WHO IS IN OUR NETWORK
We are fascinated by Dan Cable’s areas of research and the insights he generates. He focuses on cultural fit, talent management, the organisational entry process, incentive systems, and career success. We learn a lot from Dan’s work, and likewise we hope to inspire Dan with our research consortiums (Future of Work and Inclusion & Diversity).
Dan received his PhD from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1995 and was the Townsend Distinguished Professor of Management at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before joining London Business School as Professor of Organisational Behaviour where, since 2012, Dan has been Department Chair, Organisational Behaviour.
In this month’s Feature we are uncovering Dan’s work, and we recommend you read the article we refer to.
