Omale Garba

My research lies in the intersections of organizational behavior and human resources, including but not limited to ethical leadership, employee engagement, work-family relationships, bottom-line mentality, wellbeing and job crafting. Specifically, I empirically investigate the bedrock of effective leadership and work-family practices in organizations and how leaders can better make strategic decisions that creates a highly performing and ethical workplace.
