Brittany Bond

PhD Candidate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management

Brittany Bond is a PhD Candidate in Economic Sociology at the MIT Sloan School of Management. She researches how human resource programs, such as talent recruitment and performance management systems, shape career trajectories and impact both worker and firm long-term performance. In her dissertation research, Brittany shows how using forced distribution in employee performance evaluations can unintentionally demotivate top performers, resulting in greater likelihood of exit even when they receive the largest performance-based bonuses. Prior to coming to MIT, she was an economist at the U.S. Census Bureau’s Center for Economic Studies using internal Census hiring data in conjunction with national longitudinal linked employer-household data (LEHD) toward optimizing the 2020 Decennial Census hiring operations.
