Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management

People are the greatest asset of organizations delivering complex products or services. For such knowledge-intensive work, it is of crucial importance that individuals proactively contribute their knowledge, expertise, and creativity in collaborative team efforts to realize high-quality performance. With growing diversity and reliance on cross-national collaborations, this also increasingly includes the ability to bridge gaps in understanding and experience to achieve effective collaboration and synergy. All of this renders an understanding of the factors influencing the motivation, collaboration, and performance of people at work of growing importance to business success. The influence of such factors is the domain of study of organizational behavior and human resource management – the study of individuals and groups at work, and of their management. In studying these influences, ERIM’s research group in organizational behavior and human resource management highlights the role of leadership, team work, and employee well-being in the performance of individuals and teams. The research group is looking for a PhD candidate in organizational behavior to be part of this program of research. The specific focus of the project will be determined in a collaboration between the PhD candidate and the supervising faculty, but the expectation is that the focus would be aligned with the core expertise of the supervisory team in leadership, HR, power, empowerment, and cross-cultural collaborations.
