Managers need to have a keen understanding of the political underpinnings of employee behaviour in order to understand why actors behave in particular ways in different IR scenarios. Another important IR consideration is to understand how employees are represented within organisations, and the changing character of the trade union. Thus, individual and collective employee behaviours are also representative of deeper organisational processes. Managers need to develop typologies in order to comprehend how behaviours are representative of deeper processes. Finally, IR needs to be understood in a comparative sense, particularly in the light of forces of globalization and competitiveness.
