Four Rockford College students presented papers at the 2009 International Conference on the Global Financial Crises held at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas June 4-6.  The papers were a product of the research they did during their Human Resources Management course last semester. Goal of the research was to examine the impact of the current global financial crisis on human resource management. Presenters and their topics included:

  • Amber Bianchi & Jenifer Ylvisaker, “The Impact of the Global Economic Crisis on the Provision of Equal Employment Opportunity and a Safe Workplace.”
  • Ryan J. Bell, “Has the Global Economic Crisis Influenced Trends in Human Resource Management?” 
  • Garrett Staniec, “The Impact of the Global Economic Crisis on Separating and Retaining Employees.”
