The foundation's mission is to advance the knowledge and practice of human relationships in industry, commerce, education, government, and nongovernmental organizations. The foundation funds research on all aspects of HR management and the employment relationship, with a focus on addressing current issues and exploring emerging trends. The foundation seeks to fund academically-sound studies that generate practical results and that can be generalized across industries and organizations. In the spirit of Mr. Rockefeller's original vision, IRC (now operating as Innovation Resource Center for Human Resources - IRC4HR) seeks to make organizations more competitive, productive, and effective through improved people management practices, and to advance the mutually beneficial interests of organizations, workers, and society. We continue to accomplish this by sponsoring research and enabling communities of practitioners, academics, and public policy makers to identify issues and share knowledge all focused on promoting a more successful and engaging workplace.
Special Collections are curated collections of research that address a specific topic or research question.
Knowledge Centers are a custom service of IssueLab providing organizations with a simple way to manage and share knowledge on their own websites.
