Success in today’s global economy calls for a broader understanding of the world of work. Fundamental changes in technology, work operations and the workforce coupled with shifting social conditions require employers to take a fresh approach to organizing the relationships among employees.
There is need for broadly-trained professionals who can deal with these changes effectively, coordinate people creatively, and foster innovation in others. These new professionals must be able to critically analyze work arrangements, develop problem-solving solutions and implement planned actions.
Whether you want to work in a major corporation, in a government agency, in a union or a public service organization, you need a variety of skills to meet the challenges of a changing workplace.
Employment Relations, an option in the SIUE Sociology Program, brings you these skills.
