Joseph C. Santora is a Distinguished Visiting Professor of Management and the Director of Research for our E-DBA Doctoral program at École des Pont Business School. We are proud to share Professor Santora’s latest work that was published in the European Journal of Training and Development.
“Implicit Assumptions in High Potentials Recruitment” was co-authored with Gil Bozer and Jan Posthumus of Sapir College in Israel and Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University in Germany. The article delves into how professionals of human resources (HR) use different criteria in practice versus what they openly verbalize. “Thus, the aim of this research was to identify the implicit criteria used for the selection of high-potential employees in recruitment and development settings in the pharmaceutical industry,” writes Professor Santora.
Professor Santora’s research focuses on coaching, executive succession and leadership transition in nonprofit organizations and family businesses.
