Should Managers Treat their Team Members Equally or Equitably? A CoBS Research Pod.
Human Resource Management is a managerial challenge that has to consider the contrasting notions of uniformity and individuality – should managers treat their employees equally or equitably? Reconciling these two views requires managers to harness the potential of their team members in a way that takes into account disparities in expectations, capabilities, and contributions that arise out of such basic differences as gender, personality, education and work experience. Not so easy – but there’s a way!
Professor Na Fu of Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin, shares her practical research on the subject.
