Having been credited as the founding member of the field of sustainable HRM, I would like to share my knowledge to engage with scholars and management professionals through this channel to achieve common good for organisations and stakeholders (i.e., employees, their families, environment, supply chain etc.). In this channel, I have included short videos on how sustainable HRM can be used to implement environment, social, and governance (ESG) for shared value. These short video clippings are from my previous presentation recordings in international workshops and conferences.
