CfP: Special Issue of the German Journal of Human Resource Management (HRM in Family Firms)

November 28th, 2016

The German Journal of Human Resource Management (Zeitschrift für Personalforschung) is seeking for proposals for a Special Issue. We invite submissions that are conceptual, empirical (qualitative or quantitative, or mixed) or methodological in nature. The focus of the papers may include but is not limited to:

  • Practices of HRM in family firms
  • HRM and family firm growth, development and change
  • HR managers and practitioners in family firms
  • Theory of HRM in family firms

We welcome submissions that take the unique characteristics of family firms into account and that move beyond the idea of one-size-fits-all ‘best practices’ by addressing how family firms develop HR practices, take advantage of them, and bundle their practices into HR systems. By exploring these areas we hope to sharpen the theoretical underpinnings of the debate on HRM in family firms. Moreover, we seek to contribute to an understanding of if/how family firms use HR practices to proactively address environmental dynamics, demographic change or innovation.

Deadline for the submission of extended abstracts: 31.10.2017

CfP: 10th International Conference in Critical Management Studies 2017 (Sub-theme: HRM: Powerful Player or Powerless Heretic?)

November 28th, 2016

The focus of this sub-theme at the 10th International Conference in Critical Management Studies 2017 (which will take place during July 3-5) is the question whether HRM is a powerful player or a powerless heretic. This sub-theme addresses pertinent questions with respect to the power of the HR department. The organizers are especially interested in the following three areas of questions:

  • What role does the HR department play in the organisations’ ‘orchestra’? How powerful/powerless, dominating/dominated, or orthodox/heretic are HR departments vis-á-vis other functional departments?
  • How do HR managers deal with their role ambiguity? Do they focus on the business case or do they concentrate on arguments derived from a socially-embedded perspective? What consequences arise for their relative power within the organisation?
  • What are the consequences for the HR department arising from new forms of work and employment and HR specific trends? Do they lead to more or less power within the organisation?

These examples are not exhaustive, empirical papers based on novel or sound theoretical bases demonstrating a strong link between theory and empirical work on this theme are also welcomed.

CfP: 10th International Conference in Critical Management Studies 2017 (Sub-theme: Implications and consequences of employee share ownership on corporate governance)

November 16th, 2016

The focuses of this sub-theme at the 10th International Conference in Critical Management Studies 2017 (which will take place during July 3-5) are implications and consequences of employee share ownership on corporate governance. The sub-theme aims to advance our empirical and theoretical knowledge about organizational ways of employee involvement at the corporate governance level of firms and its interaction with already existing institutions of employee participation in the decision making and control of firms, and to learn about the behavior of this particular type of employee participation, of different stakeholder groups, and of individuals in such contexts in different institutional and national settings. We invite theoretical as well as empirical studies based on qualitative and/or quantitative methods that focus on the various forms of employee owners’ individual and collective actions.
