Tove Hammer : Biography

Tove Helland Hammer is Professor of Organizational Behavior at the ILR School, Cornell University. She received her BA in Psychology from Cornell University, and her MA and Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Maryland. After joining the Cornell faculty in 1974, her research moved from a focus on leadership and management to a long-term project on the performance effects of employee stock ownership, worker buy-outs, and forms of labor-management collaboration, including employee representation on corporate boards of directors. This work appeared in a series of journal articles, book chapters, and two co-edited books. Her current research includes large-scale field studies on the health effects of the physical and psycho-social work environment. The research has a special focus on how organizational level norms about work performance, social support, and reward systems influence the degree of work-family conflict, workplace bullying and harassment, job stress, and psychological and physical health. She holds Professor II positions in the Department of Psychology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and in the School of Hotel Management at the University in Stavanger (UiS), Norway. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society.
