Hilary studies purpose in organizations, particularly the individual- and group-level implications of working for a valued cause. How does sharing a purpose influence employees’ organizational identification, ethical behavior, and collaboration?

A former freelance writer and editor, Hilary watched collective purpose emerge within the gig economy. She hopes her research will help individuals and organizations create a sense of belonging in the new world of work.
