About the Humanistic Management Network Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Chapter

The Humanistic Management Network (HMN) – GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) Chapter aspires to promote human dignity as the central value in management research, business school teaching, and practice. It is perfectly in line with the concept of promoting a Falah economy, one which fosters well-being. Foundational principles of humanistic management across cultures include:

1. Unconditional respect for the dignity of life.

2. Integration of ethical reflection in management decisions.

3. Active and ongoing engagement with stakeholders.

The GCC consists of a rich diversity of states and cultures encouraging all involved stakeholders and members to explore traditions, commonalities and opportunities to learn from others, and thus enhance solutions in inspiring, effective dialogues, events, projects, and publications.

Current research and thought leadership projects of the chapter and its cooperation partners include:

• The changing role of the Chief Compliance Officer

• Humanistic scaling strategies

• Optimizing employee engagement in light of nationalization strategies
