Arjun is a PhD student in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources in the Department of Managerial Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He graduated from Xavier Institute of Management, India with an MBA in HR. Prior to his MBA, Arjun worked as a Consultant at PwC, India for 22 months. During that time, he gained first-hand experience of the challenges faced by a transnational organization in sustaining and developing a competitive cross-cultural diverse workforce while striving towards bringing a person-organization fit. This stimulated his interest in the area of organizational behavior and led him to conduct studies on cross-cultural employee motivation and psychological capital during his MBA. Coming from a culturally diverse background, his research interests, since then, have broadened to encompass diversity management, especially managing invisible identities in the workplace, female representation in corporate boards/top management teams, executive compensation, and strategic HRM.
