The School of Human Resource Management (SHRM) at York University is Canada's leader in HRM education.
SHRM houses the single largest group of scholars of any Canadian university dedicated to the study of work, and all that it entails. Our cutting-edge research, undertaken within the range of methodological, ontological, and epistemological perspectives, addresses real-world problems and significant intellectual debates.
Expertise of our faculty members ranges all areas of HRM specialization, including but not limited to: career management, compensation, critical management studies, labour and employment law, gender and diversity, global HRM, industrial relations, recruitment and selection, labour economics and statistics, strategic HRM, training and development, and work-nonwork issues.
Over the past five years, our faculty members held SSHRC grants totaling over one million Canadian dollars and have published dozens of books and leading research papers in many of the world's top peer-reviewed academic journals.
