Information technology has had a profound effect on almost every aspect of our lives including the way we purchase products, communicate with others, receive health care services, and deliver education and training. It has also had a major impact on organisational behaviour, and it has transformed the way that we communicate, interact, and collaborate in organisations. The pandemic, for example, has highlighted the need for new management approaches characterised by empathy, determination, flexibility, and a more humane face that understands the needs of employees. Inclusive organisational behaviour, consequently, can be the key for attenuating the impact of COVID-19 on individuals’ subjective wellbeing, as employees working from everywhere and adhering to the social and physical distancing measures often experience feelings of decreased inclusion and belonginess.
Despite this increased use of technology in the field of OB, relatively little research has examined the establishment and promotion of inclusive organisational behaviour in this world. Consequently, practitioners are implementing these new systems without the benefit of research. Thus, the primary purpose of this webinar is to discuss research on inclusive organisational behaviour in the digitalised world where employees work from everywhere, and examine the challenges associated with cyber-deviance in organisations. The research papers in this SI should be extremely beneficial for OB researchers and practitioners who are employing these new digitalized organisational approaches.
