La 4e de couverture indique : "This important book focuses on the role of human dignity, its protection and promotion in the context of organization and Humanistic Management. The recent phenomenon of humanism in management already has a rich body of literature and takes up many themes both theoretically, and from a practitioner perspective. Dignity and the Organization is the first book to explicitly deal with the topic of human dignity and management. The chapters address various aspects and problems from a humanistically-oriented perspective, taking up issues relevant for the contemporary management theorists and practitioners, and are concerned with organization, management and the social and cultural context. The book develops the notion of human dignity in conceptual and theoretical terms in its practical application, within the context of organizations."
Banking with integrity : the winners of the financial crisis?( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Banking with Integrity provides rich and in-depth case studies of banks which were doing well during the financial crisis of 2007-2010. While other banks went bankrupt, were nationalized, or struggled for survival some of the featured cases increased market share, attracted more customers and avoided home evictions of their clients. Banking with Integrity tells the stories of banks which were doing well during the financial crisis of 2007-2010. While other banks went bankrupt, were nationalized, or struggled for survival, some of our featured cases increased their market share, attracted more customers and avoided home evictions of their clients. By looking at the healthier population of financial service firms we explore what in their management approach made these banks 'immune' to the financial crisis. We find that these banks had stronger ties with the society around them contributing both to financial as well as human development. By staying close to clients and stakeholders, involving them in corporate governance mechanisms and exercising strict risk management practices, most of our cases avoided the negative consequences which other banks experienced. Adopting some of the lessons from these banks might serve as a 'vaccine' to avoid the impacts of any future financial turmoil
Humanistic marketing by Richard J Varey( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanistic Marketing is a response to the currently growing mega-trend call for rethinking marketing. The book organizes current thinking around the problems of marketing theory and practice as well as some possible solutions and ways forward: both for theory and for practice. This volume was initiated by the Humanistic Management Network to contribute knowledge and understanding to the emerging humanistic business and management movement that does not accept perpetual economic expansion as a sustainably viable means of meeting individual and collective needs in society and nature, and instead seeks balance in place of excess. 'Humanistic Marketing' recognises the harm that comes with the unfettered desire for more of more. The authors ask how can marketing's principles and practice be founded in humanistic values such as altruism, empathy, respect, trustworthiness, honesty, integrity, care, compassion, service, intelligence, beauty, justice, virtue? Furthermore, how can marketing help to protect human dignity and promote sustainable human (not consumer) well-being? -- from back cover

Humanistic perspectives on international business and management by Nathaniel Lupton( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is witnessing a number of severe crises including climate change, rise of international terrorism, social inequities, food shortage, material and spiritual poverty. Some argue that globalization has exacerbated these crises, while others argue globalization can be part of the solution. Globalization, understood as the cross-border integration of markets for products, labor, capital and knowledge, clearly is a force that has the potential to change the experience of human existence as well as its consequences for current and future ecosystems. These changes are driven by the increasing interconnectedness of financial systems, international trade, increased labor mobility, information and communications technology, and foreign direct investment. Some scholars argue that we have moved beyond the age of globalization towards an age of globality. In such an age, individual actions, local business practices and national politics all have global impact. It therefore matters on more than one level about how we think about business in a global community. In Humanistic Perspectives on International Business and Management, the contributing authors provide space to global perspectives on how we can rethink and reposition international business and management practice to be a part of the solution to our global problems. These contributions provide impetus for further research, practice and pedagogy development"--
Humanistic management : protecting dignity and promoting well-being by Michael Pirson( Book )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a world facing multiple crises, our foundational institutions are failing to offer effective solutions. Drawing on the emerging consilience of knowledge, Michael Pirson debunks the fundamental yet outdated assumptions of human nature that guide twentieth-century management theory and practice - as captured in the 'economistic' paradigm - and instead provides an urgently needed conceptual and practical 'humanistic' framework, based on the protection of human dignity and the promotion of well-being. By outlining the science-based pillars of this innovative system, Pirson provides a twenty first-century model for the responsible twenty first-century leader seeking sustainable ways to organize in a world of crisis. Highlighting relevant applications for research, practice, teaching and policy, this book is ideal for graduate students and professionals seeking to develop their understanding of responsible business, business ethics and corporate responsibility."--Publisher's description
