  • Ageing and its determinants: potentialities and challenges for
           employment in Southern Europe
    • Authors: Roberto Impicciatore, Renata Semenza
      Pages: 121 - 142
      Abstract: The ageing process, mainly due to a persistent low fertility, has a strong impact on the labour market. The shrinking labour force and the increase of dependent old-age population will become particularly intense in the next two decades especially in Southern European countries. The aim of this paper is twofold. On one hand, it highlights the population dynamics in the Southern European context and what is reasonable to expect in the next decades. On the other hand, it attempts to contribute to a better understanding of how demographic changes and labour market dynamics are mutually interrelated. Alongside factors of concern, the paper also discusses elements of optimism for the future. Mature workers and the elderly are changing their characteristics rapidly and in the coming decades they will have higher levels of education and better health conditions, with a positive impact on their wellbeing and work productivity.

  • All the work's a stage: exploring the perceived theatricality of
           organisational working life
    • Authors: Nigel Hunt, Florie Rosalie Pronk
      Pages: 143 - 158
      Abstract: Much is known about roles at work. Following role theory, concepts such as role conflict, role overload and role ambiguity are crucial constructs, but where a dramaturgical metaphor is considered meaningful across disciplines including sociology and social psychology, little attention has been paid to theatricality within organisational psychology. This study aims to consider whether and how role theory may be extended by the inclusion of a dramaturgical metaphor at work. How would employees consider their work roles, supposing that work were a stage? Semi-structured interviews and diaries from a sample of 13 employees suggest that the application of a dramaturgical metaphor at work might well equip employees with a powerful work ethic, work repertoire and sense-making device, and therefore deserves further exploration.

  • Framing the process of innovating: contested meanings at the nexus of
    • Authors: Nigel Hunt, Florie Rosalie Pronk
      Pages: 159 - 171
      Abstract: The literature in innovation recognises the tensions and trade-offs that are inherent in the process of innovation. Since innovations primarily occur at cross-disciplinary boundaries, paradoxically these boundaries are also a source of tensions in the process of cross-disciplinary collaboration during the process of innovation. While boundary objects play a crucial role to serve as bridges, we have very limited understanding on how and why boundary objects function as a source of conflict and misunderstandings. In this paper, we try to unpack the potentially conflictual nature of boundary objects by illustrating that boundary objects enable the individuals to realise their frame of analyses, which may compete with another's. We examine a case study of a workplace redesign at a large private university in the Mid-West USA, and examine how these different stakeholders attach different meanings, and therefore contribute to the tensions of the new workplace design. Findings offer implications for governing the innovation process.

  • Development and validation of the inspirational leaders survey
    • Authors: John Pates, Yasuhiro Kotera, David Clancy
      Pages: 172 - 192
      Abstract: The inspirational leaders survey (ILS) was developed to identify the behaviours and characteristics of inspirational leaders. The ILS aims to help businesses recruit inspirational leaders. Our literature review identified 75 inspiring behaviours. The items were examined through the exploratory factor analysis of 212 workers; and a confirmatory factor analysis of 248 workers in various industries. Two factors with nine items emerged as the best approximation of the population covariance matrix of the three models tested from the results. The factors were called 'individual behaviours (five items: desire to achieve success, determined to achieve goals, passionate about work, committed to achieve success, and hardworking)' and 'relationship behaviours (four items: ability to instil confidence in people, inspire others, offer hope to others, and offer stability and direction to others)'. The ILS can be used, especially by human resources in organisations, to identify and recruit inspirational leaders into their workforce.

  • Flight attendant's knowledge sharing, innovative work behaviour, and
           new service development
    • Authors: Bilal Afsar, Umar Safdar, Mir Dost, Zeeshan Ali
      Pages: 193 - 215
      Abstract: New service development is an important topic for decision-makers in service firms, since continuous innovation is expected to pay off. We argue that flight attendants' knowledge sharing and innovative behaviours can enhance new service development performance. In addition, flight attendants' perceived behavioural control can enhance their knowledge sharing and innovative behaviours. Furthermore, we argue that organisational support and attitudes towards sharing knowledge also increase flight attendants' knowledge sharing and innovative behaviours. Data were collected from 328 flight attendants representing eight airline companies at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. The results showed that organisational support and positive attitude to sharing affected knowledge sharing and innovative work behaviour, whereas perceived behavioural control has been found to affect only knowledge sharing behaviour. In addition, flight attendant's knowledge sharing had a positive effect on innovative work behaviour and new service development.

  • Studying the doing and undoing of gender in the organisation: promises
           and challenges
    • Authors: Bilal Afsar, Umar Safdar, Mir Dost, Zeeshan Ali
      Pages: 216 - 230
      Abstract: To further advance the understanding of how gender norms are performed in practice within organisations, this article reviews the main conceptualisations of 'practice' and of 'gender-as-practice' in the organisational literature. Drawing from recent work, it proceeds to explore the potential of using a gender-as-practice approach to observe how gender might be undone via microemancipation and resistance. Finally, it addresses some methodological implications that are raised by the adoption of such an approach, among which remains the difficulty of articulating practices and the challenge of operationalising 'doing gender'.
      Keywords: doing gender; undoing gender; practice theory; gender-as-practice; organisations

  • Social innovation as practice: exploring the entanglement of political
           and managerial logics
    • Authors: Alexandra Gaidos, Florence Palpacuer, Nicolas Balas
      Pages: 231 - 245
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present the conceptual considerations at the basis of a PhD research aiming at making sense of the concept of social innovation in the way it is put into practice through incubators and social enterprises. It builds notably on the feedback obtained at the 4th meeting on Critical Management Studies in Louvain-la-Neuve where a first version of this paper has been presented. Social innovation (SI) as a concept has received increasing attention from scholars during the last two decades. Nevertheless, it is now confronted with the apparition of a diversity of definitions that show the difficulty of grasping: 1) the 'social' in SI; 2) the more practical forms that SI can take. In front of this ambiguity, the current research made the choice of the Grounded Theory as the appropriate approach in understanding the reality of SI as it is implemented through a case study of dedicated incubators and socially innovative enterprises.
