What have I been up to?

January 29th, 2014 · No Comments · Uncategorized

It has been a while friends!  Please forgive my absence.  It has been a busy semester but I am about to start a new MHRM course so I thought it was time to restart this Blog.  I really enjoy having this here to engage students between classes.  Due to the structure of the MHRM course, 1 day of class each month, it is easy to become disconnected in the weeks when we are all working independently.  I hope that this Blog provides a space for engagement outside of the classroom environment.  And I hope that others might join us here as well!  It is wonderful to have many people commenting on the posts.  

So, what has been happening in the last few months?  Well, I took over as Director of the School of Human Resource Management here at York University on July 1, 2013.  While I followed my incredibly gifted and very well organized colleague, Dr. Parbudyal Singh, into this role I still found that I was running on a treadmill during first few months.  Despite the fact that I had been in an academic leadership role in the past, there was a lot to learn.  At this point, I feel as though I have my feet back under me and I am even ready to push forward a few new initiatives – more on these as they progress.



In the short term, I wanted to share with you a publication produced by the School this year under the leadership of Dr. Len Karakowsky.  The HR Edge has just arrived in hard copy in our offices.  You can read it online in PDF format.  Len did a wonderful job of collecting and publishing the work of our colleagues, students, and business partners. I hope you will enjoy reading about the research activities of the school as well as the interesting career paths of our students.  

For updates on what is happening in our school and in my own research, stay tuned to this Blog or follow me on Twitter @budworth.
