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 behaviour (OB) and human resource management (HRM)– the study of individuals, groups and organizational practices at work. In studying these influences, ERIM’s research group OB/HRM highlights the role of leadership, team work, HR practices and employee well-being in the performance of individuals and teams. The research group is looking for a PhD candidate in OB/HRM 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, diversity, HR management, performance management, teamwork, social networks, creativity, and empowerment.
