Purpose Literature encompassing sustainable leadership and developing leaders sustainably are still in infancy (Lambert, 2011). Nevertheless indications identify leadership as a vital cog in achieving sustainable organisations. Sustainable leadership can allow a fast, resilient response which is competitive and appealing to all stakeholders (Avery and Bergsteiner, 2011a, b).

The paper extends current thinking by contrasting the research of academic scholars on the evolution of the human resources management (HRM) profession in the UK and USA. It also presents implications of the data for the future, in practice...

This study develops the concept of dialogic conversational practice (dialogic CP) as a conduit for effective engagement strategies and productive working arrangements.

We then outline the key dimensions of dialogic CP, and propose a conceptual framework grounded in the line ma...

The study explores how HR professionals see their role in relation to ethical stewardship of the organisation, and the factors that inhibit its execution. A survey of 113 UK-based HR professionals, working in both domestic and multinational corporations, was conduc...

Media management is a central element of Human Resource Management (HRM) with increasing relevance. On one side, it is obvious that most HR activities have connections to media. More and more HRM activities need a communication strategy for internal and external audiences. There are many typical questions in this context: how can companies transport their employer brands? How can companies find a global language policy? Why is a company the employer of choice? How can the Employee Value Proposit...
