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, mechanisms, behaviours, and outcomes within and between individual, interpersonal, group, and organizational levels of analysis.

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.

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.

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 – Big Data, Data Analytics and New Forms of Work: Implications for Individual and Organizational Level Attitudes and Behaviour
Fast paced changes in technology, computing and communication facilitate changes in the work environment. Many firms have introduced analytics based of big data to create efficiencies and enhance their agility. While many of these technologies are performance enhancing at the firm level, the impacts on employees are not well explored yet. As a result, many of these technologies enabled work practices have unknown consequences on health and well-being of employees, their willingness to embrace change and other work relevant employee and organizational level outcomes. The track aims to study these relationships with respect to core constructs in the OB/HRM domain.

T09_06 – Crafting Positive Organizational Behaviour with Work Meaningfulness, Mindfulness, and Work Engagement
This conference track, Crafting Positive Organizational Behaviour with Work Meaningfulness, Mindfulness, and Work Engagement, seeks researchers that focus on positive organizational behaviour studies that indicate positive states, traits and processes that arise from, and result in, enhanced strengths and psychological capabilities that support optimal behaviour for optimal functioning within organizations. Specifically, this track focuses on positive behaviour, states, traits, and/or processes related to job crafting, work meaningfulness, mindfulness, and work engagement. Research and discussions are welcome that focus on positive behaviour at the organizational, workgroup, and/or individual levels. Additionally, research from all sorts of epistemic and ontological stances are welcome.
