Professor Howard Klein, Professor of Management and Human Resources, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, will deliver a talk titled “Contemporary Workplace Commitments” on Friday, October 16 from 2-4 p.m. in Keller Building, Room 502.
Professor Klein will summarize his recent work aimed at facilitating the study of the multiple commitments employees simultaneously hold in the contemporary workplace, outline future research needed to better understand what commitments are most desirable in what contexts, and share the results of a recent study examining how employees explain the workplace commitments they have, as well as commitments they previously held.
His research interests center on the commitment, motivation, and performance of individuals and teams through the study of workplace commitments, socialization, goal setting, training, and performance management. Professor Klein has authored more than 50 articles and book chapters and made over 65 presentations at scholarly conferences on these and other topics.
The talk is open to the public.
