ABOUT THE EVENT:

     This event gives HRD students the opportunity to hear a great speaker in the HR field and to network with local HR professionals. The benefits from this event will go

    towards the Cyril Solomons Scholarship Fund, which was created to honor the memory

    of Cyril Solomons, Ph.D, the husband of Dr. Helen Solomons. Both Cyril and Helen have been associated with Villanova University and the HRD Graduate Program for more than twenty years and have contributed to the program not only as teachers and mentors to our students, but also as friends and advocates. The aim of the scholarship is to help students who have demonstrated outstanding abilities but do not qualify for a full scholarship or graduate assistantship. This is a great opportunity not only to advance your career but also to contribute to a great cause and to further the HRD program’s continued growth.

    Each HR professional will receive a resume book filled with the resumes of HRD students. If you have not yet sent in your resume, please send them ASAP to Imad at imad.el.khoury@villanova.edu. Late resumes are not guaranteed to be in the book.

More details soon. Watch for a special edition SHRM newsletter to come out before the Networking Reception on the 22nd. Invitations to follow!

1. HR Trends and Competencies Project

The graduate HRD program is conducting research on HR Trends and Competencies,

    and they need your insights! The survey will ask you to provide your perspective on the competencies necessary to face future HR trends. The trends include increased cost in healthcare, decrease in pensions, increases in e-learning, use of technology to communicate information to employees, a global economy, outsourcing blue and white collar jobs, and much more. To request a copy of the survey, contact Serena Dehner at
