Bio

Sandy Hershcovis is an associate professor in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources at the Haskayne School of Business. Her research focuses on understanding the social context of workplace mistreatment (e.g., workplace bullying, incivility, and abusive supervision). In particular, she is currently interested in witness reactions to workplace mistreatment with a focus on witness intervention. Her research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Sandy has published her research in leading journals in her field, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the Journal of Business Ethics. She recently co-edited a book for Cambridge University Press' Research Companion series on the topic of workplace aggression. She also serves as the Associate Editor of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, and on several editorial boards, including: the Journal of Applied Psychology, Human Relations, the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, and Occupational Health Science.  

Sandy joined Haskayne in 2015. She holds a PhD and an MSc in Management from Queen's University, and a BComm from the University of Calgary.
