The purpose of the OB SIG is to develop an ongoing and constructive dialogue among organizational behaviour scholars and practitioners to conduct research that is relevant for management theory and practice in the contemporary world. The OB SIG aims at promoting research and networking interests in individual and group behaviour in the organizational context by providing a wide-ranging, engaged and internationally-focused forum to discuss and develop research and practice in the field. In addition to well-established topics the OB SIG is open to and wants to encourage submissions to different new streams of research in private, public and non-profit organizations.

GT09_00 Organisational Behaviour - SIG General Track

The OB General Track is open to all papers that broadly fall into the domain of Organizational Behaviour but are not covered by the various other tracks of the OB SIG. The OB General Track is open to a variety of themes on both well-established topics and new streams of research in public, private and non-profit organizations. The submitted papers might be dealing with the attributes, processes, mechanism, behaviours, and outcomes within and between individual, interpersonal, group, and organizational levels of analysis.

ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR SIG STANDING TRACK

ST09_01 - Human Resource Management

The standing track covers the complete field of HRM research, promoting theory and research development on important substantive and methodological topics in the field. Papers proposals falling within the broad domain of HRM will be considered, spanning from micro HRM to strategic HRM and international HRM subfields. Empirical studies, theoretical contributions and interdisciplinary research are welcome. The track aims at providing opportunities to reflect on the latest research in the field and strengthen international collaborations.

ST09_02 - Team Performance Management

The standing track welcomes papers that study individuals in teams (e.g., how multiple-team membership impacts on individual learning and adaptation, how individual performance is influenced by team dynamics), teams as units (dynamic views on team processes, antecedents and consequences of team performance, team emergent states, team training, empirically supported team interventions, virtual teams) as well as the inter-team dynamics in larger social systems (e.g., multi-team systems dynamics and effectiveness, multiparty systems). The research topic is inclusive and we expect papers that use or combine theoretical insights from a variety of disciplines.

ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR SIG TRACK

T09_03 - Knowledge Sharing and Diversity

Globalization has resulted in migration of talents and this further has given advantage for organizations across nations to be more diversified through different demographic, ethnicity, social and cultural backgrounds of individuals. However, diversified workforce can constitute challenges to organization in terms of member's knowledge sharing. When some members resist to share their knowledge, it can create a strong impact on overall organization success. This track addresses the understanding on how diversified individual’s propensity towards knowledge sharing affects organizations and the approaches to handle such issues through multidisciplinary perspective focusing on individual and group behaviour, knowledge and diversity management.

T09_04 - Leadership

Leadership is a popular topic and core construct of interest within the field of organizational behavior, as it is a crucial factor influencing a range of organizational outcomes as well as employee well-being and health (among others). In light of its relevance and prevalence, we have created a specific track within EURAM to collect and curate related leadership research. This leadership track is purposefully broad to appeal to multiple paradigms and approaches spanning numerous EURAM topics. However, given our primary affiliation with the Organisational Behaviour SIG, we especially encourage micro- and multi-level theoretical and empirical papers.

T09_05 - Meanings, Meaningfulness and Mindfulness: Cognitive, Social and Emotional Approaches to Management

Meanings, meaningfulness and mindfulness are distinct concepts that have in common the fact that can be studied using cognitive, social and emotional approaches. Previous research evidenced the relationship between these concepts and wellbeing and performance. In this Conference topic, we challenge our colleagues investigating under these or other related themes to join us in a flourishing and productive way. Research from all sorts of epistemic and ontological stances are welcome, including both qualitative and quantitative studies, particularly those with an action research and/or intervention approach.

T09_06 - Motivation and Trust: Current Links and Challenges

Work motivation is a longstanding topic in organizational studies and several theories and constructs have been proposed to explain which factors compel individuals to initiate action, to work hard and sustain their effort. Moreover, job and work environment characteristics, national culture and the person-organization fit have been recognized as determinants that can play a significant role in generating motivation. Starting both from these premises and from the more recent approaches to the study of work motivation the track aims at exploring the relation of motivation to organizationally relevant antecedents and outcomes such as trust, leadership,  goal-setting, and organizational justice.

T09_07 - Organisational Cognition: Theories, Applications and Advancements

This topic is designed to attract papers on different aspects of cognition research applied to and concerning organisations. Submissions are very much encouraged from diverse theoretical perspectives—e.g., computationalism and its opposite, social identity theory, mental representationalism and its critics, sensemaking—as well as from different disciplinary traditions even if outside organisational behaviour—e.g., cognitive psychology, social cognition, cognitive science, artificial intelligence. There  are no restrictions on methodological grounds either: the topic is open to qualitative, quantitative, and computational and mathematical simulation studies.
