    Summary:

    Recent years have seen a rapid uptake of algorithms in the workplace, both in standard employment settings and in new types of work such as the gig economy. Algorithmic management, defined as a system of control that relies on machine-readable data and software algorithms that support and/or automate managerial decision-making about work, has been introduced in the human-computer interaction (HCI) literature in the context of Uber and gradually adopted by business and management community. However, research on algorithmic management is still in its infancy: Most research on algorithmic management has focused narrowly on the gig economy, neglecting algorithmic management in standard employment settings. More importantly, research on algorithmic management has prospered in different research communities, including HCI, information systems, industrial relations, HRM and communication, but often lacks cross-disciplinary dialogue. Our workshop strives at bringing together researchers from different sub-fields of management who work on algorithmic management. After setting the stage with four expert presentations by leading academics from different fields of inquiry, participants will join breakout groups that mix disciplinary backgrounds. Then, the panel will include a summary by a discussant and a plenary group discussion that synthesizes the expert presentations and the breakout groups.
