The Human Resource Management and Employment Relations Group is involved in the provision of research, teaching and commentary on the changing world of work internationally and in Ireland. Drawn from diverse disciplinary and professional backgrounds and from a number of countries, members of the Group are among the leading European and Irish scholars in the field. They share a commitment to independent, critical and evidence-based research and teaching and their work in these areas takes account of the interests of all the main stakeholders in the world of work: employers, employees, trade unions and the wider community.

The Group regularly engages in public commentary and debate and also contributes to policy development.

Through our undergraduate programmes and postgraduate taught programmes we aspire to provide for our students an environment that facilitates the acquisition of knowledge and professional skills for entry into the workplace.

On the international stage, the Human Resource Management and Employment Relations Group at UCD is networked through its association with the world-leading Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) School at Cornell University, New York and through its participation in the European Master’s in Labour Studies Programme with leading European universities that include Milan, Amsterdam, Louvain-La-Neuve, the London School of Economics, Warwick Business School and a range of leading institutions.
