Abstract

This book is open access under a CC-BY license.
Moral dilemmas are a pervasive feature of working life. Moral Reasoning at Work offers a fresh perspective on how to live with them. How do we cope with situations where no matter what we decide to do, something will be wrong? How do we live with the moral dissonance between what we are tempted to do and what is in line with our moral convictions? What can organizations do to establish a foundation for responsible decision-making and conduct? This book combines research streams from ethics and moral psychology using extensive experience of sessions of moral reasoning with leaders and employees in organizations. It argues that there is a need to go beyond compliance and traditional approaches to ethics in order to prepare decision-makers for moral dilemmas. Organizations can do that by encouraging people to become actively and regularly involved in moral reasoning at work.

Abstract

"Caritas, which is inherent in health care, is also not a countercategory to economy, i.e. to economic activity, just as the management of social responsibility is not limited to the moderation (apparently) opposing interests of patients, employees and providers. On the contrary: In the hospital - as in any other business organization - social responsibility must be defined as a strategic task to strengthen competitiveness and manage changes and to be implemented permanently in terms of personnel and institutions. - How can the actors in a hospital assume and implement social responsibility and at the same time ensure sustainable performance? - Who are the different stakeholders and which positions and aspects have to be taken into account in which business decisions? - What are the measures for socially responsible action and thus the target values ​​and fields of action of the responsible persons? - What are the personnel and institutional requirements for managing social responsibility? These questions are presented in an implementation-oriented manner and supplemented by practical examples for the development and implementation of a new management of social responsibility."

Abstract

Nahezu alle (evangelischen) Großkirchen in Deutschland haben nach der Jahrtausendwende flächendeckend Mitarbeiter- oder Personalentwicklungsgespräche eingeführt. In der Hannoverschen Landeskirche wurde deren Einführung als „Jahresgespräche“ besonders breit diskutiert. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht diese Diskussionen als Ausdruck eines veränderten Selbstverständnisses der gesamten Leitungspraxis der evangelischen Kirchen und stellt sie in den Kontext der Debatten zur kirchlichen „Organisationsreform“, die seit den 1990er Jahren die Praxis und Theorie der Kirche beschäftigen. Anhand der Visitation wird ein Modell entwickelt, das kirchliches Leitungshandeln und die damit verbundenen Konflikte und Spannungsfelder in drei Grunddimensionen beschreibt und differenziert. In Anwendung auf die Jahresgespräche werden damit Konfliktstrukturen und Problemfelder sichtbar gemacht. Auf diese Weise werden Personalentwicklung und Personalführung der Kirchen einer tiefergehenden praktisch-theologischen Reflexion unterzogen.

Abstract

This open access book discusses transnational trade union cooperation in Europe – its forms, focuses, conditions, and obstacles. It provides an overview of existing trade union cooperation and includes detailed analyses of two specific questions: the debates on statutory minimum wages and the Posting of Workers Directive. Drawing on empirical research, the authors take a comparative approach, considering national industrial relations regimes as well as individual sectors. With the ongoing processes of integration in Europe, it has become increasingly important for unions to cooperate with regard to employers and EU institutions. The authors illustrate the interconnections between national and European industrial relations, and explore the process of European integration in labour markets. Illustrating the potential for and difficulties involved in deepening trade union cooperation across Europe, this work is a vital read for trade unionists, researchers and students interested in European trade unionism and labour markets.

Abstract

This open access book addresses the current debate on extended working life policy by considering the influence of gender and health on the experiences of older workers. Bringing together an international team of scholars, it tackles issues as gender, health status and job/ occupational characteristics that structure the capacity and outcomes associated with working longer. The volume starts with an overview of the empirical and policy literature; continues with a discussion of the relevant theoretical perspectives; includes a section on available data and indicators; followed by 25 very concise and unique country reports that highlight the main extended working life (EWL) research findings and policy trajectories at the national level. It identifies future directions for research and addresses issues associated with effective policy-making. This volume fills an important gap in the knowledge of the consequences of EWL and it will be an invaluable source for both researchers and policy makers.

Abstract

The concept of sustainability is important for companies both in the case of SMEs and worldwide multinational companies. Some key factors to help a company achieve its sustainability objectives are based on human resource management. Sustainable human resource management is a typical cross-functional task that becomes increasingly important at the strategic level of a company. Industry 4.0 technologies, Internet of Things, and competitive demands, as signs of globalization, have led to significant changes across the organizational structures and human resource strategies of companies. The increasing importance of sophisticated human resource strategies in the life of companies and the intention to find optimal design and operation strategies for sustainable human resource management were a motivation for launching this book. This book offers a selection of papers which explain the impact of smart human resource management on economy. Authors from 14 countries published working examples and case studies resulting from their research in this field. The aim of this book is to help students at the level of BSc, MSc, and PhD level, as well as managers and researchers, to understand and appreciate the concept, design, and implementation of sustainable human resource management solutions.
