Thank you to everyone who voted! And a big welcome to our newly elected members.
Martin Kilduff (University College London)
OMT Division Chair-Elect
Emilio J. Castilla (Incoming Program Chair-Elect)
Emilio J. Castilla is the NTU professor of Management and professor of Work and Organization Studies at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He is currently the co-director of the Institute for Work and Employment Research. He joined MIT in 2005, after being a faculty member in the Management Department of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his PhD in Sociology from Stanford University. His research focuses on questions relating to how social and organizational processes (for example, social networks, hiring and recruiting efforts, performance-reward systems, and managerial roles) influence key employment outcomes for individuals and organizations over time. He formulates and answers his research questions in a variety of research settings, making use of field studies and diverse research methodologies. Recently, given the widely popular goals of promoting meritocracy and creating opportunity inside institutions, his work has focused on the role that merit and merit-based organizational practices play in shaping employees’ careers in today’s workplaces. His work has appeared in Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, ILR Review, American Journal of Sociology, and American Sociological Review. He is currently on the editorial board of Work and Occupations, and is associate editor of Management Science (Organizations) and the ILR Review.
