Dr. Jones completed his Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology at the University of Calgary in Canada. David conducts research on how job seekers and employees respond to an organization's socially and environmentally responsible business practices. He also studies employees' perceptions of fairness in the workplace: how people judge fairness and unfairness, and the processes that explain why they respond through cooperative behavior, turnover, revenge, and counterproductive behavior (e.g., wasting time, theft). David is active in presenting his work at scholarly conferences like the annual meetings of the Academy of Management and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and has published his research in journals that include Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, and the Journal of Organizational Behavior. David serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Management and Journal of Organizational Behavior.

In his work with organizations, David has applied principles of workplace fairness to projects within government, retail, and information technology sectors. For instance, in one project David and his colleague trained managers of a retail store in the principles of workplace fairness and their evaluation of the training showed that employees' perceptions of fairness and cooperative work behaviors increased from before to after the training. David has worked with other organizations to help design and evaluate their employee volunteerism programs. For instance, he worked with the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) Foundation to study how GMCR's company-funded volunteerism program affects employee attitudes and behaviors (e.g., Are employees more committed, proud, and loyal as a result of their opportunities to volunteer through the program?). David also served for two years on the Board of Directors, and a term as Chair of the Board, for a non-profit organization called the New Sudan Education Initiative whose mission was to build secondary schools in South Sudan.
