For many across the country, returning to work after a year+ of the remote office lifestyle is at the forefront of our minds, but this transition back might present more challenges than we might be prepared to anticipate. Beyond pulling our work clothes out from the back of the closet, there are now many new challenges (and some old ones) employees are facing with the return to in-person work, from code-switching to pandemic-stress to other social barriers.
Join us in welcoming Dr. Matthew Crayne , Assistant Professor of Management at the University at Albany, Massry Center for Business, in opening up the discussion on the challenges the workforce faces returning to work, and how we can help address them. He holds a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Pennsylvania State University and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Crayne's research agenda primarily focuses on understanding the social and behavioral dynamics of leadership, at both micro and macro-organizational levels with specific focus on examining the causes and consequences of leader error and the impacts that leader errors have on individual and firm-level outcomes. His research also aims to expand the understanding of followers as a critical agent in the leadership process, and applications of organizational science to national security and public policy research.
His work has been published in journals such as American Psychologist, Organizational Research Methods, and Personality and Individual Differences.
