This module addresses the important role that effective and ethical people management practices can have in supporting and sustaining successful CSR strategies. Indeed the thematic argument of this module is that successful CSR needs and requires an approach to human resource management that places the individual person at the heart of the employment relationship. The module argues that CSR strategy cannot be divorced from our internal people management strategies.
The module discusses issues which are highly pertinent and timely. In recent times, there have been a number of high profile cases presented in the media which have highlighted unethical and exploitative practices. Furthermore there is empirical evidence demonstrating an increasing tendency towards job insecurity, precarious work, stagnating wages, controversial employment contracts such as the growth of part-time and zero hours contracts (which are often not in the interest of employees). Even those in full-time and secure employment are often experiencing work intensification, declining terms and conditions and greater levels of stress.
The module challenges learning partners to reflect on how our organisations can embrace and adopt people management practices which encourage and engage our employees within the framework of responsible and ethical management.
1. Contextualizing and conceptualizing HRM and the intersection with CSR.2. Examining the external political, economic, social and environmental factors affecting approaches to people management.3. Losing the human from our organizations: the profit maxim; short-termism; neo-liberalism.4. Interrogating organization culture.5. Power, leadership and management.6. Putting ethics back into people management: rhetoric or reality7. Well-being, non-financial rewards, equality diversity and inclusion.8. Autonomy, voice, involvement and participation.9. Organization citizenship.10. Employee engagement as a route to improved outcomes.11. Resource based view of strategy and Organization capabilities.
Delivery of the module is based on a mix of lectures, seminars, and discussion groups supported by weblearn materials and directed learning activities.

There are two summative assessments in this module based on (i) a group presentation and (ii) a 3,500 word (max) written paper, in two parts (see below)
Firstly, there is a comprehensive and critical 3,000-word (max) essay that focuses on a current issue (different from the group presentation), involving CSR, Ethics, HRM and people management. The essay choices each address a specific topic area but encompass a number of areas of the syllabus and require a critical orientation, detailed analysis and clear conclusions. It also allows the student to include practical case study material if appropriate.
Secondly, there is a short reflective statement (max 500-words) of personal learning and the contribution made by the module to the student’s professional development. This 500 reflection is in addition to the 3,000-word paper and is attached as an appendix. It is not assessed due to the personal nature, but must be submitted in order for the assessed work to pass.
