His research on downsizing and turnover rates at 200 companies was awarded the 2009 Scholarly Achievement Award for the best article of the year from the Human Resources Division of the Academy of Management. In “Keeping Your Headcount When All About You Are Losing Theirs: Downsizing, Voluntary Turnover Rates, and the Moderating Role of HR Practices,” Trevor and his co-author, Anthony Nyberg (Ph.D. ’09), found that downsizing can set off an exodus among retained employees that in some cases is much greater than the reduction achieved through the layoffs. Charlie teaches courses on employee compensation, research methods, and HR systems. He received his Ph.D. in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University.
