More about the research group
- The aim of the OrgPsych research group is to publish empirical, theoretical and applied contributions of high international quality.
- Using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, we collaborate with both public and private sector organizations in order to promote healthy and productive workplaces.
Our goal is to promote and maintain both national and international research collaborations, by attending relevant conferences and inviting visiting scholars. Further, we want to host seminars with key national and international researchers.
With respect to publishing strategy, we aim to publish in top tier international journals within our field. To accomplish this, we actively seek to better ourselves in terms of gaining a large repertoire of qualitative (e.g. getting proficient in the use of analysis software such as NVivo) and quantitative skills (e.g. advanced multilevel modeling) using different methodologies such as experiments, diary studies, multi-source data, surveys and so forth.
We strongly believe that "no man (or woman) is an island" and that we will all benefit from helping each other. Therefore, our main strategies for developing each other include not only participating in relevant methods and statistics courses, but actively sharing this knowledge with each other. Furthermore, by formalizing our collaboration in terms of developing a shared research group, our hope is that we will be better able to recruit PhD students, and invite scholars with important and critical knowledge to increase the group members’ research and teaching competencies and skills. The group members aim to receive full professorship.
Our work contributes to research-based teaching and we seek to integrate state of the art international research findings in our courses. Our teaching encompasses themes such as organizational psychology, leadership, strategic human resource management on both master and bachelor level.
