Title

Advances in the implementation of the model of sustainable human resource management: Polish companies’ experiences


Abstract

Sustainable development is a modern idea of civilization development born out of the need to mitigate and prevent adverse effects of economic activity. Its implementation forces the necessity to change the philosophy of managing organizations by including social and ecological goals in their strategy. Significant support for the implementation of the strategy aimed at achieving the above-mentioned objectives is the concept of Sustainable Human Resource Management. This is due to the fact that personnel processes play an important role in translating sustainable development policy into practice. The purpose of the research is to systematize knowledge regarding sustainable human resource management and to evaluate the scope of practical implementation of the new model of the HR function in Polish Enterprises. The research used a critical analysis of the literature and a diagnostic survey method. The survey was conducted among a random, representative population of 300 Polish enterprises. In the course of the study, it was established that in Polish conditions the model of Sustainable Human Resource Management is implemented in a fragmented way.
