The Workplace: A Case for Kindness


Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke will offer his take on why kindness is king in the workplace, even as the workplace continues to morph. Join us on March 11!

Join Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke for a humorous/serious look at the transformation of America’s workplaces.

Will we soon be working from home in our pajamas, drinking lattes, and playing ping pong, or will we work under the unblinking eyes of computers that monitor our every move?

About Rex Huppke

In the tradition of Mike Royko, Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke puts his wry spin on today’s social trends, pop-culture misfires, and political blowhards, providing the Tribune's readers with that rare combination of laughs and nod-along moments.

Huppke draws in readers of all ages with his weekly columns, which provide hysterical common-sense observations that just happen to illustrate the hypocrisy and absurdity of his subjects.

About the Institute of Human Resources and Employment Relations

The Institute has a long and storied history, contributing to Loyola’s Jesuit mission of responsible employment strategies and programs, inclusivity in the workplace, and social justice through teaching, research, and service.

During its 74 years, the Institute has promoted the development of human resources and employment relations (HRER) professionals by offering what is now called the Masters of Science in Human Resources (MSHR), and through executive education and conferences in the Chicago Metropolitan Area.

Our committed alumni are active as mentors for students, speakers for classes and special events, and advisors in curriculum development.
