Dr. Sandy J. Miles of Murray State University’s college of business has been selected to be part of the U.S. delegation to the ISO TC260 plenary meeting Nov. 10-11 in Arlington, Va.
The members at the plenary will seek to carve out international human resource management standards. Five of the 35 members of the U.S. tag team were selected as official delegates to meet with the delegates from the mirror tag teams of the eight and 24 observing countries.
Miles, a professor of management, said that the members selected for both the U.S. Tag Team and the delegates to the ISO TC260 Plenary meeting were chosen based on their submitted resumes as well as on participation in Tag Team meetings in June and September of this year.
Miles, a member of the Murray State faculty since 1991, received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and her MBA and doctorate from the University of Illinois-Carbondale.
She earned her initial certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources in 1994 and continues to remain current in her certification.
Her research in recruiting, selection and training between American and German firms resulted in two journal articles. She and colleague Dr. Glynn Mangold have had four articles published dealing with employee branding in which human resource management systems play a key role.
In summer, 2011, she and Dr. Gerry Muuka, also in the college of business, had an article, “Employee Choice of Voice: A New Workplace Dynamic,” that dealt with organizations in the age of social media.
Miles helped develop the human resources management program in the college of business that was audited in 2009 and endorsed by the Society for Human Resource Management for meeting curriculum guidelines.
She also has been active with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). She served on Kentucky’s state council for 10 years and on SHRM’s Area II board of directors. She is past president of the Four Rivers chapter of SHRM and a member of the editorial review board for Business Horizons, published by Indiana University.
