Professor Glen Kreiner received his Ph.D. in Business Administration from Arizona State University and a B.A. in Communications and a Master's of Organizational Behavior from Brigham Young University. Professor Kreiner serves on the editorial boards for the Academy of Management Journal, the Academy of Management Review, and Administrative Science Quarterly and reviews regularly for several leading management journals. He has published his research in the Academy of Management Review, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Human Relations, Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice, and Human Resource Management Review. His research findings have also been reported on by the Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, and print and broadcast news organizations internationally. He has received two prestigious awards from the Academy of Management's Organizational Behavior Division: (1) Best Conference Paper, 2006, for "Boundary work tactics: Negotiating the work-home interface"; and (2) Outstanding Publication, 2007, for "Where is the 'Me' among the 'We': Identity work and the search for optimal balance". He has also won two major awards for his work-family balance research with Elaine Hollensbe and Mathew Sheep - the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for best publication in work-family research and the Best Paper Award from the Society for Industrial & Organizational Psychology.
His research areas include role transitions (how people alternate among their many roles), dirty work (how workers and managers in stigmatized occupations deal with stigma), emotions in the workplace (such as how people shift from one emotion to another as part of their work), social identification (how individuals define themselves by their jobs, organizations, and professions), and organization identity change (how organizations respond to threats/changes to their identity). Currently, he is engaging in a multi-method, long-term research project on the Episcopal Church ("The Episcopal Identity Project"). He is also conducting research on temporary workers, stigmatized managers, organizational responses to allegations of corruption, and the social and systemic factors involved in the recent subprime mortgage financial crisis.
