The trust crucible: HRM processes catalytic role in crystallising trust issues within the organizational experience.
In: British Academy of Management 2010 Conference, Sept, 2010, Sheffield.
Trust is vital for the long term survival and success of organization (Barney & Hansen, 1994). Human Resource Management (HRM) policies and practices are suggested to be among the most influential for trust development within organizations (Searle & Skinner, In Press). Employees and potential recruits form a significant group of stakeholders and their experiences and perceptions of the organization are directly affected by the strategies, or lack of them, that an organization puts in place and the ways in which they are operationalised. This double symposium brings together scholars from different perspectives and disciplines, to discuss how HR is a unique context creating a crucible in which tacit assumptions of trust are crystallised. In this symposium distinct aspects of HR cycle for entry to exit are our focus through both conceptual and empirical findings from public and private sector contexts.
