    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    Hope you are doing well. Giulia and I are currently editing a Book titled on Designing and implementing Human Resources Management Systems in Family Businesses.

    The book intends to focus on HRM in family businesses aiming at clarifying what HRM topics are relevant in family firms given their distinctive features, what the role of HR choices in family firms is, and how they differ in these form of organizations. The goal of the book is to bring together chapters that consider all three main areas of HRM: theories, practices, and competencies. We expect the book to contribute to management practice and research in family firms in different ways.

    We invite submissions from various disciplines, such as organizational behavior, HRM, organization theory, management, strategy, family business or combinations thereof. Contributions can be conceptual (including critical literature reviews or "state-of-the-art" chapters) and/or empirical (qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods). Chapters, which adopt innovative approaches or challenge our understanding of how family firms cope with innovating HR approaches in family firms, are welcome. Action research chapters with an intervention focus are also welcomed. Review chapters, as well as empirical and theoretical chapters, will be considered.

    The attached call for chapters contains further details on what we envision.

    The electronic version of the call for chapters can be found at https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4426

    Chi accoglie un pensiero non riceve qualcosa, ma qualcuno.
    Passate la palla, a volte è l'unica cosa che potete fare:
    prenderla, toccarla e poi passarla.
    Le Poëte est semblable au prince des nuées
    Qui hante la tempête et se rit de l'archer;
    Exilé sur le sol au milieu des huées,
    Ses ailes de géant l'empechent de marcher.
