Personal profile

Personal Statement

I teach and research in several areas of HRM and employment relations. I am particularly interested in service employment, service triangle, customer (mis)behaviour, industrial conflict and front-line management. 

Research Interests

Areas of research interest include:

Service work: The political, economic, and social structures and dynamics within the employment relationship. My interests focus on employment and the labour process in service organizations such retailing and hospitality.

Service Triangle: Particular interest of the role of the customer and the impact on the labour process and the organization of (service) work. I am interested in debates related to customer misbehaviour and abuse by customer.

Organizational Misbehaviour: Interest on Control-resistance debates with the wider business structures of contemporary capitalist economies. General interest on labour process theory, the manifestation of industrial conflict and debates on organizational misbehaviour

Customer abuse and sexual harassment in the service industry: I am particularly interested in the embedded problem of customer abuse, violence, and sexual harassment in the service industry, with particular interest in the gay tourism and gay hospitality industry, which remains an underexplored, and underdeveloped theme in research

Line managers and managerial labour process: I am interested in the organization of the managerial work and the managerial labour process, with particular interest on the organization of the front-line service management work and the role of line managers in HRM

Attendance at work and absence management: I am interested in debates related to absence management and workplace attendance across different sectors and contexts.
