Bibliography: Roger is the Associate
Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Park University. I’ve been
with Park for about 18 months, but have been an HR guy for almost 30 years. My
undergraduate degree in in Industrial Engineering and I tend to see HR from
more of a systems and problems solving focus than many HR professionals. I’ve
worked in a wide variety of industries and have a broad perspective on how HR
really works in organizations.
