Dr. Greig Taylor is a Lecturer in the School of Management. He received his PhD from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2014, which explored labour relations in the British dock industry from an historical perspective. In his academic career so far he has taught a variety of courses including Human Resource Management, International Human Resource Management, Leadership and Decision Making, Cross Cultural Management and Research Methods at both the postgraduate and undergraduate levels. Greig’s research interests focus on the dock and car manufacturing industries, but more broadly on the sociology of work, technological change, trade unionism, cross-cultural management, and the hegemony of neoliberalism in modern political economy. His research has been published in internationally-renowned journals such as Labor History, and Cross-Cultural and Strategic Management.
