Neveen Saied

Doctoral Researcher, People Management & Leadership

Neveen’s award-winning research focuses on how gig economy workers shape their identities in the new world of work.

Neveen Saied is currently pursuing a PhD at Vlerick – and her research is focused on independent workers.

More people are choosing to work independently instead of as regular full-time employees – and their professional experiences can be very different. They usually suffer from precarious work conditions that often lead to social and financial insecurities. As part of her research, Neveen is investigating how workers shape their identities in this new world of work, as well as how the relationship between workers and their clients can affect outcomes like performance and client satisfaction.

For the past 11 years, Neveen has worked in management and leadership roles with governments, international NGOs and private enterprises across four continents. She has also worked as a master trainer and a coach, where she trained professionals in various transferable skills.

Neveen presented her research at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2021. She received the third best paper award in the EURAM 2021 Doctoral Colloquium. She also works as a leadership tutor on Vlerick’s Online MBA.
