Westerman to edit Human Resource Management Review special issue on sustainable HRM

Appalachian State University Director of Sustainable Business Jim Westerman will serve as editor of a special issue of the Human Resource Management Review focusing on sustainable Human Resource Management (HRM).

Westerman, who leads sustainability efforts in Appalachian's Walker College of Business, will serve along side Sita Vanka (University of Hyderabad), Madasu Bhaskara Rao (IBS-Hyderabad, IFHE University) and Manish Gupta (IBS-Hyderabad, IFHE University). The editors will seek manuscripts that have an impact, particularly in terms of adding value and novel insights to the literature on sustainable HRM. 

According to a call for manuscripts, a paradigm shift is evolving in people management policies and practices that aim to integrate HRM with sustainability, and organizations are increasingly taking responsibility for individual and organizational behavioral outcomes for the creation of a sustainable eco-system. This special issue aims to link the theoretical understanding of human resource practices for sustainable HRM to the sustainability of organizations and societies.

Manuscripts can be submitted for consideration between June 1 and June 30, 2018. For additional information, view the call for manuscripts or contact Jim Westerman, westermanjw@appstate.edu.
