Mariella Miraglia is a Senior Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management. Prior to joining the University of Liverpool Management School in 2018, she held a lectureship at Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia, and a post-doctoral fellowship at John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, Montréal, Canada. She obtained her PhD in Organisational Psychology for Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
Mariella's main research interest pertains to attendance behaviours in organisations, specifically absenteeism and presenteeism (attending work when sick). She investigates the individual and contextual drivers of such behaviours, their impact on individual wellbeing, and organisational practices/policies to manage attendance in the workplace. A further stream of her research regards performance management with a special focus on feedback and employee-supervisor interactions at work. In addition, she is interested in bottom-up job re-design initiatives, such as job crafting. Her work has been published in academic journals such as Academy of Management Annals, Human Relations, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, Human Resource Management, and Journal of Vocational Behavior.
Mariella welcomes enquiries from prospective PhD students interested in researching topics such as absenteeism and presenteeism, health and wellbeing in the workplace, job re-design, performance management.
