Description


Humanistic Management Network:

Launch of the UK Chapter

The Humanistic Management Network is an international group of practitioners and academics who share a concern that organisations exist to benefit society. Humanistic management is based on three principles; 1) respect for the dignity of each person, 2) ethical organizational decisions and processes and 3) on-going dialogue with multiple stakeholders. The Network has members all over the world, and has established several country chapters… but until now, not in the UK!

Humanistic management is a driver for sustained business success aligned to societal needs and demands. Humanistic management helps reduce the cost of conflict or stress related absence and it propels employee engagement, customer loyalty and constructive stakeholder relationships. But humanistic management principles are not shared by everyone and are increasingly under threat.

As a network we link people together and demonstrate that others share our concerns. But a network can do so much more - share knowledge, research, good practices, lobbying politicians and jointly work on publications to name but a few. We can bring together and collaborate with other organisations and groupings, formal and informal, which share our values and commitments to make impact towards a more sustainable and more equitable planet.

Come to the launch of our UK Chapter and be part of this exciting new venture. Please join and contribute your ideas about what our network could do for you.

Conference Programme

The Conference programme is geared towards providing a balance of interactive elements and presentations to facilitate the exchange between participants and discussion with our highly esteemed speakers.

In the morning we will welcome two main speakers while the afternoon will be focused on gaining a better understanding of the opportunities we have for building a strong presence in the UK and assess jointly with participants how the UK Chapter can provide value to its members.

Please note that an informal dinner will take place after the event. Further information will be sent separately to registered participants. Time
