Abstract

This paper discusses five propositions that aim to reinterpret roles in contemporary Human Resources Management (HRM) as pro-business, inclusive, focused on the long-term sustainability of organizations and individuals, and beyond the immediate interests of shareholders. The propositions place relations between people at the center of HRM. Doing so requires an ethical and thorough analysis of the field and of organizations,
which evolve and commit to new priorities. In fact, HRM has not yet clarified its role in sustainable management, beyond organizational boundaries and environmental issues, and is still at the margins of socio-environmental responsibility strategies. The debate allows for an approach that goes beyond how companies perpetuate social and enviromental issues in the world of work and society .
