I currently hold a scholarship from QUT to undertake my PhD at the School of Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations, QUT Business School. My research interests are strategic employee behaviours, internal communication, and employee engagement in organisational contexts. The main objectives of my research are to understand the cognitive, affective, and behavioural attributes of a strategic subordinate and how they can be influenced by internal communication and employee engagement. Using a mixed methods research approach, I investigate subordinates’ perceptions and understanding on the attributes that make up a strategic subordinate in a public organisation in Malaysia. I believe the findings of my research are key to guide both organisations and employees on how to support the enactment of a strategic subordinate which potentially contribute more outcomes than just being engaged.

When everyone else seems to be working hard at their work, the strategic subordinate stands out from the rest in unique ways - the one who works smart cognitively, affectively, and behaviourally.
