• Essays on the future of employee mobility

      Rogiers, Philip (2020)
      In this dissertation, we empirically examine a new model of employee mobility in large, hierarchical organizations. Our focus is on three guiding questions: (1) What processes are replacing conventional mobilization and development approaches? And what technologies are expected to play a key role therein?; (2) What technology design are organizations applying to revise their approaches to employee mobility and development?; (3) How do employees experience individual work and development in these new marketplaces of work? We find that traditional mobility models are being replaced by more nimble and market-like forms of mobility that provide employees unprecedented opportunities to self-direct their careers within their broader organization. We emphasize both the theoretical and practical implications of our findings and identify several areas of future inquiry.
