Title

Core features for the design of remuneration systems for sustainable human resource management during the Covid-19 pandemic: Polish companies’ experiences


Abstract

Fulfilling the objectives of sustainable development aimed at combining economic, social and ecological objectives is supported by the concept of Sustainable Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM practices enable the maintenance, renewal and restoration of human resources. The article fills a research gap on the characteristics of remuneration systems in SHRM. The purpose of this study is to reveal the remuneration practices that allow organisations to implement sustainable human resource management’s characteristics in the COVID-19 crisis. The research uses qualitative data from Polish organisations collected through semi-structured interviews with 15 managers responsible for human resource management (HRM). It shows a diversity of remuneration practices during the COVID-19 crisis such as focusing the remuneration systems on the long-term goals of the organisation and combining social goals with business pragmatism.
