How do we, as management scholars and practitioners, shape caring cultures and strategies in organizations? How do we create courageous organizations, managers, and employees that understand the value and imperative of caring for their people as well as for profits? How do we put humans back into the economic equation? As we become a global knowledge/service society, people are well proclaimed as our most important resource. With their hearts and minds, knowledge and experience, people create an organizations' culture and its' results with their work, loyalty, and values. People thrive in caring environments. Yet people have often been sacrificed in their organization's quest for survival in the recent recession. How do organizations recover and then grow, while managing disheartened employees and facing a global talent shortage? We believe that to move forward, we who value organizational systems and cultures, people and values, must collaboratively work for societal and organizational cultural transformation. We need to care, and to enliven care in our work. The goal for this PDW is to create an exciting conversation between academics and practitioners gathered from many disciplines and Academy divisions/interest groups who want to design real-world projects that move Caring Economics from concept to reality. The co-creation process utilizes Action Research methods to bridge research with experience in hands-on, practice-oriented, practice-grounded roundtables, where ideas will be organically nurtured, collaboratively developed, and/or critiqued. Participants are invited to propose their own project (in embryo or development stage) or join one of those being sponsored by others.
