Research interests

  • Proactive behaviour
  • Feedback-seeking
  • Occupational stress
  • Work motivation

Francesco’s research has largely been focused on understanding the consequences of employee proactivity using diary methods and experience sampling. His research shows that proactivity has mostly positive consequences for employee well-being, but that under certain circumstances being proactive can cause strain and expose employees to risks. Francesco’s research explores the mechanisms and factors that shape such processes, with the goal of understanding not only how to create a proactive workforce, but also how to sustain it in the long-term.

Research projects

Francesco is currently working on a project aimed at understanding how work characteristics and leadership behaviour influence the extent to which employees proactively seek feedback about their performance.
