Joerg Dietz is Full Professor of Organizational Behavior at HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne.

His research interests include:

Workforce diversity and inclusiveness: Joerg examines what organizations need to do (and what they should not do) in order to build and benefit from a diverse workforce.

Climates for excellent service: His research shows how organizations can build climates for service that raise customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Organizations as parts of their communities: Joerg’s research shows the impact of external influences (e.g., crime in which the community is located) on organizations’ internal matters (e.g., employee and supervisor relations and conduct). The work highlights that the success of many managerial policies is also a function of external influences that managers must consider and often can also shape.

His research has been published in prestigious academic journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, the Journal of Applied Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and in practical reviews such as the Academy of Management Executive.

Joerg Dietz received his PhD in Organizational Behavior from Tulane University (New Orleans, LA) in 2000. Before joining UNIL, he taught at the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. Prior to this academic career, Joerg worked in the banking sector for ten years.
