Cassie Batz-Barbarich, M.A., is a human capital management researcher at SAP SuccessFactors.

As an industrial-organizational psychologist, Cassie takes both an individual and organizational perspective to examine the impact of a variety of workplace experiences and interactions. Her work focuses on employee’s well-being both at work and in life and understanding how organizational factors and workplace experiences impact an employee’s well-being and sense of meaning with the intention of intervening to ultimately improving both. Additionally, Cassie’s research has included an examination of gendered experiences at work, including workplace inequalities and gender differences in terms of traits, behaviors, and outcomes within the workplace. Cassie continues to actively publish and work in these areas, and will bring her expertise to the HCM team to produce research-based and impactful work.
