    This proposed PDW is the continuation of a joint effort to develop and grow a community of scholars with the common research interest of intersection of work and volunteering.This research goes beyond the traditional employee relationship to include additional stakeholder relationships such as the community, volunteer beneficiaries, and the third sector.Building on the successes of multiple past caucuses and symposia organized by the same group, this workshop will bring together scholars interested in developing research projects in an interactive, supportive and interdisciplinary environment. The PDW is aimed at attracting scholars from various contributing disciplines, including Organizational Behavior, Human Resources, Public and Nonprofit Management, and Social Issues in Management. Research topics include, among others, corporate volunteering programs, volunteer management, and individual strategies for managing the intersection of work and volunteering. Our objectives are: (1) bringing together the inter-divisional research community focusing on work and volunteering; (2) supporting and developing ideas and manuscripts through feedback and discussions; (3) discussing ways forward and visions for the research community and the literature to which we contribute. Sections of the workshop will include an overview of the field of research, round-table discussions of pre-submitted papers and research ideas as well as a plenary discussion. 




    We welcome working papers and extended abstracts (min. 1,500 words for abstracts) on the above topics, to be submitted to Bethania Antunes (b.antunes@surrey.ac.uk) by the deadline June 20, 2022. We will accept a maximum of 20 working papers/extended abstracts based on research relevance and quality.  


    Pre-registration is required for this session. The deadline to register online is June 20, 2022. Please contact the workshop organizers b.antunes@surrey.ac.uk or j.booth@lse.ac.uk for further information and to obtain the approval code.
