Positive Organizational Scholarship: Between Tradition and Innovation
 Guest editor(s): Equipe éditoriale Ripco
This special issue is devoted to positive organizational behavior scholarship (POS). The proposed papers can be situated at the different traditional levels of analysis of the field of organizational behavior: individuals, groups, organizations, as well as in the links within and between these different levels. The submission of theoretical and empirical papers is acceptable. Given the diverse nature of OB research, both quantitative and qualitative work is welcomed. In this respect, the following research questions are of interest to management sciences: What are the boundaries of the « positive » organizational behavior scholarship? What are the existing differences and overlap between OB’s traditional concepts and those who appear more innovative? How should we measure novel concepts such as positive deviance, organizational energy, sustainable value, etc.? What are universally positive phenomena? Which phenomena are independent from cultural and organizational contexts? How could a positive state emerge from negative phenomena? More generally, what are the antecedents and mechanisms during which positive states develop? What are the respective roles of personality and individual traits and the organization in the development of positive phenomena? What are the personal and organizational consequences of positive states? What role(s) can staff representative bodies in general and trade unionism in particular play in developing and sustaining positive attitudes and behaviors? Which HRM approach is best suited for achieving which positive state(s)? Which training practices transform individuals’ attitudes and influence positive behaviors? How to transform the innovative concepts of this field into management and consulting practices?

Spaces and Organisation Behaviour: new organisations, new theorisations
 Guest editor(s): Olivier, Germain ; Judith, Igelsböck ; Daniel, Melo Ribeiro ; Jean-Luc, Moriceau
Studies on the relationships between spaces and organisational behaviour have recently become richer, considering, for example, materiality, identity, aesthetics, control, reciprocal constitution – up to what is called a turn towards spatiality. However, today, on the one hand, spaces, places and borders are being drastically redefined (e.g. with flex-office, aesthetisation, third places, migrations, multiple reterritorialisations) and on the other hand, the theorisations of organisational space are convening new authors and new concepts (e.g. spacing, throwntogetherness, dispositif, geophilosophy...). In this special issue we propose to follow Beyes & Holt's (2020) invitation to take space seriously and to think spatially: to recognise that all organisations and actors are emplaced or desire a place, that innumerable boundaries are formed and contested, that territories are traversed by atmospheres and affects; and to welcome research and reflections inspired by and addressing this new spatial condition of organisations. Hence this issue calls for all forms of contributions that seek to better understand the links between new spatial organisations and organisational behaviour and to reflect on the new issues, imaginaries, devices, boundaries, subjectivities and controls that are taking shape and reforming the life of and in organisations.

Special issue : Vol. XXVIII, Issue CFP_SI_TELETRAVAIL (2022)
STATUS : In progress
From telework to hybridity: a new way of thinking about our organizations?
 Guest editor(s): Emmanuel, Abord de Chatillon ; Denis, Chênevert ; Nathalie, Delobbe ; David, Giauque ; Emilie, Vayre
All around the world, the Covid-19 health crisis has forced companies to reorganize work abruptly, quickly and deeply, and telework has become a systematic work modality for many employees in a few days. This increase in telework is likely to continue. Indeed, if telework is a suitable answer to confinement and crisis situations, it also answers other demands of our society, such as the will to reduce real estate costs for companies, the ecological and economical wish to reduce travels, or the expectations of employees in terms of life balance and autonomy. This evolution is underway, but it is not without profoundly changing the way we work, both individually and collectively. This special issue aims at answering the different empirical and theoretical questions that arise around the capacity of organizations to function in a fluid and efficient way, as well as around the question of the efficiency of work collectives or that of a management of hybridity. The first axis is to study the impact of this profound change in terms of health at work, articulation between personal and professional life, maintaining the link to the organization, team functioning and performance and productivity at work. A second axis focuses on the exercise of leadership and management practices adapted to remote work, often associated with management by objectives, but which it is essential to characterize more finely. Finally, a third axis aims at better understanding how telework activity is carried out.

Special issue : Vol. XXIX, Issue CPF_SI_INCLUSION (2022)
STATUS : In progress
The inclusive Organization
 Guest editor(s): Elise, Bonneveux ; Séverine, Ventolini
Inclusion has become a central issue for organizations in terms of CSR, employer image and management (Kele et al., 2022). In this special issue, we will value all types of theoretical or empirical contributions, quantitative, qualitative or both. Several levels of analysis, micro-, meso- and macro-organizational (Adamson et al, 2021) can be proposed, the goal being to have a global but also fine understanding of the inclusive organization. First of all, contributions around the conditions that foster a sense of inclusion are expected. A second type of contribution is expected in a comparison of the concept of inclusion and organizational behaviors as well as the social performance of organizations. The contributions can also, to some extent, be articulated around the power dynamics at play around the inclusive organization. Through this special issue, we hope to promote research that evokes the discourse and practices of inclusion, but also to show how inclusive politics takes shape within organizational contexts and to what extent the integration of different singularities is feasible. We hope that this special issue will help answer many of the questions listed below: 1. How has the shift from diversity management to inclusion changed organizational perceptions, behaviors and practices? 2. How is the "all-inclusive" discourse relevant and what reality(s) does it represent? 3. What form(s) do the discourses and practices of inclusion take in different organizational, sectoral and cultural contexts? 4. How does the concept of inclusion question the notion of power within organizations? 5. How does inclusion manifest itself in different contexts for different singularities? 6. What are the paradoxes of inclusion? What are the contours of the exclusion/inclusion equation?
