Identity, trust and the employee's HRM cycle

Searle, Rosalind; Price, Deborah; Dittmann, Quirin and Buckley, Finian (2011). Identity, trust and the employee's HRM cycle. In: BAM 2011, Building and sustaining high performance organisations in a challenging environment, 13-15 Sep, Aston, Birmingham.


This symposium examines the changes in identity and trust through seminal points within the employee's journey through the HRM cycle. Using Searle & Skinner's (2011) employee HRM cycle we explore the shifts in identity at pre-entry, change and exit and juxtapose this with the maintenance of identity during more status quo periods. We show how potential recruits and employees form a significant group of stakeholders, whose 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 symposium brings together scholars from different perspectives and disciplines, to show how identity and trust are intertwined.
