Jaime Ortega is an Associate Professor of Management at Carlos III University in Madrid. He holds a Ph. D. degree in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Licenciate degree in Economics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He is currently the MBA Program Director at the university. 

Jaime Ortega's research studies the economic costs and benefits of human resource management (HRM) practices. In a context of strong competitive pressure, firms have increasingly introduced HRM practices to improve employees' individual performance and firm-level economic outcomes. In this endeavor, they are confronted with numerous questions about how employees should be rewarded (paid/promoted), how jobs should be designed, and how reward policies should be combined with job design choices. Answers are not simple because economic incentives can be very powerful, but can also generate large distortions. Choosing between alternative HRM practices thus requires understanding the relevant economic trade-offs, carefully recognizing the costs and benefits of the practices. Recent developments in big data availability make these questions more pressing while also providing novel opportunities to address them. 

Professor Ortega's work has been published in Management Science, The Accounting Review, Journal of Economics and Management Strategy, Industrial and Labor Relations Review, Industrial Relations, among others; and he is a member of the Journal of Participation and Employee Ownership editorial advisory board.
