Recognition for 70 Years of Professional Education in HRM

Members of the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation recently accepted an award, on behalf of the Business School, for an outstanding contribution to Scottish HR at the Hr NETWORK Awards Gala Dinner. The dinner attracts around 800 HR and people professionals and the awards recognise, acknowledge and reward the champions of the Scottish HR profession. The award recognises a longstanding and sustained contribution to the Scottish HR profession. In the preamble to the award it was recognised that the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation, and its forerunners, have been offering professionally-accredited programmes in HR since 1948/49. The award also recognised Strathclyde’s ethos of being a place of useful learning, which has sustained a positive level of engagement with the HR community in Scotland and beyond, through teaching, research and knowledge exchange activities.

Can your organisation support a HR student placement? If you offer an HR placement opportunity or project, our post-graduate students can help your organisation find a solution to an HR issue you are experiencing or help you prepare for a change on the horizon. Students carry out free research and provide you with a report including future recommendations. This can lead to process improvements resulting in time or money saved or a plan on how to implement a future initiative. Please contact karen.morrison@strath.ac.uk for full information.
