Biography

Gail Hebson joined Manchester Business School as a lecturer in Human Resource Management in 2005. Prior to that she worked as a research associate in the European Work and Employment Research Centre at the Manchester Business School on a range of projects, including research funded by the ESRC Future of Work Programme and the European Gender Group on Social Inclusion and Employment. She completed her PhD at University of Bristol in 2001.

Gail’s main research interests lie in the study of gender relations and equality in the workplace. She has a wider interest in research that focuses on the changing experience of work for those in low skilled occupations and exploring this through in-depth qualitative work. Gail currently teaches Human Resource Management at undergraduate level and also teaches on the MSc in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations.

Research Interests

Gail’s main research interests relate to gender relations and equality in the workplace. She is particularly interested in how different forms of inequality intersect to create advantage and disadvantage in the workplace. This has led to a focus on the employment of low paid women using in-depth qualitative methods to explore their changing experience of work. She has also carried out research on emotional labour in the service sector and is particularly interested in how this is experienced differently across the service sector. Gail is an active member of the Fairness at Work Research Centre and is currently researching the working conditions of low paid workers in the care sector.
