About this book

This book elaborates on the combined challenges regarding intrapreneurship, sustainability of human resources management (HRM) and digital transformation faced by today’s organizations. Representing the first such attempt in current management literature, it explores the sustainable HRM approach, which focuses on connecting internal and external factors so as to achieve positive outcomes not only for the respective organization but also for the society, economy, and environment. It also discusses cases related to HRM’s role in establishing a corporate sustainability culture, while also working to promote employee engagement, satisfaction, performance and well-being. In closing, the book discusses the new opportunities provided by digitalization and connectivity in the field of intellectual capital, which make employees the central focus of the organization in order to create sustainable competitive advantages.
