Lotta Harju

I am a researcher in work and organizational psychology and assistant professor in organizational behavior at emlyon since 2019. I am affiliated to Behavioral Research in Organizations (BRiO) and Lifestyle research groups. My research focuses on the relationships between how work is designed and organized and employee well-being and motivation. I am also interested in how norms and changes in working life affect employees’ affective experience. 

I obtained my PhD from KU Leuven (Belgium) and Aalto University School of Science (Finland) in 2017. Prior to joining emlyon, I worked at the School of Business and Economics at Vrije University Amsterdam, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and University of Canterbury in New Zealand. I am an editorial board member in Journal of Vocational Behavior. I also have several years of experience in developing and consulting on employee well-being and leadership in both public and private sector organizations.
