Professor Ephrat Livne-Ofer joined New York University Stern School of Business as an adjunct professor of Management and Organizations in January 2017. She teaches Management and Organizations.

Professor Livne-Ofer’s research focuses on employee-organization relationships and on factors that contribute to or inhibit their success. As a part of her work, she developed a scale to measure employees’ perceptions of exploitation by their organization, and has investigated the antecedents and consequences of such perceptions. Her research demonstrates the detrimental effects of exploitative employee-organization relationships on organizations and on individual employees. Professor Livne-Ofer has also examined the explanatory power of certain personality constructs and their impact on helping behaviors, and her work has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, the Journal of Personality Assessment, and Human Resource Management Review. She is also a senior reviewer on the review board of the Journal of Organizational Behavior.

Professor Livne-Ofer received her PhD in Management (the employment relations and organizational behavior group) from The London School of Economics and Political Science. She also holds an MSc in employment relations and organizational behavior from The London School of Economics and Political Science, as well as an MBA, a BA and a BSc from Tel-Aviv University.
