Related Research Interests
My research interests are focused on why and when individuals engage in prosocial behavior at the workplace. I am mainly interested in those behaviors that are explicitly beyond one’s organizational role, such as corporate volunteering. I seek to understand why individuals choose to engage in these behaviors. I focus on how relationships with others can alter one’s behavior and motivation to do good or bad at the workplace. I apply a positive lens to my research, looking at how good relationships at work influence employee’s meaningfulness, performance, and prosocial behavior.
I am intrigued by how behavior change over time, and how relationships employee’s has lead to changes in behavior, perception, and motivation. Additionally, I research how relationships with others can change one’s perceptions of them.
