Chapter name: Humanistic Management Network Swiss Chapter

Contact name: Ernst von Kimakowitz

Background information: In 2007 the humanistic management movement was institutionalized by founding a charitable Swiss association in the Canton of St. Gallen in eastern Switzerland, beautifully nestled between lake Constance and the Alps.

The Swiss Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network works on the basis that a fundamental paradigm shift is needed in the way we define the purpose of business and its role in society. To this end the Swiss Chapter promotes the approach to humanistic management developed by the Humanistic Management Center that is based on the three pillars of 1) Respect for human dignity 2) Integration of ethical considerations in management decisions and 3) Engagement with stakeholders

More on this approach can be found under http://www.humanisticmanagement.org.

Chapter activities: The Swiss Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network is undertaking three types of activities.

· Supporting the humanistic management movement globally by empowering and facilitating chapter activities worldwide

· Organizing and participating in events that aim to promote the ideas of humanistic management

· Providing input on further developing the foundations of humanistic management

The Swiss Chapter runs and channels its own activities mainly through the Humanistic Management Center (www.humanisticmanagement.org), an independent think–tank, learning institution and advisory firm in the corporate responsibility and business ethics arena.

No life will be left untouched by the digital revolution which brings both, great opportunities as well as risks and both, the opportunities as well as the risks are frequently connected to questions of sustainability and the desirability of consequences technology brings to humanity.

The theme of the 2018 Sixth Annual Humanistic Management Conference therefore is Technology, Sustainability, Humanity and where better to discuss this topic than in one of the world's prominent tech hubs, Bengaluru, India on the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, one of the most impactful voices of a life in dignity for all.

The aim of this conference is to enhance our understanding of the relationship between technology and Humanistic Management and provide a platform for exchange to our highly esteemed speakers, guests and conference delegates.

To this end we have built an interactive programme spanning two days to offer you keynotes, workshops, paper sessions, panels, ample networking opportunities and the launch of the Humanistic Management Network India Chapter.

We are most grateful to our hosts and sponsors CMR University in Bengaluru, India and the Weltethos Institute at the University of Tübingen, Germany for their generous support.

Come join us – together we make impact towards a more sustainable and more equitable planet.

The 5th Annual Humanistic Management Conference 

A World Ethos for Global Business?
Cosmopolitan Responsibilities of Management

05 - 06 October 2017
Weltethos-Institut, University of Tuebingen

We have a world economy but no world government; nor can we expect, at least in the foreseeable future, a system of decentralized global governance with sufficient sanctioning powers to enforce legal mandates for business worldwide. For this reason alone, the ethical dimension of business cannot be entrusted solely to the law. Globalized markets would seem to require an underlying ‘ethos’, present to some degree the world over: a common spirit of legitimate, just, and fair business practice substantiated by shared experience. As managers and economic decision-makers, however, are increasingly operating within multi-cultural settings with divergent social customs and conventions, no ‘one size fits all’ approach will do. While on the one hand the growing need for transnational cooperation accentuates the call for a shared ‘world ethos’ for the global business community, on the other hand any proposal in that direction must make room for the need for the diversity and divergence of culture and civilization. At the fifth annual Humanistic Management Conference, to be held at the University of Tuebingen’s Weltethos-Institut, we aim to address this dual need by investigating from various cultural perspectives: 1) how a world ethos for global business  could be variously articulated and promoted (‘theory’); 2)  the extent to which such an ethos is already present in contemporary globalized business (‘practice’); and 3) what civil society around the world can do to support the efforts of  (esp. multinational) corporations in this direction (‚policy’).
