Stephanie J. Creary serves as a Research Associate in Human Capital at The Conference Board.
Creary's research interests include talent management, multi-generational workforce, diversity/inclusion, and crisis management. Her current research also explores "survivor syndrome" as it refers to the marked decrease in employee motivation, engagement, and productivity that arises particularly after downsizing and workforce reduction. She is also investigating the role that human resources plays in mitigating any potentially negative impact but also in driving human capital strategies under uncertain conditions.
Her publications for The Conference Board include: Leadership, Governance, and Accountability: A Pathway to a Diverse and Inclusive Organization and Mission Accomplished? What Every Leader Should Know About Surviving Corporate Downsizing.
Creary has also served as a Research Associate at Harvard Business School where she co-authored several case studies related to leadership, diversity/inclusion, and strategy and partnered with faculty to develop a management textbook.
She holds a master of business administration degree (with high honors) from Simmons School of Management, and a bachelor of science degree and a master of science degree from Boston University.
