Professional Interests

My primary professional practice and scholarly research interest is strategic human resource management (HR), or how people management practices facilitate the accomplishment of strategic organizational objectives. I firmly believe that human resources are inherently worthy of investment, as God's image bearers and the ultimate source of all wealth creation in business contexts.

 

To that end, I regularly engage in strategic HR consulting activities with business firms. Some representative current/past clients include Chattem/Sanofi, Southern Champion Tray, BJB, Card-Monroe Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Kemper, Signal Energy, and M&M Industries. I also actively conduct scholarly and professional writing activities. A listing of representative publications is included below.

 

Personal Interests

I'm a hockey nut, having grown up in Detroit, Michigan (aka "Hockeytown") and having played competitive ice hockey through my college years. Today I play competitive inline/roller hockey and serve as the advisor for the burgeoning Covenant College Hockey Club. I also enjoy golf. Mostly, I love my bride Jamie, and our four children (the "Quattro, Quatro" kids).

Jay Finlayson

“Principles of Finance. This class was taught by my favorite professor, Dr. Dodson, and in this class we began to learn about different things that are practical to running a business and that we alluded to freshman year. It was exciting to see how far we’ve come through just a few year’s classes, and also to think about how much more we still have to learn. Also, Dr. Dodson is the man.”
