A Message from the Director

Welcome to the School of Human Resources Management at York University.

I am delighted with the opportunity to be the Director of the School of HRM (SHRM) and solidify its reputation as the institution of choice for students pursuing human resource management in Canada and globally. In this regard, I will build on the work of other directors, administrators and staff who have made the SHRM a wonderful place to work and learn.

I have been at York since 2004 and this is my second stint as the Director of SHRM. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best people anywhere. My colleagues are among leaders in recruitment and selection, career management, talent management, labour and employment law, industrial relations, compensation, training and development, occupational health and safety, work-life balance, and strategic planning and management, to name a few areas. Our award-winning faculty members conduct leading-edge research and excel in their teaching.

We are very proud of our students. Many of them have excelled as human resource professionals in organizations achieving positions such as Presidents, Chief Human Resource Officers, Vice-Presidents, and Human Resource Directors, to name a few. Many students have also gone on to careers in academia, becoming professors in leading universities.

We have very hard-working and helpful staff. They provide excellent support for all our programs. Please feel free to stop by and let us know how we/they can help.

I look forward to working with all of you to make the School of HRM the institution of choice for students pursuing human resource management.

My very best wishes to all.
