Partnering with The University of Alabama Human Resources Institute is an opportunity for you to build a more engaged, productive workforce through evidence-based solutions while helping to train the next generation of HR leaders.

It all starts with the project.

At HRI, we are structured around projects. We take the time to work with you to establish your goals and how we can work together to achieve those goals. We establish the parameters of the project, always leaving flexibility to explore new avenues as they come up. At every step, we’ll be drawing from best practices and the latest research.

Then, we build a team.

A faculty member leads every project then we build out from there. We draw from our talented pool of postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D. students, all of which have experience consulting and working with organizations like yours. Then, we add our brilliant master’s and undergraduate students. We find the perfect match between our expertise and your project. We are committed to building a working partnership with your organization.

We ask questions. We dig. And then we dig deeper.

To find solutions, one has to understand the problem. We observe how things work at your organization, interview your people, conduct surveys, work with your data, and review the literature. By applying cutting-edge research methodology to your problem, we find the root of your concerns and start to work toward solutions.

It ends with sustainable, evidence-based solutions.

Ultimately, our goal is to identify solutions supported by evidence that you can sustain over the long term. Whether it’s a quick fix or a large-scale change in your organization’s culture, we will work with you to devise a plan that you can carry out, knowing that we’ll be there to support you as you need it.
