In our research and teaching, we focus on the basic mechanisms of human resource management: companies need to move sufficient numbers of suitable people into suitable positions at the right time. Fair performance management and a transparent compensation policy ensure that this potential is turned into results that make everyone better off: Employees, companies, and society. We use appropriate research designs and data as well as statistical methods to produce robust research results, which we translate into theoretically sound and practice-relevant teaching. We present our research at academic conferences and in exchange with practitioners. Our research is regularly published in the world’s leading journals.
