Fulbright Breakfast Seminar with Fulbright-Hanken Distinguished Chair Craig Crossley

Fulbright Seminar with Craig Crossley
Welcome to a breakfast seminar with Fulbright-Hanken Distinguished Chair Craig Crossley: "Leading with Integrity: The Profitable Path to Promotion". The breakfast is served at 8 am and the seminar is from 8.30-9.30 am. Please register for the event through the link above.

In this session, Dr. Crossley will discuss several of his studies related to ethical leadership effects on firm financial performance and on leaders' careers. He will also share insights into forming academic-industry research partnerships that allow greater scientific rigor, relevance, and practical impact. 

Dr. Crossley is an associate professor of management at the University of Central Florida. He is internationally renowned for his research on leadership, trust and ethics, and moreover for his ability to form research-practice collaborations with a wide range of business partners from small family businesses to large multinational firms.

In the past few years there has been a fair amount of debate and contradictory findings on how Human Resource policies and leadership styles jointly affect firm performance. Along these lines, Dr. Crossley is continuing work on a methodologically advanced project with Hanken professor and researcher Mats Ehrnrooth to more clearly isolate effects and offer a more complete understanding of how to optimise leadership and HR practices to enhance both firm performance and employee well-being.

"This is an important time for research like this with global trends in Human Resource practices and increased international competition for talent. Building on work we did last year, I am excited to engage with the great group of Finnish scholars at Hanken School and advance this research. We're in a great position to connect with professionals in new and exciting ways to gather data and insights crucial for advancing our understanding, ultimately enabling greater practical and academic success," says Dr. Crossley.

Levereaging the best HR practices and leadership principles can enhance both firm performance and employee well-being, which can help multinational firms in the Nordic region attract and retain the best talent.  

“This research has important implications for how firms compete in an increasingly global economy with impending talent shortages and a major shift in the nature of work, especially in the knowledge and service sectors,” Dr. Crossley states.

The seminar is open to Hanken alumni, students, staff and corporate partners.
