Seth Carnahan’s research examines firm strategy and labor markets.
He studies why some individuals get hired, get promoted, leave to join a competitor, or leave to start their own firms, with the goal of understanding how these individual career outcomes ultimately influence the performance of organizations.
His recent research examines whether corporate social responsibility initiatives help reduce turnover and whether managers’ political beliefs influence gender inequality in hiring and promotion. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation and the Kauffman Foundation
