Steven Blader received his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania (1994) and his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from New York University (2002). His research identifies the organizational conditions that motivate employee performance by addressing employees' social and relational concerns in the workplace. His work focuses on understanding how employees assess their social and relational standing in their work organizations, and the influence of those judgments on their behavior at work. He is currently investigating these issues by examining employee perceptions of the fairness they experience at work, their judgments about status in their organizational lives, and the extent to which their work organizations constitute an important part of how they think and feel about themselves.
Professor Blader has published his research in many of the leading organizational and psychology journals, including Organization Science, Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and Personality & Social Psychology Bulletin. In addition, Professor Blader has published two books, Identity and the Modern Organization (with C. Bartel & A. Wrzesniewski) and Cooperation in Groups (with Tom Tyler).
