CALL FOR CHAPTERS
Forthcoming edited book Routledge Human Centered Management Book Series
Title:
Human Centered Management: Counterbalancing Workplace Disruptions with Resilience and Agility for Wellbeing and Sustainability
In March 2021 Routledge’s Human Centered Management HCM Series published a Trilogy of books entitled Human Centered Organizational Culture: Global Dimensions, Soft Skills for Human Centered Management and Global Sustainability, and Sensible Leadership. Human Centered, Insightful and Prudent. These books have received high degree of attention from global audiences and a unique aspect was timing. In 2020, when the books were in the production process, editors and chapter contributors, scholars from 49 countries in 5 Continents, writing chapters realized that despite geographical distances across the world, we were experiencing similar and unprecedented challenges that were deeply disrupting affecting the workplace. Later on, in 2021, we became fully aware that we had all been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. None of us had lived through anything like it in our lives. At that time we were unable to identify causes and foresee the effects of the major disruptions caused by the pandemic that were impacting people and workplaces. As a result, we are publishing this book to respond to the unprecedented challenges we shared.
This book will identify and explore innovative solutions improving enhancing benefits and minimizing costs of temporal and long-lasting disruptions affecting workplaces, threatening wellbeing of people, hindering performance and productivity deterring quality standards essential to attain long-term sustainability in the global VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) environment. The book will integrate theoretical constructs, empirical evidence and case studies embedded in core elements of Human Centered Management (HCM) targeting innovation and solutions for counterbalancing impact of disruptions in workplaces across industries, sectors and countries worldwide. To achieve objectives, chapters must promote the wellbeing of people as necessary condition for securing long- term sustainability of structures and strategies in human centered organizations pursuing high performance. To achieve HCM objectives, chapters must clearly transcend traditional, static inward-looking human resource management (HRM) approaches and focus on the unique inward-outward looking organizational scope central to Human Centered Management.

On behalf of Sara, Michela, and Lene.
Call for papers for the EURAM 2021 ONLINE conference (https://conferences.euram.academy/2021conference/) – track  T03_12 –  Female entrepreneurship Track (in the attached file).
The deadline for Paper Submission is set for 12 January 2021 at 2:00 pm Belgian time.
For EURAM 2021, you can choose whether to submit for a competitive session or a development paper (DP) session.
DPs are not a scaled-down version of full papers or incomplete work-in-progress of them. On the contrary, they are papers proposing novel approaches, new perspectives, integrating different disciplines that need some further refinement and discussion before they can be proposed to a broader audience.
DPs are particularly, but not exclusively, aimed at Ph.D. students and young researchers in the field of Entrepreneurship.
Due to their promising exploratory nature, they ask for careful attention by Authors.
If you are interested in submitting for a DP session, please consider that:
  • If your DP is empirical, the theoretical background, the conceptual development of hypotheses, the data collection, and the analysis have to be clearly stated.
  • If your DP is conceptual, the theoretical background, the conceptual development of propositions, and the discussion have to be clearly stated.
  • You have to clearly state in the first row of the paper, before introduction, that it is a candidate for a “Development Paper Session” (against a “Competitive Paper Session”). Please note that, if this statement is missing in your paper, it will be automatically considered for the Competitive Paper Session.
  • The minimum length for submitting a paper to EURAM is 10 pages. Be sure to fit this requirement! You can find all the Guidelines at the following link: https://conferences.euram.academy/2021conference/authors-guidelines-for-full-papers/
If you have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Sara, Michela, and/or Lene, the organizers of the track T03_12.

Our SIG on Work-Life Issues Among Entrepreneurs is organizing a symposium in the 2019 8th CWF conference (Malta, May 23-25, 2019). Here is the link to the conference website.
Are you interested in participating with a presentation related to our SIG topic?
It would be wonderful to see you there!
I need to know ASAP to prepare a proposal of 1000 words (deadline Nov. 30th, 2018). Full papers will be required by April 30, 2019.
Let me know! You can send me:
  • the authors' names
  • affiliations, 
  • tentative title,
  • and the idea (in the form of an abstract of 100-200 words, executive summary, or full paper... whatever is convenient to you).
If we gather more than 3-4 presentations (which we already have), we can suggest to the organizers the creation of another session. What do you think!

The WFRN provides a number of ways for members to connect with one another who share common research interests. One important resource are the special interest groups (SIGs), which enable WFRN members to share information, network, collaborate, write “research spotlight” reports, and organize sessions for the next WFRN conference. Members may add or drop networking affiliations at any time. There is currently no fee for joining a networking community, but those participating are expected to keep their WFRN membership current.
Contact me (kathykuschel@gmail.com) for inclusion to the listserv.
We are currently developing resources on the WFRN website that will further help members of networking communities share resources and connect with one another.
To contact the SIG members, please write to wfrn-work-life-issues-entrepreneurs@lists.wfrn.org

This review presents a synthesis and a critique of the development of the existing work-family (WF) literature during the last decade in order to highlight gaps and limitations in current research. The study revises 83 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and conference presentations (2004-2014) related to WF in economics, management and psychology disciplines, and classifies the current research into three broad themes for future research paths: i) definitions and theories; ii) background and outcomes of WF conflict, balance and enrichment; and iii) methodological gaps. Advances have been made this decade on meta-analysis and the understanding of the positive side of WF interface. Future research opportunities in this field will include a deeper understanding of how to effectively cope with WF conflict, how to achieve WF enrichment, the use of different methods (qualitative, longitudinal and experimental studies) on samples of new occupations, and how researchers could address methodological problems (causality, endogeneity, simultaneity, effect size, and self-selection bias) to better handle the complexity of WF issues.

Entrepreneurship is an ancient trade in world history but its formal study pioneered by Schumpeter and Drucker is fairly recent. Then there is still a great deal to learn and particularly about women’s participation in entrepreneurship and economic activity. A field that has intensified in the last decades with increasing prospects to foster change and economic development at global scale given that women are 52% of the world population. A global study conducted by McKinsey shows that women’s participation in economic activity will be one of the key elements to foster productivity, economic growth and social development in the future. The authors of this PDW undertake the challenge to assess the past, present and future of women entrepreneurs and project women as agents for positive change to increase well-being at individual and collective level, including families, communities and economies worldwide and reduce income inequality worldwide.

This paper examines differences between the presently self-employed (SE Present; n D 727: Business Owners D 249; independents D 478) with organizationally employed individuals who intend to become self-employed (SE Aspirants; n D 538) using the National Study for the Changing Workforce. We tested 11 hypotheses derived from the job demands-resources and conservation of resources theories. The strongest differences between SE Present and SE Aspirants were autonomy, hours worked, turnover intentions, and work interfering with family. No significant gender differences were found. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.
This study examined differences between self-employed married women (N=206) who were independently self-employed (ISE) and those whose self-employment involved owning a business with employees (Owners). ISEs were significantly more likely to report higher flexibility in managing work and family, that their schedule met their needs, and higher job satisfaction. Owners reported significantly higher work interfering with family (WIF), work hours, and were more likely to attend to work demands over family demands. Regression analysis revealed differential predictors of WIF for ISEs and Owners. Schedule fit, work hours, and depression were significant for ISEs. Life satisfaction was significant for Owners.
