The Science-Practice Gap among Recreation Managers with HR Responsibilities
Nowicki, Margaret D.; Arnold, Margaret
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v4 n10 p77-82 Oct 2007
Researchers across management fields continue to recognize the importance of conducting research that matters to practitioners (e.g., Nowicki & Rosse, 2001; Ford, Duncan, Bedeian, Ginter, Rousculp, & Adams, 2003) yet continue to point out the schism that exists between needs of practitioners and research interests of academics. This paper presents the results of a research study conducted to explore the use and knowledge of sound HR hiring practices among leisure service professionals in NY State. Findings indicate that leisure service managers lack a sufficient amount of HR-specific knowledge to do their jobs soundly from a legal perspective. (Contains 1 table.)
