Journal Special Issue with this title is currently under discussion with prestigious journals and hope to announce at the workshop. As IT has become ubiquitous and embedded in the work practices of most occupations, changes are taking place in the way work is designed, performed, coordinated and monitored. The nature of work as defined in the industrial age is now going through tremendous change. When the nature of work changes, there are broad and deep implications for the way we live and the way our society is operating. There are implications and consequences at the individual, organizational and social levels of analysis as well as across levels. The goal of this workshop is to build a research community interested in exploring this important topic.

Potential topical areas include (but are not limited to):

- Emerging new patterns of work

- Alternative work arrangements with IT

- Job Crafting with IT

- New IT-enabled motivational strategies, e.g., gamification of work

- Changing spatial and temporal dimensions of work

- Work Fragmentation

- Virtualization of work

- New forms of virtual teamwork

- Open collaboration

- e-Lancing

- IT and the labor market: Jobless growth

- Future professions

- Online participatory enterprises

- Changing leadership patterns

- Meaning of work and occupation

- Changing prestige of jobs with IT

- Work Life Harmony using IT
