TiCC Colloquium: Jos Bartels

What: Organizational communication and stakeholder behaviours
Where: AZ 414
When: Wednesday, 19 October 2016, 12:30 - 13:30 hours


My research focuses on internal and external communication, social identification processes and the sustainability behaviours of multiple stakeholders in organizations. More specifically, I investigate the role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) communication via social media in the behaviours of employees and consumers. In addition, I study determinants and consequences of employees' online boundary management behaviours in organizational contexts. The presentation will focus on my recent projects on both online boundary management of employees and consumer responses to CSR initiatives of companies and brands.
