Research activities


Steve Granger is an Assistant Professor in the Management Department at the John Molson School of Business, Concordia University. He received his PhD in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources from the University of Calgary, as well as his MSc and BA (hons) from the University of Manitoba.

The common thread that runs through his research program is the experience of adversity at or while working. This thread connects his primary streams of research within the areas of occupational health psychology and the future of work, where he studies individual (e.g., resilience and proactivity), interpersonal (e.g., social support and leadership), and organizational processes (e.g., job design and human resource management practices) that help or hinder individuals’ ability to confront adversity.

His work has been published in various outlets, including Journal of Vocational Behavior, Human Relations, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Review, Organizational Dynamics, and Journal of Safety Research. He has also taught courses in organizational behaviour and research methods, and serves as an editorial board member at Human Relations and Journal of Vocational Behavior
