Project
The main purpose of this research study is to investigate the soft skills in HR management consulting. This qualitative research tries to identify the key soft skills required in knowledge-based careers such as HR management consulting. The study will also look at the training and education opportunities the HR consultants may experience, and if these resources improved their job performance. Semi-structured interviews will be developed. The HR management consultants will be recruited from 1) start-up consulting firms and, 2) large consulting companies. This can give the researcher the opportunity to compare these two groups. This qualitative study will help to explore BEST practical steps and methods for soft skills development in HR management consulting.
Project
The goal of this research is to examine the workplace ethical dilemmas and pressures experienced by young people during their first few years post graduation. Our working hypothesis, supported by anecdotal evidence, is that 20-somethings face different workplace ethical challenges than do the 50-something managers who are more commonly at the heart of major scandals, and who are more typically the central figures in cases taught in business school classrooms. The survey will be primarily quantitative, with some open-ended questions to allow for qualitative analysis. There will be special emphasis on identifying career stage-specific challenges, in particular challenges faced disproportionately frequently by “early career” employees – roughly those in their first 5 years of full-time employment while comparing their particular challenges with employees in other career stages. We expect that the information gleaned from this survey will inform both business school curricula and corporate training practices.
Project
This project develops and tests an approach to blended learning (incorporating digital materials into the classroom) using case studies, a traditional teaching tool in business education. Case studies focused on entry-level employee ethical issues will be converted into choice-based digital "serious games " . Playing these games on electronic devices will help students develop critical thinking and decision-making skills for ethical leadership, as well as better prepare them for (re)entry into the workforce.The two main objectives of the project are to develop the games and measure their effectiveness. The project is supported by the Ted Rogers Leadership Centre' s Game Based Learning Lab. https://www.ryerson.ca/tedrogersschool/trlc/research-and-resources/GameLab/
