Jae Yun Kim is an Assistant Professor of the School of Business at SUSTech. His work focuses on the relation between motivation, and organizational and social issues. He primarily examines how popular ideas about self-help and self-improvement (e.g., empowerment messages, advice to pursue one's passion, the belief in the power of the mind and thinking) shape perceptions of fairness, inequality, and legitimacy.
My research lies at the intersection of motivation, and organizational and social justice. Specifically, my primary research stream examines how popular ideas about self-improvement(e.g., empowerment messages)shape people’s understandings of organizational and social issues, including responsibility for inequality, poor worker treatment, and unfair career outcomes.
