Dr Ceren Erdem is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Organisational Behaviour at the Henley Business School and is a member of the Centre of Social and Organisational Studies. Before joining Henley Business School, Ceren pursued her PhD in Employment Relationships and Organisational Behaviour at London School of Economics.
Ceren’s PhD research explored the coevolution of employees’ social relationships and their psychological contracts.
