Brief Description of Work:
My work to date has looked broadly at trust, understanding how and why trust and distrust might shape employees affect, cognitions, decisions and actions. I am interested in the role of control (organizational and external regulation) and internal (self-regulation) at work and their relationship with organizational trust in enhancing and reducing individuals’ practice behaviours. I have written about Board effectiveness in this context, especially the role and impact of non-majority groups – women and BMEs, and non-executives. I have expertise in HR areas including specialty recruitment, performance management, and organisational change.
