Thesis: Antecedents and Consequences of Workforce Differentiation
Ugandan-born Sam has lived, studied, and worked in Kenya, and is now a full-time PhD student at the department of Marketing and Management. After graduating with a first-class MBA, he worked as a human resources officer and later as an assistant lecturer.
Sam’s research seeks to examine contextual factors that shape job characteristics, and second, investigate how the different ways in which jobs have been allocated, shape employee attitudes towards work. Results from this study are expected to shade further light on how to develop effective human resource systems and strategies which are beneficial for organisations and employees.
