Research interest

Konstantin’s research interests lie in the field of incentive systems and performance management. Particularly, in current projects, he investigates how implicit incentives such as promotion opportunities affect employee behavior, and how targets are established within a company.

Another focus of his research is talent management, i.e., how firms attract, select, and retain talent. Within this field, the topic of self-selection is of particular interest to him.

To address these research questions, Konstantin establishes and analyses empirical models based on micro-economic archival data. The connection between his research and practice are of particular importance to him, which is why he typically works closely with practice partners in this context.
