Human Resources Forum

Theme: Reorganization of work in a pandemic context

Wednesday 3 Jun 2020
From 10AM To 12PM


CIRANO invited its partners on June 3, 2020 to an exclusive Human Resources Forum on the theme of work reorganization in a pandemic context (telework, mental health in times of pandemic, performance, labour market).

Three CIRANO Researchers, Sylvie St-Onge, Maude Boulet and Fabian Lange, presented their past and current research.

A period of exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge between CIRANO's partners and the researchers was followed by a brainstorming session that confirmed CIRANO's position as a gathering place that facilitates collaboration between research and the business world.

Fabian Lange

A CIRANO Researcher and Fellow since 2011, Main Researcher of the theme Skills, Fabian Lange is Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at McGill University. He is also Program Director Industrial Relations Major, Director of the Montreal Partnership for Human Resource Management and Holder of the Canada Research Chair in Labor and Personnel Economics.

Holding a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Chicago, he pursues interests in population, health and labour economics.

After receiving his Ph.D. in 2004, he joined the Department of Economics at Yale University as an Assistant Professor. In 2010, he was promoted to Associate Professor at Yale. He joined the economics department at McGill University in 2012. Fabian held visiting positions at the University of Chicago, Oberlin College, and the University of Michigan.

In population economics, he studied the link between schooling and fertility decisions. He has published work on the trade-offs between increased fertility and education (the quantity-quality model) using data sources from the historical American South. In health economics, he studies the determinants of the socio-economic gradient in health. He asks what role information processing, cognitive ability, and education play in generating socio-economic gradients in health? Further, he develops and estimates models of health dynamics and uses these to study the socio-economic gradient in health. In labour economics, his research interests concern how workers careers are shaped by processes of information revelation. In particular, he studies the role of employer learning in generating earnings inequality as individuals age. He also studies stigma due to prolonged unemployment and its implications for optimal unemployment insurance schemes.

He received the H.G. Lewis Prize 2006-2007, the IZA Young Labor Economist Award 2008 and the John Rae Prize of the Canadian Economic Association 2016.
