Description

In the midst of climate change, responsible business practices and ecological modernization become essential tools for the promotion of sustainability. Due to the current level of demand for eco-friendly products and services, there is a need for green training and green human resource development to support green creativity and eco-innovation for sustainability. By incorporating green initiatives into human resource practices, organizations can maintain a positive impact on the environment. With a full understanding of sustainable business practices, positive impacts on the environmental management field become easier to produce.

Human Resource Management Practices for Promoting Sustainability is a pivotal reference source that explores the incorporation of green initiatives into all aspects of human resource management practices in a variety of industries. The book delivers a discussion on green human capital, collective green intelligence, and competencies that are essential to cope with the challenges in Industry 4.0. It also provides a basis for green recruitment and selection processes as a way of promoting pro-environmental behavior in the labor markets. While highlighting a broad range of topics including employee relations, knowledge management, and recruitment, this book is ideally designed for executives, entrepreneurs, human resource managers, academicians, researchers, and students. The book is also suitable for conventional and corporate universities looking to meet sustainable development goals as well as policymakers as it provides a guideline in designing and implementing green creativity and eco-innovation based on a wide range of global issues confronting sustainability in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
