Prospects and Limits of Platform Control: Relating Algorithmic Management to Worker Agency
- Start: May 4, 2022
- End: May 6, 2022
Researchers investigating workers’ experiences of algorithmic control do not typically focus on the perspective of those who put these measures into place – often in part due to data limitations. Conversely, the organizational literature about companies’ choice of control technologies often neglects the perspective of the workers being controlled. This workshop wants to bring researchers from the two camps together to understand the dialectical relationship between the two sides and thus the stakes of algorithmic control for the future of work.
