Economist Questions: What role does poor management play in “the British Disease” - and is there a cure?
Since the late 1960s, UK productivity growth has been weak and poor management is seen as one of the main causes. In recent years Economists have waded into this debate, and in this episode Peter Urwin asks Prof. Richard Saundy what he thinks of recent findings. The discussion begins with a reminder of the fractious history of UK industrial relations. They then consider recent evidence on what makes a good manager and ask why there seems to be so little sharing of good managerial practice both between, and even within, organisations. Concluding with a discussion of what the ‘cure’ might look like, they consider work of the PrOPEL Hub and ESRC funded studies that aim to improve management through new approaches to training.

Economist Questions: Workplace Conflict, The End of Us and Them?
Recent decades have seen radical change in the way that conflict is dealt with in UK workplaces. Collective industrial action has been replaced by pursuit of individual employment rights through litigation, via Employment Tribunals (ETs). Richard Saundry is Professor of HRM & Employment Relations at Plymouth University Business School. He has written extensively on workplace conflict and brings a wealth of experience, including time spent at NUM HQ at the start of the 1990s. Peter and him consider why employees in certain types of firm report higher levels of conflict; whether ‘vexatious’ ET claims represent a significant cost to firms and discuss how conflict is resolved in the modern workplace. In this modern setting, what role is there for the union movement and what are the implications of Brexit?

Share Radio Morning

Is discrimination holding you back from a promotion?
Promotion is a fairly touchy topic to bring up with your employer. But despite the sensitivity of the subject, it may be even more difficult for some as research shows that one in five workers face inequality when trying to climb up the ladder. But who exactly is this discrimination affecting? That's what our reporter Anviksha Patel asked Nicola Sullivan, Senior Director at Lee Hecht Harrison Penna.
