Dear Friends and Colleagues,
we are editing a Book titled on Designing and implementing Human Resources Management Systems in Family Businesses, aiming at clarifying what HRM topics are relevant in family firms, what the role of HR choices in family firms is, and how they differ in these forms of organizations.
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.
The attached call for chapters contains further details on what we envision.
The web version of the call can be found at https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4426
