Dr. Nita N. Chhinzer is an Associate Professor of Human Resources at the University of Guelph's Department of Management. Her study focuses on Strategic Human Resource Management, including downsizing techniques, procedures, and ethics. Nita Chhinzer earned her MBA in 2000 and went on to work in management positions at firms such as HP and Nortel.
She saw then that downsizing's execution, decisions, and implementation had important personal, organisational, and social consequences, pushing her to return to academia to further our understanding of downsizing. In 2006, she received her Ph.D. in Management from McMaster University, with a concentration on human resources.
As a result, her research focuses mostly on downsizing actions, antecedents, outcomes, and decision-making.
She won the Emerald Literati Award (Education + Training) in 2019 for her research into how companies define graduate student employability, and she was named one of Canada's top 25 HR professionals in 2016. She is also a co-author of the best-selling textbooks Human Resource Management in Canada (now in its 14th edition) and Human Resource Management (now in 5th edition).
