CfP: EGOS Sub-Theme 55 – Managers and managerial behavior in countries in transition

The 34th EGOS Colloquium takes place from July 5th-8th 2018 at the EBS in Tallinn. The convenors of this sub-theme (see below) call for papers that will enhance the understanding of management behavior in countries in transition, by considering various possible factors that may have impact on management behavior in these societies, especially those not well-elaborated in the literature yet. This leaves researchers space to combine different behavioral and leadership theories, research perspectives and methodological approaches, which investigate management behavior in considered societies.

Example issues:

  • Management behavior in countries in transition from various perspectives
  • Key drivers of management behavior in countries in transition
  • The role of personal values for shaping management behavior in countries in transition

Convenors: Zlatko Nedelko, Tiit Elenurm and Thomas Steger

Deadline for the submission of short papers: 08.01.2018

CfP: GHRM Special Issue – Human Resource Management in Family Firms

Submissions are welcome that take the unique characteristics of family firms into account and that move beyond the idea of one-size-fits-all ‘best practices’ by addressing how family firms develop HR practices, take advantage of them, and bundle their practices into HR systems. By exploring these areas it is hoped to sharpen the theoretical underpinnings of the debate on HRM in family firms. Moreover, a contribution to an understanding of if/how family firms use HR practices to proactively address environmental dynamics, demographic change or innovation should be given.

Example questions regarding practices of HRM in family firms:

  • Do family firms use different practices of HRM than non-family firms (e.g., more informal, cultural or complex)?
  • How do different bundles of HR practices relate to the pursuit and achievement of financial or non-financial goals?
  • Are family firms more effective in the design of high-performance work systems than nonfamily firms?
  • […]

Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 31.10.2017

Editors of the Special Issue: Andreas Hack (University of Bern, Switzerland & Witten/Herdecke University), Franz W. Kellermanns (University of North Carolina at Charlotte, U.S. & WHU) and Christina Hoon (Bielefeld University).

CfP: EGOS Sub-Theme 21 – Overwork, Identity and the Autonomy/Control Paradox in Professional Organizations

The 34th EGOS Colloquium takes place from July 5th-8th 2018 in Tallinn. The above mentioned sub-theme invites researchers who study the relationship between identity, autonomy, and overwork in professional service organizations.

Professionals have traditionally been theorized as enjoying higher levels of autonomy regarding the where, when and how of work. Yet, research also reveals that most professional workplaces are characterized by a persistent, autonomy-reducing regime of excessive working hours (60–120 hours/week) and escalating availability to clients and superiors. Even when firms try to alleviate extra-long hours regimes by promoting work-life balance and flexible work arrangements, overwork usually persists. This sub-theme seeks to advance current knowledge of the totalizing nature of professional work. It invites empirical and theoretical papers.

CfP: EDI Special Issue – Perspectives on Diversity and Equality in Under-Researched Countries

The purpose of this special issue is to restore diversity and equality to its national contexts by shedding light on under-researched countries, including countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.

Papers should deal with, but not necessarily be limited to, the following example questions:

  • Is there an equal treatment or affirmative action legislation in the country and if so since when?
  • Even in the absence of such legislation, is there a public debate about diversity in the country of study, and if so, what is this debate, and concerning what aspect of diversity? How and when was it started – if it was started at all?
  • Is there empirical research about diversity in the country of study and what are the main findings and/or contributions?
  • […]

CfP: Special Issue – Organizational Working Time Regimes: Managerial, Occupational and Institutional Perspectives on Extreme Work
