SIMPLIFIED INSIGHTS ON SUSTAINABLE HRM
The concept of sustainability is gaining attention in the HR field, and it's influencing the creation of a sustainable HRM approach to employees. However, experts have paid very little attention towards attainment of sustainability goals through human resources of the organisation. Despite the current spike in interest of scholars in this area, the literature on the subject is scattered and varied. The study is primarily descriptive in nature and primarily focuses on presenting the concept of sustainable HRM in a simplified way. Based on extant literature this study provides DePrins’ model of sustainable HRM and dimensions of sustainable HRM. This study details five dimensions of Sustainable HRM: justice and equality, sustainable HR practices, profitability dimension, employee well-being and workplace spirituality. In addition, the paper contributes to the existing literature by outlining direction for further research in the area of sustainable human resource management. Finally, the report offers suggestions for HR strategies for sustainable organisations that could be fruitful.
