Assistant Professor, School of Labor & Employment Relations

Taekjin Shin

In Brief

Research Interests

Taekjin’s research focuses on social, psychological, and institutional processes that underlie career outcomes for top executive managers. It is based on the premise that the assessment of leadership effectiveness—as manifested in executive compensation and executive succession—fundamentally relies on social judgment regarding leadership competence. To study social processes that shape such a judgment, he draws on several theoretical perspectives in strategic management, organizational theory, and organizational behavior regarding social comparison, pay equity, power in organizations, symbolic management, and organizational legitimacy.
