Dr Bindl conducts research in two primary areas: (1) motivation in organizations, and (2) employee well-being. The majority of her research addresses the following questions: When and why do individuals in organisations engage in proactive behaviour, that is, bring about change in the organisation or in their own job? How do individuals actively manage their own and others’ well-being at work? Overall, she explores the influence of the social context in organizations on employees’ motivation and well-being.
