Human Resource Management is often proposed as a way to integrate the so-called minority groups in an organization. This paper takes up this proposition by examining HRM practices and the way they can provide solutions for the group of lower educated people. HRM is first analyzed for its underlying assumptions related to idea of the 'other.' It then discusses an alternative implementation of HRM which departures from the assumption of heterogeneity in the organization and which reconsiders the norms based upon the needs of the lower educated people as well as other so-called minority groups.
