Organizational Behavior & Human Resource Management

Mission Statement

The research interests of this interdisciplinary section cover the areas of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior. Specific fields of interest include leadership; teamwork; new team-based forms of organization; the roles of hierarchy, power, status and influence; emotions in organizations; personnel diagnostics (e.g., applicant selection, employee assessment); career management and career adjustments; assessing and promoting work performance in different contexts; personality and intelligence in careers; and the scientist-practitioner gap in Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior.
The section aims to advance the research areas of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior at JLU and strengthen JLU’s national and international visibility in these fields to make JLU even more attractive to young researchers. The section strives to involve both senior and early-career researchers in all academic disciplines concerned with the human being in an organizational context and/or organizational structures.
