5th Annual Winter Global Business Conference

Conference topic: Socially responsible business and global/local competitiveness

 

Conference Theme

2017 Winter Global Business Conference in Tignes (France) primarily aims at understanding the key issues of socially responsible business and how it influences firms’ global and local competitiveness. Social responsibility is everyone’s responsibility. Thus, companies need to find purposeful (and even profitable) ways of socially responsible business behavior that would enable sustainable global/local competitiveness. So, some of the questions that arise are: How do companies transform socially responsible business to firm specific competitiveness?; How can MNCs transfer local image of social responsibility to global level and vice versa?; How can socially responsible business help companies in global expansion?; What are the traps in applying socially responsible business? We are interested in different perspectives: different fields’ perspectives, different levels of analysis (macro to micro), different industries, etc.

Winter Global Business Conference welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions that discuss important issues in their field and how these issues relate to business challenges in the global economy. Conference provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary take on this issue. Besides its interdisciplinarity, this conference wants to provide a platform for constructive dialogue on these important issues between academia and practice.

We are looking forward to diverse contributions aiming at excelling our knowledge on the key ideas about socially responsible business and global/local competitiveness.
