Call for papers for a workshop on:
Paradoxes and tensions in HRM:
Exploring the field and moving ahead
February 14-15 2013; University of Innsbruck/Austria
Currently, we observe a rising interest of HRM scholars in understanding the nature of tensions in the management of workforce. While the terms duality, paradox, ambiguity and tension are widely used in contemporary HRM research, the underlying concepts and theoretical assumptions are rarely explored systematically. In this workshop we seek to explore recent developments in studying tensions in HRM and theoretical perspectives that help to increase our understanding of tensions, their origin and dynamics in HRM, and how they can be dealt with. Deadline for abstract submission is November 15, 2013.
