The OB/HRM area is comprised of an exceptional group of OB/HRM scholars whose interests span a variety of topics including aggression (e.g., abusive supervision, retaliation), creativity, emotions (e.g., emotional regulation, cultural effects on emotions), employee well-being, leadership/followership, met expectations, organizational justice, performance appraisals, personality testing, power/status, and psychological contracts, to name a few.

Our highly productive scholars were tied for the second most productive OB/HRM area in Canada (according to the 2015 Texas A & M rankings) and publish in the top journals in the field (e.g., Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Personnel Psychology). The research in our group is supported by prestigious research awards including grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Ontario Ministry of Innovation.

Our research-based MSc and PhD programs offer students the opportunity to conduct cutting edge research under the guidance and mentorship of leading scholars in the field. Our students have been the recipients of prestigious research awards and funding including the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), “Best Paper” conference awards, and the Best Masters Research in Canada award from the Human Resources Research Institute of the HRPAO.

Our faculty members are renowned for their outstanding teaching within the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics as well as their commitment to disseminating knowledge to practitioner outlets.
