Adam Seth Litwin is a founding member of the tenure-track faculty at the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University, where he has been an assistant professor of management since 2008. He also holds an appointment at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality.
Litwin’s research, anchored in employment relations, examines the interplay of human resource issues and technological change. His doctoral dissertation, completed at the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, focused specifically on employment relations and information technology in the healthcare industry. It won the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s annual prize for the top dissertation in industry studies.
Still largely grounded in healthcare, Litwin’s current projects examine a number of topics, including the employment relations and productivity impact of frontline employee involvement, as well as the employment relations determinants of innovation and investment. He has also recently embarked on a research program seeking to better understand the quality of those jobs created through entrepreneurship.
Litwin’s studies have appeared in employment relations and health and medical journals, including the Industrial and Labor Relations Review, Industrial Relations, Applied Clinical Informatics, and the International Review of Psychiatry.
He is a longtime Labor and Employment Relations Association member.
