Contrast Between HRM and IR

HRM - Human Resource Management

IR - Industrial Relations

HRM - There are only two important parties viz., employee and employer.

IR - These are four important parties viz., employees ,employer ,trade unions and government

HRM - Formulation of objectives ,policies ,procedure and programs of human resources and implement them

IR - The implementation of HRM policies results in IR.

HRM - Reformulates the objectives, policies etc ,based on industrial conflicts which are the outcome of unsound industrial relations.

IR- The sound IR contributes to the organizational goals. The unsound IR result in industrial conflicts demanding for change and reformulation of HRM objectives and goals

HRM - Individual employee contacts with the immediate superior.

IR - Employees contact even the top management as a group.

HRM - Grievance and disciplinary procedures are resorted to, to solve the employee-employer conflicts.

IR - Collective bargaining and forms of industrial conflicts are resorted to ,to solve the problems,

HRM is the overall management of all resources including workers, staff, , executives, Top management and even suppliers and customers. Industrial Relations in practice means the relations between actual work force and management of the organization.. Therefore I am giving below some of the salient features of IR.

· Industrial relations are governed by the system of rules and regulations concerning work, workplace and working community.

· The main purpose is to maintain harmonious relations between employees and employer by solving their problems through grievance procedure and collective bargaining.

· Trade Unions is another important institution in the Industrial relations. Trade unions influence and shape the industrial relations through collective bargaining.

· Industrial relations are the relations mainly between employees and employers.

· These relations emphasis on accommodating other parties interest , values and needs . Parties develop skills of adjusting to and cooperating with each other.
