THE INTERGENERATIONAL FAMILY BUSINESSES AS A STRESS MANAGEMENT INSTRUMENT FOR ENTREPRENEURS VOL. 1
Abstract and Figures
In the beginning of 21st century many jobs have already been displaced by the automation and the artificial intellect. Many others are going to be displaced, due to the corporative plans for higher profits with less human resources. Variety of films about Detroit city describe the consequences from these on-going changes. The only cell, which treats humans as people, is the family. The family is a unit between several people for mutual support. Therefore, the role of the family businesses become quite important in this new era, especially to keep the people with incomes and security. The traditional families are exposed to some feudalistic features. Usually, the spouse with power (male or female) dominates and restricts the other family members. Therefore, in our research we give a priority to the attitude of the people towards the idea about a family business. The purpose of this publication is to describe an international research under INTERGEN about some attitudes in the students to choose the idea of family business. This psychological background is upgraded with analyses of their business expectations. The main tasks of this publication are: • To present the point of view from each of the 12 participating university about the need to study the family businesses. • To describe the methodology of the research. • To present the general findings about: general trends and specific group differences; effects of sex; age effects; country; specialty; correlations. • To introduce two models of predictors. The expected outcomes of the book are to enrich the international researches about family businesses, especially in the field of the student attitude towards having business with their relatives. Thus we give a better understanding how the family businesses could be used as a stress management instrument for entrepreneurs. This publication presents the general results from the survey. Other publications will be prepared for deeper analyses of the here described statistical findings. We would like to thank all the students and academics who have participated this unique international research in Albania, Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Russia and Serbia! Their valuable answers have been the bottom for these analyses and also the trigger for next international researches on intergenerational family businesses with the INTERGEN network. Also we want to give special thanks to all reviewers for their supportive comments and ideas for next scientific research in this field!
