Digital technology is disrupting the workplace by opening a new frontier of work experiences, redefining how we work and blurring the lines between work and life. The pace and magnitude of the current digital transformation, and its effects on people and organizations, is unprecedented.

This conference brings together expert research and business thought leaders, and emerging scholars to explore the impact of this digital transformation on work and life examining areas such as:

  • Employee well-being at work and home
  • Structuring work (e.g. hybrid, remote, global)
  • Processing information to make decisions in virtual and/or volatile, complex, uncertain, and ambiguous environments and personal/professional boundries
  • Ethical and equality implications of digital technology
  • How organizations and people learn and manage these changes

Researchers will share insights on optimizing work cultures for positive employee and organizational effectiveness, while industry leaders will share strategies and have opportunities for dialogue for managing a distributed, diverse workforce.

Participants will have to opportunity to present and get feedback on research and practice, and gain a comprehensive understanding of the ever-evolving workplace in the digital age.   A special issue of a journal, and other publications are planned.
