Annual Meeting of the Southern Management Association

Andrew Loignon, George Banks, and Jane Thomas

Jim Rebar 0 1507 Article rating: 5.0

The Annual Meeting of the Southern Management Association has begun accepting submissions until April 5th, 2019. 
As this year’s track chairs, we would like to personally invite you to submit a paper, symposium, and/or a Professional Development Institute (PDI) proposal for consideration as part of this year’s conference. We imagine that the members of SIOP would be particularly interested in submitting to either the Organizational Behavior track or the joint Human Resource Management/Research Methods track. 

We hope you’ll consider contributing to this year’s conference program, which would benefit tremendously from the shared expertise of the members of SIOP!

NSF encourages:

  • every social scientist,
  • every behavioral scientist,
  • every member of an organization who is willing to collaborate with social or behavioral scientists, and
  • every scholar who is looking for new opportunities to advance science in ways that best serve the public

to think “big”.

Call for Papers

Special Issue of Human Resource Management Journal - The role of HRM in refugee workforce integration - Advancing theory and enhancing practice

The number of refugees worldwide is increasing dramatically. A recent UNHCR report estimates that at the end of 2016 the world refugee population was over 22.5 million (UNHCR, 2017). While the refugee population can help developed countries reverse their negative demographic trends and bring economic and social benefit to host countries, research suggests that many refugees end up underemployed (Krahn et al., 2000) or dependent on public assistance (Hansen & Lofstrom, 2003), thus failing to fully integrate into the host society (Feeney, 2000).
