Brock scholar to talk impact of limited career advancements on employees

A stagnant career, resulting from limited opportunities for advancement in organizations, can ultimately affect employees’ efforts to speak up regarding organizational problems. Recent research studying this relationship is the focus of this week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series event.

On Friday, Sept. 23, Dirk De Clercq, Professor of Management at the Goodman School of Business, will delve into this topic with his talk “Career plateau beliefs and employee voice,” which is based on his paper published in the Journal of Management and Organization.

De Clercq is a leading organizational and entrepreneurial studies scholar, and his research interests cover entrepreneurship, organizational behaviour, human resource management and cross-country studies.

He has received numerous awards, including Brock University’s Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence, the Goodman School of Business Distinguished Researcher Award, the Departmental Researcher of the Year Award, the Faculty of Graduate Studies Graduate Mentorship Award, and the student-voted Beta Gamma Sigma Professor of the Year Award.

The Goodman speaker series provides Goodman faculty, staff and students with an informal opportunity to virtually listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues.

De Clercq’s talk will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in Sankey Chamber. Goodman faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. Members of the Brock community interested in attending are encouraged to email Crystal Li at to reserve a seat.
