This chapter critically assesses the main contribution of the Human Relations School (HRS) and demonstrates how its legacy continues to influence mainstream HRM thinking. An embedded assessment situates the legacy of the HRS within its economic, social and cultural context. In addition, the role of the Harvard Business School in which the HRS developed provides an important context to explain the political influences of this tradition. In charting the lasting legacy of the HRS there are lessons to be learned, although ‘dark’ aspects of this tradition would recommend that HRM scholars would gain more from moving forward rather than looking back.
