Blake Ashforth

Blake Ashforth joined the W. P. Carey School of Business in 1996. Professor Ashforth’s research interest focuses on how organizations and individuals affect each other; on newcomer socialization and work adjustment, including how newcomers find meaning and a sense of identity in their work and workplaces; and on what organizations can do to ease their transition to work. Ashforth also investigates why things often go wrong in organizations, from corporate corruption to job burnout. His most recent research explores how individuals find dignity in stigmatized occupations and the importance of respect to employees.

Before joining W. P. Carey, Ashforth was an associate professor of management at Concordia University. He received his bachelor’s degree in commerce and doctorate in organizational behavior from the University of Toronto, Canada.

Professor Ashforth has served as an associate editor for the Academy of Management Review and Organization Science. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management.
