The Department of Human Resource Management (HRM) knows that a company’s people are its most important asset and strategic advantage—and fostering synergies between the human side and the business side of every enterprise is essential.
More and more organizations are hiring well-trained professionals to recruit, develop, manage, and retain their most valuable asset: people. The HRM department prepares students with the knowledge and skills needed for the strategic and interpersonal management of company employees.
We develop ethical leaders and managers who understand that commitment to employee well-being and talent development enhances an organization’s productivity, reputation, and sustainable profits. The program offers theoretical perspectives and practical skills in traditional areas of HR—such as recruitment and succession planning, training and talent development, compensation and benefits, employee relations, and public policy/compliance—emphasizing both local and global considerations. Students take courses designed to enhance their interpersonal leadership skills, including communication, negotiation, conflict management, and team building.

Dr. Andersson received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Social Issues in Management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research, published in outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Human Relations, and Organization, focuses on the dark side of business organizations. In particular, she’s been examining some social maladies that are arguably associated with late capitalism and neoliberalism (cynicism, incivility, corruption, detrimental philanthrocapitalism) as well as the role of social activism in countering capitalist barriers to sustainability.
Dr. Andersson teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the area of Business, Society and Ethics and Corporate Sustainability, and has been lauded for her curricular innovation and ability to inspire critical thinking in her students. She was the recipient of the 2006 Andrisani-Frank Undergraduate Teaching Award and the 2005 Musser Excellence in Leadership Award for Teaching.
Active on campus, in her profession, and in the community, Dr. Andersson’s service engagements revolve around trying to stir things up, attempting to “ecologize” and “humanize” the business world and business education. She is currently on the Board of Directors at the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia.

Ravi S. Kudesia (PhD in Management, Washington University in St. Louis) is an Assistant
Professor of Human Resource Management at the Fox School of Business, Temple University.
Before joining the Fox School, he was a research fellow at Future Resilient Systems: a think tank
established collaboratively by ETH Zürich and the National Research Foundation of Singapore.
Dr. Kudesia researches how people can organize more mindfully. In doing so, he explores three
interdependent processes: attention (what information people notice in situations), interpretation
(how people give meaning to that information), and energy (how engaged people are in
responding to situations). Going beyond the individual level, his research further concerns how
attention, interpretation, and energy transfer across individuals as they organize into
collectives—and how these collectives solve problems and make sense of their environments.
Taking a multimethod and interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Kudesia has conducted research using
experiments, qualitative methods, and agent based models—and has collaborated with
neuroscientists, theoretical physicists, and a Buddhist monk. In addition to the more conventional
organizational contexts, his research also captures organizing processes in contexts as diverse as
protest crowds, explosive demolition projects, and NCAA Division 1 sports teams. His research
has appeared in leading outlets such as Academy of Management Review and Journal of Business
Dr. Kudesia welcomes collaborations with doctoral students on projects related to mindfulness,
sensemaking, and problem solving in complex systems—including students who wish to pursue
qualitative research methods. For examples of his projects, please visit the research link above.

Dr. Yifan Song is an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management at the Fox School of Business, Temple University. She obtained a Ph.D. in Management from University of Florida in 2019.
Dr. Song’s main areas of research include work-related stress and leadership in teams. Specifically, her work on work-related stress has focused on understanding how employees and teams react to work-related stressors and identifying effective interventions to reduce the undesired consequences of these stressors. In particular, apart from stressors that commonly exist in most employees’ daily work routines (e.g., mistreatment from customers, coworkers, and supervisors), she is also interested in studying work stressors that are uniquely relevant to specific employee populations (e.g., organizational newcomers, migrant workers, and older workers). In addition, her work on leadership in teams has mainly focused on examining how CEO leader behaviors and top management team leadership structures impact business unit performance.
Dr. Song’s work has appeared in leading outlets, such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, and Academy of Management Discoveries.

His recent work in the area of engagement has focused on the day-to-day dynamics of this motivational state. His research has appeared in leading outlets, such as Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management, and Journal of Organizational Behavior. Ryan serves on the Editorial Review Board of the Academy of Management Journal.
