Dr Deepika Jindal

PhD; MBA; Master of Higher Education (2020-2022: currently pursuing)


My career objective is to contribute to the field of human resource management through teaching, research, and practice. My PhD research focused on the impact of implementation of HRM practices by supervisors on work engagement, job crafting, and job performance of employees. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked for a large Indian manufacturing conglomerate (Trident Ltd.) for around 10 years in the strategy and HRM area. I have been teaching at the University of Auckland Business School since February 2014, on various courses related to business, general management and HRM. On a personal front, I have a “can do” attitude towards life. I love to volunteer and am fully engaged in work that I find meaningful and challenging. I consider work environment as an important determinant of my own engagement and am always on the lookout for projects that are aligned with my needs and abilities.
