Alter-identity work via Social Media in Professional Service Contexts
In this research-in-progress paper, I show how individuals in a professional service firm passionately, and of their own volition, engage in work activities across multiple social media, that fall well outside of formal work requirements. I refer to the personas these workers create as “alter-identities” to signify that this form of identity work sits alongside formal work roles.
I will contribute new insights on the role of digital technologies, such as social media, in knowledge work contexts, and theorise the role of alter-identity performance as a way for organisations to innovate formal work models in a bottom-up, employee-driven way. Such practices might foster organisational responsiveness in rapidly changing environments.
