TUC sells partnership as way forward for HR

first_img Previous Article Next Article TUC sells partnership as way forward for HROn 9 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today The TUC has urged HR to champion union partnership agreements aftercriticising a lack of commitment by employers to the partnership agenda. John Monks, general secretary of the TUC, speaking at the launch of thePartnership Institute’s first annual report, claims many employers are notinterested in working with unions and operate outdated confrontational businessphilosophies. Monks believes partnerships help develop effective working relationshipsbetween employers and unions which improve companies’ performance andemployees’ working conditions. “A hell of a lot of employers do not believe in partnership agreements.What motivates them is shareholder value. Many are not interested in humanvalue yet the quality and attitude of their people are absolutely essential totheir business,” he said. “Employers do not want to share power but want total control. They donot realise that by sharing power they have a greater influence on what goeson.” Monks said that by supporting the partnership agenda, HR will be able toincrease its influence. “It is a tremendous opportunity for the profession. The partnershipconcept is a commitment by an organisation’s chief executive to put peoplefirst, so the HR function is right at the centre of the business,” hesaid. “Partnerships increase the importance of the HR function as they putpeople and the way they are treated at the heart of an organisation.” Monks said partnerships can make the difference between companies that putpeople at the centre of the company and those that just say they do. The institute, which is the TUC’s partnership consultancy, helped implementpartnerships at 59 organisations in its first year and predicts a turnover of£250,000 for 2002. www.tuc.org.ukBy Paul Nelson Comments are closed.
