Human Resources and Management

People are at the centre of any organization. Faculty members in the Human Resources & Management Area at DeGroote are studying how to plan for, select, train, organize, lead, motivate and inspire and manage people, from contract workers to long-time employees, from North America and Europe to Asia and Africa. Generally, the main purpose of these activities is to enhance organizational effectiveness and to help organizations achieve their strategic objectives.

Research conducted by faculty encompasses the broad disciplines of organizational behaviour, human resource management, and industrial relations. Most faculty in the area hold external research grants (totalling almost $2 million) and all have ongoing programs of research.

Recent publications by area members have appeared in such journals as Academy of Management Journal, Advances in Industrial and Labor Relations, Human Relations, Industrial Relations, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Personnel Psychology, and Strategic Management Journal.
