Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated individuals, teams and organizations to change the ways to perform work. As the existing prevention and treatment protocols require continued social distancing, remote and flexible working, attention is shifting toward readiness
for a redefined future of work. The pace of technological advancement in workplace, the workforce, and organizational psychology research continues to accelerate. Leaders, irrespective of the firm size, have to pay greater attention to how changes affect workers and the workplace. Industrial and organizational psychology (I-O) provides scientifically rigorous and strategically focused solutions to work-related issues faced by individuals, teams, and organizations. The track (WOP) is looking forward to receiving empirical research focused at workplace, organizational psychology settings, such as workforce readiness, new normal (post-pandemic workplace), work-life balance interventions, work-family and family-work policies, remote and
flexible working, creating agile organizations, flexibility and innovation in the workplace, the changing nature of work, employee-employer relations, understanding sexual harassment, workforce diversity, inclusion, and equity, psychological safety, capital and contracts, autonomous learning, machine learning and AI, working with big data, workforce data analytics, data visualization and communication.
