Dr. Smith conducts research on various factors that predict and explain job performance and employee behaviors. Specifically, his research focuses on both individual-level and group-level predictors of performance. For instance, he examines individual differences (e.g., personality) and team-level climates (e.g., climate for involvement). His research has been published in various refereed journals that include Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Personality and Individual Differences, and International Journal of Human Resource Management. He has presented his research at several national and international professional conferences, and he has acted as a consultant for organizations in various industries (e.g., healthcare, government, chemical).
