Welcome to Alina's Website

Alina's field of specialisation is Labour Economics, combined with a interdisciplinary approach on Human Resource Management (HRM) and Behaviour in Organisations.

Her research interests include analysing the impact of HRM practices on job satisfaction, company performance and work effort, in Britain as well as in an international comparative context. Examples of HRM practices of interest incorporate both pecuniary and non-pecuniary workplace incentives and practices including: workplace flexibility practices (WFPs), workplace organisation, employee participation, job autonomy, job design, training, communication and consultation, job security, and various pay methods.

The primary research aim is to answer the fundamental need for practitioners, employees and academics to estimate the role of HRM practices in improving workplace employee and company outcomes. It also contributes to the wider goal of creating a stronger economy and achieving higher societal well-being.
