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.
