Faculty Research Video: Allison Gabriel, Employee Well-Being at Work


McClelland Professor of Management and Organizations and University Distinguished Scholar, Allison Gabriel’s research primarily focuses on employee well-being at work.

Her most recent research focus has been on women’s health in the workplace and how companies can support women as they make their way back to work post-partum—specifically when it comes to breast feeding.

Gabriel joined the Eller College of Management in 2015 after serving as an Assistant Professor of Management in the School of Business at Virginia Commonwealth University for two years. She earned her PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology in 2013 from the University of Akron, and her BA in Psychology in 2008 from Penn State University. Her research focuses on emotions at work, employee recovery, interpersonal work stressors, relationships at work, motivation, and employee well-being, and has resulted in several awards from the Academy of Management (AOM) and Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). For her teaching, she was selected by Poets and Quants as a Top Undergraduate Business School Professor in 2018. She currently serves as an Associate Editor at Journal of Applied Psychology.
