Prof. Guido Friebel holds the Chair for Human Resources at Goethe University in Frankfurt. After completing his studies of economics in Bielefeld, and his Ph.D. at the Université Libre de Bruxelles he held positions at the Stockholm School of Economics and at the Toulouse School of Economics (EHESS). In 30 internationally published research papers he has analyzed problems of HR management and of organizational design, in particular concerning the effect of incentive systems, hierarchical and team organizations as well as gender issues in organizations. He collaborates with organizations in field experiments (RCTs) in order to test his theories. He firmly believes that increasing efficiency can go along with better pay for employees and higher job satisfaction.
