The Human Resources Research Institute (HRRI) is a faculty/executive partnership comprised of faculty from the Center for Human Resources and Labor Studies (CHRLS) who are recognized leaders in human resources and labor relations research, and high level executives working in the areas of human resources and/or labor relations. Membership in HRRI is available to all corporate members of the CHRLS Advisory Council, as well as members of the Human Resources Executive Council (HREC), and major recruiters of our students.
Annual membership in the Human Resources Research Institute is $7,500 and an investment in the advancement of the human resources and labor relations field. It provides an opportunity to network with other professionals and learn the latest research findings in a practice area.
HRRI is also meant to bridge the scientist-practitioner gap by allowing high level human resources professionals the opportunity to provide feedback on research as it is being designed, and by allowing academics access to potential organizational samples. Organizations partnering with the University on any research will receive practitioner summaries stemming from the data collection.
The spring partner meeting is the cornerstone of the HRRI membership. This meeting, held in May of each year, will showcase research conducted by our world-renowned faculty. The focal points of the meeting will be announced in advance.
