HR Division

ABOUT THE DIVISION

The Human Resources (HR) Division within the Academy of Management is dedicated to a better understanding of how work organizations can perform more effectively by better management of their human resources. That is, we are interested in understanding, identifying, and improving the effectiveness of HR practices (whether in the U.S. or in other countries) in the various functions and activities carried out as part of HR, and determining the optimal fit between these practices and organizational strategies, cultures, and performance. Major topics include acquisition, allocation, development, utilization, maintenance, and evaluation of humans as resources in work organizations. The emphasis is on the study of the employment relationship at the individual, group, organizational, societal, and cross-cultural levels of analysis, and the impact of this relationship on outcomes critical to the organization and its applicants, both present and past employees, and their representatives.

As one of the Academy of Management’s largest divisions with over 3500 members, we serve as a gathering place for academics and practitioners to create networks aimed at discovering and disseminating state-of-the-art HR knowledge.
