Priority Research Area: High Performance Work Systems
Research Director: Dr Tony Dundon
The goals of this priority research area are to examine the strategies and characteristics of high performance workplaces and their diffusion through organisational learning and social partnership, to assess the degree to which innovation and effectiveness are impeded by a growing `representation gap' at workplace level, to generate new sources of primary data, leading to an all-Ireland Workplace Employee Relations Survey, and to contribute to an emerging research and teaching focus in the management of human resources.

PRTLI_HPWS: "High Performance Work Systems in Ireland"
eNableSME: "eBusiness Enablement for Irish SMEs: the role of Human Resource Information Systems"
