Winnie Jiang is an Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. Her research focuses on the dynamics of meaning-making at work, work as a calling, career mobility and transitions, and personal and professional development.

Winnie studies how the meaning of work relates to individuals’ objective and subjective career experience, organizational effectiveness, and changes. She seeks to answer questions such as how do individuals find, pursue, and sustain meaning in their work in complex and rapidly changing environments; how does individuals’ quest for meaning in work influence the organizations and institutions to which they belong; and how could organizations cultivate meaningful work experiences and career growth for the benefit of individuals, organizations, and society. Relatedly, Winnie is interested in human resource management, examining factors that help unleash employees’ fullest potential and actualize their purpose at work. Her research has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, and Organization Science.

Prior to joining INSEAD, Winnie completed her PhD in Management at Yale University.
