Dr. Richardson currently has three main areas of research interest: internationally mobile professionals; flexible/remote work practices and the careers of ex-athletes/sportspeople. Her interest in internationally mobile professionals focuses on the implications of moving between countries for career advancement and for family relationships - especially for dual career couples. Her work on flexible and remote work practices examines the impact of such practices on individual performance, life balance and career opportunities and advancement. This research also explores 'best practices' for managers with responsibility for overseeing the performance of remote working teams. Dr. Richardson has also just recently started developing a project exploring the career experiences of ex-athletes/professional sportspeople. This latest project aims to look at why some people pursue a career in professional sports and what happens when they are no longer able to compete. For example, it will explore the idea of sports as a 'calling'. This project will involve a cross-national collaboration with scholars in New Zealand.

Dr. Richardson has conducted extensive research on internationally mobile professionals including those who have pursued careers in Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada. She is currently exploring the implications of international mobility for mining professionals as part of a joint international project with Dr. Steve McKenna. As part of this project she is also looking at the careers of women in the mining industry and the extent to which their international experience impacts on their career opportunities and experiences. Dr. Richardson has also been working with Dr. Jelena Zikic, another colleague in the School of HRM, on a study examining the experiences of international medical professionals and international information technology professionals in Canada. Dr. Richardson's interest in flexible work practices focuses on the implications of remote working for individual and organizational performance and work-life balance. She has recently conducted a large-scale cost-benefit analysis of flexible work practices in Canada as well as a qualitative study of flexible work arrangements in a hi-tech multinational company, also in Canada. Her book 'New Ways of Organizing Work' co-edited with Dr. Clare Kelliher from Cranfield University in the UK provides an insight into changing work practices in Asia, North America, Europe and Australia and the implications for individual and organizational performance. Dr. Richardson's latest project exploring the careers of professional athletes will explore why people might pursue a career in sport, what the influences on in this particular career choice and, just as importantly, what happens when they are no longer able to compete - what opportunities are available to them? She is hoping that this study will evolve into an international collaboration with scholars in New Zealand to allow for a comparison between Canadian and New Zealand athletes. Dr. Richardson has published extensively including articles in the following journals: British Journal of Management, Journal of World Business, Management International Review, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Career Development International, International Journal of Cross-Cultural Management, Personnel Review, Canadian Journal of Administrative Studies, amongst others. She has also published numerous book chapters and two books. Dr. Richardson has extensive professional experience in UK, Japan, Indonesia, the Middle East, New Zealand and Singapore and is currently Associate Editor for the International Journal of Management Reviews and for Career Development International. She was awarded her PhD from the University of Otago in New Zealand and is currently teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Organizational Behaviour, Qualitative Research Methods and Career Management at York University. She also teaches graduate courses in Career Management and Qualitative Research Methods and was recently a visiting professor teaching Organizational Leadership on the University of Otago's MBA Programme in New Zealand.

Approach To Teaching

Dr. Richardson is currently teaching several courses at graduate (Masters and Doctorate) and undergraduate level. She has taught career management on the SHRM's Masters in HRM program, exploring themes relating to career choice, organizational approaches to talent management such as 'hi-potential programs', professional networks and career opportunities, managing 'career capital' and international careers. She also teaches qualitative research methods on the SHRM's doctoral program where students are required to design and execute their own qualitative study. Her undergraduate teaching includes organizational behavior (2nd year course), career management (4th year course) and qualitative research methods (4th year course). Dr. Richardson's approach to teaching is centered on encouraging student engagement with course content so that they can appreciate both the theoretical and practical application of the respective subject be it career management, organizational behavior or qualitative research methods. There is a strong experiential component to all of her courses where students are actively involved in designing their own projects and conducting interviews on the respective topic.


Dr. Richardson currently has three main areas of research interest: internationally mobile professionals; flexible/remote work practices and the careers of ex-athletes/sportspeople. Her interest in internationally mobile professionals focuses on the implications of moving between countries for career advancement and for family relationships - especially for dual career couples. Her work on flexible and remote work practices examines the impact of such practices on individual performance, life balance and career opportunities and advancement. This research also explores 'best practices' for managers with responsibility for overseeing the performance of remote working teams. Dr. Richardson has also just recently started developing a project exploring the career experiences of ex-athletes/professional sportspeople. This latest project aims to look at why some people pursue a career in professional sports and what happens when they are no longer able to compete. For example, it will explore the idea of sports as a 'calling'. This project will involve a cross-national collaboration with scholars in New Zealand.

Teaching:

Approach To Teaching
Dr. Richardson is currently teaching several courses at graduate (Masters and Doctorate) and undergraduate level. She has taught career management on the SHRM's Masters in HRM program, exploring themes relating to career choice, organizational approaches to talent management such as 'hi-potential programs', professional networks and career opportunities, managing 'career capital' and international careers. She also teaches qualitative research methods on the SHRM's doctoral program where students are required to design and execute their own qualitative study. Her undergraduate teaching includes organizational behavior (2nd year course), career management (4th year course) and qualitative research methods (4th year course). Dr. Richardson's approach to teaching is centered on encouraging student engagement with course content so that they can appreciate both the theoretical and practical application of the respective subject be it career management, organizational behavior or qualitative research methods. There is a strong experiential component to all of her courses where students are actively involved in designing their own projects and conducting interviews on the respective topic.
