  • Track Description

    The increasing pervasiveness and ubiquity of information and communications technology (ICT), the rise of Web 2.0 applications and ICT-enabled social networking, the growing globalization of the information systems profession, and current concerns with sustainability are having profound influences on the human dimension of the information systems field. This suggests that topics related to human capital remain at the forefront of both research needs and practitioner concerns. The focus of this track is towards both fundamental and applied research issues related to understanding, developing and managing human capital and sustainable enterprises in the context of information systems. Our conceptualization of human capital, while broadly inclusive of the many conceptual and methodological approaches found in our intellectual community, remains concerned with human capital issues as they relate to both information systems professionals and those who are affected by the information systems professions. Papers are invited which address human capital topics at varying levels of analysis, from the individual to the organization to social policy levels. We particularly invite research papers that address the significant challenges facing the social and collective aspects of communities and organizations in the 21st century.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Information systems and collective action, social movements and computerization
    • Information systems career paths and life course
    • Human resource management of IS professionals
    • Implications of outsourcing and offshoring on human resource management
    • Labor market trends in information systems
    • Diversity in the information systems professions
    • Information systems skills development
    • Turnover and retention in the information systems professions
    • Impact of new ICTs on the information systems professions
    • The changing nature of information systems work
    • The impacts of information systems on work and organizing
    • Increasing the enrollment of students in information systems programs
    • Human capital and the knowledge society
    • Information systems and social sustainability
    • Human capital and social media
