OB Division’s All Year Round PDW: Burnout and Work-Life Balance

When:  Jun 8, 2022 from 12:00 to 14:15 (AT)
Associated with  Organizational Behavior (OB)

: Learning to manage work and life outside of work continues to be one of the largest challenges for academics. Couple this recurrent struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic and it is easy to understand why we are currently facing a well-being crisis. In this PDW, we invite you to hear from leading scholars in the field about their own personal experiences of burnout and work-life balance as well as how they have navigated this tension in their own lives. Throughout the session, we will provide a safe space to connect with others, receive support, and workshop a personal game plan to manage these tensions and develop healthier strategies that focus on both preventing and managing burnout. Participants in this virtual PDW will also be invited to an in-person social at AOM 2022 in Seattle to reconnect with the speakers, panelists, and other attendees and reflect on their success in implementing their “academic well-being game plan.”
