  1. Crossing Borders in Business and Economics Classrooms.Marta Fondo & Schiro Withanachchi - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:110-118.
    The emerging changes in global societies challenge businesses as teams work across borders. Consequently, higher education promotes student interaction from diverse cultural backgrounds using technological tools without restricting time, cost, motivation or mobility. In this regard, telecollaboration engages students in a learning process that develops 21st century skills with peers from diverse language, socio-cultural, and educational backgrounds. This article presents a telecollaboration project designed and implemented by Queens College, City University of New York, and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, an online (...)

    Equity Sensitivity and Stakeholder Behaviour.Sefa Hayibor - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:98-109.
    Though possible influences of a stakeholder’s fairness or equity perceptions on its inclination to impose sanctions upon a firm or, conversely, to support it, have received a modicum of attention from researchers in stakeholder theory, the limited work in this area of inquiry assumes that stakeholders are homogeneous in their sensitivity to unfairness or inequity in the firm-stakeholder relationship, though research on equity sensitivity suggests that this assumption likely will not hold. Based on work in stakeholder theory, equity theory, and (...)

    Engaging with the Natural Environment.Johanna Kujala, Anna Heikkinen, Jere Nieminen, Ari Jokinen & Riikka Tapaninaho - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:73-81.
    The purpose of this paper is to shed light on the debate on how nature can be understood as a stakeholder and to develop the idea of nature-inclusive stakeholder engagement. While acknowledging the arguments against the stakeholder status of nature, we build on a growing stream of literature that argues that nature should and can have stakeholder status. To move beyond the arguments for and against the stakeholder status of nature, we suggest the idea of nature-inclusive stakeholder engagement that builds (...)

  4. Exploring Personal Values and Job Attribute Salience Among Job Seekers.Yohann Mauger, David M. Wasieleski & Sefa Hayibor - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:50-58.
    The person-organization fit literature suggests that job seekers are attracted to organizations that match their personal values; but, to date, little is known about how individuals’ personal values might affect their preferences for particular job attributes when seeking a job. In this paper, using data from 351 job seekers at several employment agencies in Haute-Normandie, France, we examine possible connections between certain personal values and job attribute preferences among job seekers.

  5. The Pyrrhic Victory of Benefit Corporations.Ronald M. Roman & Ryan Cabinte - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:41-49.
    Benefit corporations are a new corporate form with legal requirements to account for the interests of social or environmental stakeholders. In this paper we discuss the perceived advantages of benefit corporations and critically review the need for this new corporate form. We suggest traditional C-corporations can legally engage in the activities promoted by adherents of benefit corporations and also present evidence of a potential harm arising from benefit corporations’ existence. Analysis of an original survey of over 500 respondents reveals knowledge (...)

    Marginalized Communities and Social Enterprises.Meike Siegner, Rajat Panwar & Robert Kozak - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:59-65.
    Thus far, the academic focus has been limited to understand how hybrid organizations balance goal plurality. However, the question how hybrids engage local communities in this process and the potential challenges involved has remained unaddressed. Relying on an inductive multiple case study of six Canadian community forest enterprises, we describe dilemmas that arise between community engagement and CFEs’ other goals that form their social mission, as well as a distinct set of compromise tactics to address them. We further identify a (...)

  7. Crossing the Shareholder-First Border.William P. Smith & Barrie E. Litzky - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:66-72.
    This project investigates critical issues and events related to Trek Therapeutics experience as a public benefit corporation. We will present and discuss how Trek differentiates itself in an industry where the attention is on high prices supporting high investor returns. Trek’s benefit corporation status helped it garner favorable attention in some respects, but has also presented challenges, particularly when it comes to attracting new capital.

  8. Structure, Agency, and the Establishment Process of Hamidiye Trade School in the Late Ottoman Turkey.Eyüp Aygün Tayşir - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:35-40.
    This study aims to rewrite the history of the establishment period of Hamidiye Trade School without overlooking its internal structure, but, at the same time, by giving importance to the global context of the time period that had an impact on the formation of the internal structure. Hamidiye Trade School, which was a higher education institute, was founded by Abdülhamid II in 1882/83 in Istanbul and it has been subjected to several changes during its history. Today, it continues its academic (...)

  9. Symposium: Breaking Boundaries and Forging a Circle of Trust.Sandra Waddock, Jerry Calron & James Weber - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:26-34.
    This symposium created a circle of trust between IABS Fellows in attendance and other attendees around the issue of co-creating a vision for IABS 2050. A circle of trust is exploratory, inclusive, respectful of difference, open to new insights and perspectives, while being bound together by a shared commitment to co-learning and co-creation via the sense-making interaction of self and other. The session focused on four core questions: What are the major issues and obstacles to a flourishing future for business (...)

  10. Workshop Report: Blue Marble Thinking for the Future of Business in Society: Where Does the Business in Society Field Go From Here?Sandra Waddock, Dawn R. Elm, David Wasieleski, Harry Van Buren & Sarah Glozer - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:1-11.
    Blue Marble or holistic systems thinking focuses on the big picture—the system as a whole. The ‘blue marble’ is Earth viewed from space, where it can be seen as an unboundaried whole. To understand the Blue Marble, we need to zoom out—and then zoom in to specific issues and systems—and then zoom back out again. Panelists outlined key issues facing the business in society field: the need to get the field “unstuck” towards the truly difficult, big picture issues facing the (...)

    Accountable Capitalism, Responsible Capitalism, and Political Capitalism.Duane Windsor - 2019 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 30:12-25.
    This paper compares three recent prescriptive proposals for practicing capitalism: Accountable Capitalism, Responsible Capitalism, and Political Corporate Social Responsibility. Warren’s Accountable Capitalism is a corporate governance reform proposal. Freeman’s Responsible Capitalism prescribes effective stakeholder management through entrepreneurial value creation. Political CSR is a prescription for democratization inside and outside of businesses and provision of public goods in instances of governmental incompetence. The rationale for this examination is the possibility of political crisis in the relationship between democracy and capitalism.
