Should Managers Treat their Team Members Equally or Equitably? A CoBS Research Pod

Human Resource Management is a managerial challenge that has to consider the contrasting notions of uniformity and individuality should managers treat their employees equally or equitably? Reconciling these two views requires managers to harness the potential of their team members in a way that takes into account disparities in expectations, capabilities, and contributions that arise out of such basic differences as gender, personality, education and work experience. Not so easy but there’s a way!

Prof. Na Fu of Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin, shares her practical research on the subject.
