrial relations strategies and practices in the US and Australian meat processing industries.
