Workshop "Paradoxes and tensions in HRM: Exploring the field and moving ahead"
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. We are interested in papers that address questions such as: - What tensions are of relevance for HRM and why/how are they (not) experienced by HRM and employees? - How are these paradoxical tensions dealt with in HRM today and how could they be dealt with? By exploring the usefulness of frameworks for paradox from organization theory for HRM research, we hope to sharpen the theoretical underpinning in the debate on tensions in HRM. Moreover, we seek to contribute to an understanding of if/how HR actors can address tensions proactively and positively – instead of being paralyzed by the (fear of) unfolding dynamics, victimizing HR managers and employees, or ignoring and suppressing tensions.
