The project intends to uncover the aspects of organisational behaviour and explore its implication on employee creativity.
This PhD project will investigate the dark side of organisational behaviours that may have significant negative impact on employees and suffocate their creativity. The aim of the study helps to identify critical mitigating factors towards such dark side, and to develop individual and organisational capability so that employee creativity can be effectively unleashed. The achievement of this can foster employees’ proactive and change-oriented behaviours, encourage intrapreneurship, and promote organisational innovation.
This is an interdisciplinary project by drawing on knowledge across organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship and innovation, and human resource management. The project takes a person-centric approach to understand how negative workplace factors can inhibit employees’ creativity, and how to combat these factors with effective intervention strategies. This project contributes to the development of individual and organisational capability in promoting and leading change, fostering intrapreneurship, and broadening innovation through the mitigation of the mitigating the dark side.
The candidate will work with a team of highly experienced and productive researchers from the above mentioned disciplines. The project will be suitable for candidates who have solid knowledge and background in organisational behaviour, psychology, human resource management, or entrepreneurship and innovation, and who have strong capability in quantitative research methods.
