    Call for Papers


    We are pleased to announce the call for papers for this EAWOP Small Group Meeting.

    According to the European Political Strategy Centre (2016), one of the most relevant trends and transformations that work is undergoing, both in Europe and worldwide, is the breaking down of jobs into projects that "assemble physical or virtual teams, across borders or time-zones" (p. 2). This new paradigm allows organizations to maximize time zone differences (for instance, in 24/7 customer service availability), to cut down travel and moving costs, and to take advantage of a larger pool of talents across the globe. These new arrangements also have stark implications for other domains, like Human Resource Management and teamwork. This SGM is aimed at discussing the specific implications of working virtually (namely in multiple projects simultaneously) for team effectiveness, both in what tangible outputs or products, and influences on team members (collective and individualistic) are considered.

    Submissions to the Small Group Meeting may include but are not limited to:

    • Specificities of virtuality for teamwork
    • Technology-mediated interaction
    • Multiple team membership
    • Global teams/Geographically dispersed teams
