I completed my PhD in Management at the University of Canterbury. My PhD thesis examined employee turnover decision making in a post-crisis context. My core research interests center on employee turnover and retention, both from the perspective of identifying the factors that drive turnover and on understanding the decision processes involved in leaving and staying. Other areas of research interest include ethics in human resource management; employee recruitment and selection; and careers related research. At present I am particularly interested in understanding the processes involved in career transitions from self-employment to organisational employment. I am also coordinating an international study examining the role of the human resource function in promoting ethical behaviour in organisations in South Africa, New Zealand and China.
