Participation at the 81st Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management
News vom 07.04.2021
Three research projects of Professor Razinskas are accepted for presentation at the 81st Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM). The AOM is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars and its annual meeting is the leading conference in this field with more than 10,000 attendees usually gathering in North America to connect and explore ideas about management and organizational scholarship. In the continued face of the global pandemic, this year’s annual meeting will be held virtually from July 30th to August 3rd, 2021.
The first study titled “The Interactive Pattern Between Challenges and Hindrances at the Work-to-Nonwork Intersection,” which is joint work with Julia Backmann (University College Dublin) and Praveen Parboteeah (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater), investigates how challenges and hindrances at work may differentially interfere with employees’ private lives. Stefan Razinskas will present this research within the conference program of AOM’s Organizational Behavior Division. The second study titled “Too Much of a Good Thing? Resilience as a Predictor of Academic Commitment in (Un)Challenging Times” is joint work with Daniela Datzer (LMU Munich), Martin Hoegl (LMU Munich), and Yvette Hofmann (Bavarian State Institute for Higher Education Research and Planning, IHF). This research, which has been accepted by AOM’s Careers Division, explores the circumstances under which resilience is particularly useful for students from STEM disciplines in staying committed to their course of studies. The third study titled “The Antecedents of HR Strength in Times of Crisis: An Attributional Lens” is a global research project led by Karin Sanders, Phong Thanh Nguyen, and Gavin M. Schwarz from UNSW in Sydney, Alannah Rafferty from Griffith University in Queensland, and Dave Bouckenooghe from Brock University in St. Catharines. This research, which is co-authored by numerous scholars from universities around the world, investigates the crisis communication of universities during the COVID-19 pandemic and will be presented as part of the program of AOM’s Human Resources Division.
