Yoon,David Jeehyun

Teaching Assistant
Work & Organizations

David Yoon is a doctoral student at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. The mission of his research career is to discover factors that make a workplace a happier place to be. In his journey to seek out these factors, he focuses on power dyanimcs in organizations and how they impact work relationships and well-being, individual traits that make leaders more effective, emotions that aid in maintaining well-being at work, and mistreatments that occur at work that impede one's pursuit of well-being at work.

Prior to his doctoral studies, David worked as an compensation and expatriate analyst in a Fortune 500 company, where he managed expatriate compensation and tax equalization process across countries, analyzed salary surveys and guided line managers in salary planning, and conducted job evaluations to establish competitive compensation packages for new positions. David was also an HR research fellow at another Fortune 500 company, where he developed action plans for Six Sigma recruiting projects, proposed global integrated supply chain HR metrics, and collaborated with HR managers in developing formal exit interview processes.
