Professor Sabina Siebert
- Professor of Management (Management)
I currently work as a Professor of Management in the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow. With my background in linguistics, literature and cultural studies I started my career as a tutor in British culture in the University of Łódź, and a tutor in Slavonic culture at the University of Glasgow. My interest in social-cultural theory and research into representations of working-class culture brought me closer to the area organisational sociology, which consequently led to a move to Caledonian Business School where I worked in the Department of People Management, and the Department of Cultural Business. In 2010 I moved to the University of Glasgow where I research and teach in the area of change management, organizational behaviour and human resource management.
Sabina is a member of the Human Resource Management & Organisational Behaviour research cluster.
