Organizations have embraced Web 2.0 technologies, leading to the emergence
of ‘Enterprise 2.0’. Workers at successful organizations are increasingly
mobile, social, and collaborative. Consequently, the field of social
computing is increasingly interested in introducing and studying the tools,
practices and methodologies that engender the characteristics of such a
workforce. As new social computing technologies continue to be embraced and
thereby impact the manner in which work is accomplished in these
organizations, it is important to discuss their implications on workforce
management topics such as recruiting, retention, attrition, training,
assessment, employee engagement and productivity. This workshop will
provide a forum where designers, practitioners, as well as social science
and computer science researchers can: 1) introduce new tools or methods
that address workforce management issues, 2) advance our understanding of
workforce issues through qualitative and quantitative empirical studies,
and 3) discuss the impact and opportunities recent trends such as social,
mobile, and crowdsourcing have on the workforce.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners to explore, discuss, and understand challenges and new
opportunities that arise from an emerging Social Workforce. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Social listening technologies
- Data privacy and protecting employee information
- Novel applications and technologies for workforce management
- Line of business workforce challenges and solutions, e.g. sales enablement
- Voice of the employee
- Ethics of crowdsourcing
- Critical studies of workforce related issues
- Cross cultural studies of the workforce
- Workforce analytics (social analytics, predictive analytics, social
network analysis)
- Industry-specific (e.g. pharmaceuticals, retail, food & beverages)
workforce solutions and case studies
- Novel social learning and knowledge management approaches
- The role of HR in workforce management and optimization
- Novel work(place) models
- Novel approaches for talent management (recruiting, assessment, retention)
- Crowdfunding
