Gary Bettman and Rob Manfred Cornell Club Talk [Video]

The ILR Workplace Colloquium Series is held at The Cornell Club in New York City. Periodically we bring together practitioners, Cornell alumni, policymakers, and academics for an evening of good food, presentations, and open discussions on workplace topics.

A few months ago we had the pleasure of hosting Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner, and Rob Manfred, VP HR for MLB. They jointly discussed labor relations in sports. The talk was called, “Human Resource Practices and Industrial Relations in Professional Sports.” The discussion and the following question and answer session was fantastic. Even those who weren’t especially sports fans or knowledgeable about labor relations in sports management found the conversation entertaining and educational.

If you’re sorry that you missed it. Don’t worry. It’s on our IWS Colloquium Website for all to see. Please find it here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
