Research and Publications

The School of Human Resource Management (SHRM) houses the single largest group of HRM scholars in any Canadian university, with robust research achievements and agendas. Our cutting-edge research, undertaken within the range of methodological, ontological, and epistemological perspectives, addresses real-world problems and significant intellectual debates.

Expertise of our faculty members ranges all areas of HRM specialization, including but not limited to: career management, compensation, critical management studies, employment and labour law, gender and diversity, industrial relations, global HRM, recruitment and selection, strategic HRM, training and development, and work-nonwork issues.

Research Funding

The high quality of the SHRM faculty is demonstrated in its frequent success in external, peer-reviewed research grant competitions. In the past five years, SHRM faculty members held SSHRC grants totaling over one million Canadian dollars. Here is a sample summary of some of the recent successful grants.
