BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y., July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of Management (AOM), the largest global association devoted to management and organization research, today announced the details of its 83rd Annual Meeting.

The meeting will be held in-person with sessions in Boston, MA, spanning 4-8 August 2023. The inaugural Annual Meeting Opening Reception will be held Friday evening with early access to exhibits and opportunities to meet with AOM's leaders both past and present.

The conference theme, "Putting the Worker Front and Center", will highlight dramatic shifts in the workplace from the retirement of the baby boom generation, widening income inequalities, worker-employer power dynamics, post-pandemic realities and most recently, the Great Resignation.  

Top global management and organization scholars will evaluate expertise, experience, and research-based insights across 2,200+ sessions to discuss today's most important issues impacting the workplace and organizations, notably the increasingly severe talent shortages, intensified labor activism (e.g., "anti-work" movement), pent-up frustration among workers over "toxic" work environments and dangerous working conditions, sustainability of all things other than employees, and much more.

"The post-pandemic world has witnessed a dramatic change in workplace power dynamics," said Peter Bamberger, AOM Vice President and Program Chair from Tel Aviv University. "Pent-up frustration, workplace safety concerns, and low wages have led employees to reevaluate their priorities and expectations. In this moment in history, organizations are beginning to ask what it is that employees want and how they can better engage them. As the premier organization for management research, we have an important role to play in answering those questions. That's what inspired me to suggest this year's theme."
