Frederik Anseel is a Full Professor of Work Psychology and Behavioral Economics and Department Chair at Ghent University. The people make the place is the lens through which he studies and consults with companies. Without a profound insight in the underlying psychological principles that determine how people behave at work, one cannot understand why some organizations prosper, while others don’t. As the founder of the VIGOR Innovation Research Group, he built a team of scientific experts and entrepreneurs in creativity and innovation, which resulted in the Ghent University spin-off’s 'The Vigor Unit' and “The Forge”. Since 2013 he also holds the Securex Chair “Working in the 21st century: Creating business results through a personalized organization”. His research has been published in journals such Journal of Applied Psychology, Psychological Science and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.
