Bio

I am Christina Meyers, an assistant professor at the department of Human Resource Studies. I investigate organizational approaches to talent management, with the aim of uncovering how organizations can build on individual talent in an effective, yet sustainable way. That means that I am not only interested in exploring how talent management contributes to individual and organizational performance, but also in exploring how it fosters individual well-being, health, and growth across the career-span. I am particularly interested in inclusive approaches to talent management, which build on positive psychology and the underlying assumption that all individuals possess valuable and unique patterns of strengths or talents. Currently, I am working on projects regarding the collective use of strengths is teams, the role of employee proactivity in talent management, and the socialization of talented employees.
