Lamar Pierce
Washington University in St. Louis
Beverly and James Hance Professor of Strategy at the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis.
His research focuses on how the same economic and psychological mechanisms that impact employee productivity also influence ethics and misconduct. The dilemma for firms is how to design organizational policies that increase productivity without accelerating the unethical behavior that often accompanies it. His work also emphasizes the broader social welfare implications of misconduct, trauma, and public policy. He was formerly a Non-Resident Senior Scholar at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC. He publishes widely in the fields of Strategy, Operations, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Finance, Economics, Psychology, Ethics, and Political Science. He is currently the editor-in-chief of Organization Science Journal.
