Abstract


This article reports results of qualitative research that examines how the literature available of human resource management (HRM) addresses the new characteristics of employment in Brazil in the 2000-2015 period; with an aging population, a reduction in the share of young people and increased educational level of the workforce, a drop in the number of non-employed, higher income for workers and a high rate of turnover. In employment relations, the trade unions obtained real raises above inflation and strikes have returned. Through a panel of specialists and literature on human resources management in Brazil, the study reveals a distance between the subjects of labor market, employment relations and HRM. Two hypotheses could explain these findings: (H1) labor relation and labor market issues are of little value to HRM; and (H2) HRM and employment relations are treated as different professional areas and fields of knowledge, and are poorly integrated in organizations.
