About the Humanistic Management Network Nigeria Chapter

The Nigerian chapter of the Humanistic Management Network promotes the development of an economic system with respect for human dignity and well-being.  It defends human dignity in face of its vulnerability.

The chapter was founded to catalyze the transition towards a life-conducive economic system by working with thought leaders across academic disciplines, practice, policy and media. Our theory of change focuses on changing the narrative behind business and management (in research, pedagogy and practice), and to promote a culture of dignity and well-being that leads to ethical and sustainable organizing in practice. We do so by providing a platform to people concerned with the state of “business as usual” and foster community so that we provide not only criticism but constructive solutions. We believe these solutions need to be co-created with practitioners, policy makers and supported by the media.

HMN Knowledge Café - The Role of Business in Society

January 24. 2022

Hosted by the Nigeria Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network

Business is essential to the economy of society. A single business entity can stand for and serve one or many purposes within the society. It can assume many roles with attendant expectations to each. In its plainest form, a firm or business can see itself as a service provider or maker of great products existing to create value for its shareholders, but to its community of stakeholders the view of its role in society can be a complex maze of interests and expectations that business leaders and managers need to understand to operate successfully. Join us as we examine the need for having a system to identify and interpret the expectations associated with each view.

HMN Knowledge Café - The Identity of the Business Organisation

January 22. 2022

Hosted by the Nigeria Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network

Business organisations are separate from the individual(s) who set up the business. Whilst this is true, it is important the business reflects the owner’s personal ethos and has a strong identity that employees and customers can identify with. Business identity with a strong leaning towards ethics plays an important role in positive stakeholders’ perception of the business and ultimately determines its success or otherwise. The Humanistic Management Network (HMN) knowledge café will dwell on how to go about developing a strong ethical identity, harnessing its benefits, and overcoming possible challenges.
