Hello! My name is Anthony Hunt and I’m a PhD student in the Human Resource Development (HRD) program at Texas A&M University. I’m conducting research for my dissertation about factors that relate to HR expertise, such as experience, personality, membership in professional associations, and decision-making styles.
I invite all HR professionals who are at least 18 years of age to participate in my study by completing a survey, which can be found at: https://tamucehd.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8qTfU038TLjfxrL
Participation is voluntary, confidential, and only takes about 15-20 minutes. I’m even giving away four (4) $50 Amazon gift cards in a drawing for those who the complete the survey by November 30, 2019.
Thank you in advance for your contribution!
