Traditionally, management research takes the perspective of business and focuses on how conditions for business can be improved. Research conducted within the Value Based Organizing subprogram starts with the challenges that society and our natural environment face and focuses on how business, in partnership with other actors, can address these challenges. In other words, we help business to take responsibility for the context in which it operates. Research in our group focuses on alternative definitions of and approaches to business, including issues around climate change, reputation, business ethics, philanthropy, social enterprise and partnerships. The research methods we use vary from qualitative techniques to survey and laboratory research.

“Acting on unprecedented change” describes a series of interrelated projects that address the most current challenges that businesses face. Specifically, our social and natural environments are changing in unprecedented ways. Business contributes to some of these developments, such as climate change, growing inequality, and also alienation from the general public by losing track of the interests of broader society. Yet, society also changes in ways that are difficult to foresee for companies. Each project describes ways for companies to deal with these challenges and to contribute in such a way that changes work out for the best (or at least, are less damaging). A common theme underlying each project is that each seriously considers the possibility that the way companies do business -including how they relate to the context in which they operate- needs to be changed fundamentally and that small gestures are unlikely to be sufficient to help solve the large problems that society faces.

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.
