Center for Human Resource Management
About the Center
The mission is to facilitate networking among human-resource professionals, faculty and students to establish and transfer current best practices that support the advancement of human resources as a business discipline in member organizations.
The center is an excellent example of effective collaboration between human-resource professionals in business and academia. It bridges the gap between organizational practitioners and university professors in an effort to enrich our scientific and applied understanding of important human-resource issues.
The center’s board members are top human resource professionals, who are responsible for the strategic direction of the human-resource function in their firms. Center members, which include corporate partners and faculty members, meet formally twice a year – once in the fall and once in the spring. The spring meeting is held on Florida State’s campus and includes a full day of activities including presentations from national experts, corporate partners and Florida State faculty members – all centered on ground-breaking human resource issues. The meetings also feature networking opportunities with other top human resource executives, faculty and students. The off-campus fall meeting is considered our main recruiting meeting and the location takes place in a relaxed and fun environment.
In addition to the informative meetings, corporate members can partner with faculty member to collect and analyze data and produce needed research for their organizations. The center also provides an email distribution listserve, from which members can obtain prompt, current information from fellow members on pressing human resource problems.
A goal of the Center for Human Resource Management is to connect with and support human resource management majors at Florida State.
This goal is achieved by:
- Sponsoring scholarships through the center for outstanding human-resource majors. Scholarship recipients are selected by center faculty members using criteria such as academic standing, career goals and demonstrated leadership in our student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
- Inviting HR students to join the center’s members for breakfast and lunch during their on-campus meeting.
- Matching top HR students interested in completing an internship with the firms of the center members.
- Inviting HR doctoral to students present their dissertation ideas, and obtain data-collection opportunities from center members.
- Inviting center members to guest lecture in HR classes.
