Matthew Corritore is an assistant professor of Strategy & Organization in the Desautels Faculty of Management. He joined the faculty in 2018 after completing his PhD in Macro-Organizational Behavior at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Matthew investigates questions related to corporate culture and non-standard work. His research agenda consists of two streams:
1) Cultural Heterogeneity and Firm Performance: While cultural diversity can undermine employee coordination and motivation, diverse ideas also promote creativity and innovation. Are organizations, then, forced to choose between a homogenous, productive culture or a diverse, innovative culture?
2) Nonstandard Work and Job Quality: Labor markets have been undergoing a profound transformation in recent decades, defined by a shift away from permanent employment models and towards nonstandard work arrangements, such as contract work. The implications of the increased prevalence of contract work for worker welfare and satisfaction are not well understood. When are contract gigs good versus bad jobs?
Matthew studies these issues using computational techniques that leverage the power of big data and natural language processing (i.e. text analysis) to measure complex social phenomena.
