Robert Stewart, Ph.D.

HR Administrator and Faculty, Brigham Young University Idaho

Robert Stewart is an HR professional, university professor, and corporate consultant. He is an expert in relationship and financial wellness and specializes in helping individuals and companies reduce organizational stress and increase organizational wellness.

With an MBA (emphasis in Human Resource Management) and years of corporate experience, Rob understands contemporary business needs and how intentionally investing in human capital can increase employee productivity, engagement, and retention (all while improving the bottom line).

However, it is Rob’s social science background (PhD in Family & Human Development and 13 years of university teaching) that allows him to provide a unique approach to employee performance and wellness. For years, he has taught a variety of relationship and money management courses at different universities and finds joy in helping individuals succeed. More recently, he has taken these lessons from the classroom to the boardroom.

Specifically, Rob enjoys helping organizations understand the substantial “invisible” costs (and opportunity costs) associated with the financial and relationship stress that employees bring with them to work each day.  Though this relationship and financial stress is often invisible to leadership (due to the stigma attached to discussing such challenges), Rob provides solutions that help organizations help their employees improve their overall wellness, engagement, and productivity.  Connect with Rob at
