“Working in the shadow of shame: Employees’ responses to a corporate scandal”.
Start your day with breakfast while you learn more about trust, identity, and ethics in the financial sector.
About once a month you are welcome to a casual morning gathering with your colleagues. While enjoying a light breakfast you get to listen to a short (5-10 minutes), interesting talk. Now it's time for our fourth occasion.
Content of today's talk and the research behind
Speaker of the day is Senior lecturer and Associate professor of Organizational Studies, Sanne Frandsen.
For the past three years, Sanne Frandsen has been leading a research project about trust, identity, and ethics in the financial sector. The project was launched after a series of corporate scandals in the sector. While most research on corporate scandals focuses on the external management of media and other public stakeholders, Sanne Frandsen’s research focuses on the internal organizational dynamics and the struggles of frontline employees (financial advisors) related to stigmatization, identity, ethics, and trust building during the peak of a scandal. While the frontline employees have not been directly involved in the wrongdoing leading to the corporate scandal, they are often considered crucial to the organization’s recovery after the scandal. The research is based on interviews and observations during a longitudinal case study (4 years) of a bank before, during, and after its corporate scandal.
A light breakfast, sandwich, coffee and tea, will be served.
Dean Mats Benner will introduce the event. Spoken language: English
See you in Ljusgården!
