Web site

Much of the discussion around sustainability has focused only on the environmental aspect. In this conference we aim to extend the discussion to include other aspects of sustainability, especially in the context of future working life, its organizing, managing and leadership. Working life is facing significant social, technological, cultural, economic and environmental changes. We want to explore the meaning of these changes and their challenges to private and other organizations, their management and leadership.

We invite contributions from academics, policymakers and practitioners. We are interested in contributions on topics which are on the rise in changing working life. The range of possible topics includes, but is not limited to, the following themes from the perspective of working life:

Workforce diversity, intersectionality, inclusion and equality

24/7 demands, work-life/family integration, work wellbeing and quality of life

Development of human and social capital

Organizational change, renewal and culture

Labor and human rights concerns

Responsibility/ethics in leadership and HRM

Good governance

Human and social aspects of accounting

Social/organizational innovation and social enterprise

Ethical challenges of digitalization/social media

Stakeholder engagement and value creation

(E-)learning/teaching and business ethics

Climate change and other environmental challenges


The language of the conference is English.
