About this Unit

This unit focuses on different perspectives of employment relations and the cooperation and conflict that varies between workplaces. There is a key role that institutions beyond the workplace play in shaping people management policy and practice within organisations, and a wide variety of models to emerge, meaning that outcomes are less predictable and relationships must be handled with great care.

What will you learn

You will critically evaluate different perspectives on employment relations and the cooperation and conflict that varies between workplaces, including employer strategies towards trade unions and their fitness for purpose. You will justify the growth of low quality jobs and the decline of high-quality roles in different parts of the economy and how to support voice that will contribute to improved levels of organisational performance and employee outcomes. You will also critically analyse the role of collective bargaining in determining pay, and review the advantages and disadvantages of arbitration, conciliation and mediation and their role in the resolution of work disagreements. Finally, you will examine the design and implementation of grievance and disciplinary procedures to help mitigate risk and resolve problems.

  • —are experienced people practitioners
  • —are working in a senior people practice role and wish to extend and deepen their skills and understanding to shape strategy, policy and people
