Eugene Ohu is a full time faculty in the department of Organisational Behaviour / Human Resource Management at the Lagos Business School.

Dr Eugene Ohu is a senior lecturer and the head of the department of Organisational Behaviour/Human Resource Management. His teaching areas include Management Communication, Human Behaviour in Organisations and Digital Marketing in the MBA and Executive Education programs of the Lagos Business School. He was recently appointed by the University of the West Indies as an External Examiner for the ArthurLok Jack Global School of Business.

His current research interests are on the psychology of human-computer interactions in the workplace, in order to promote individual wellbeing and organizational productivity. He is also intrigued by how people navigate their multiple roles across work and non-work domains. As technology introduces flexibility in the nature, design and how work is done, Dr. Ohu studies the implications for work-life balance that this permeability introduces. Finally, as computers now make it easier to collect and analyse behavioural data about people and business processes, he uses “Big Data” to provide insights useful for human resource and marketing communications decisions.

Eugene belongs to the following professional associations: Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology (SIOP); Academy of Management (AOM) and the Association for Business Communication (ABC).  For all, he regularly serves as an ad-hoc peer reviewer. He consults with Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies on gaining management and marketing insights from digital data. He also assists HR departments on the High Performance Work Systems (HPWS) that motivate employees for increased productivity through work-life balance.  He is also involved in some workplace safety studies.

Dr. Ohu is on the executive board of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA), the managers of the .ng country code domain.  He is also an entrepreneurship mentor on the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) entrepreneurship programme. Eugene speaks and writes Italian and Spanish fluently, and has a fair mastery of French. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from the University of Benin, a postgraduate diploma in education from the University of Calabar, and a PhD in Institutional/Social Communications from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome, Italy.
