Playing games is popular in all times and cultures.

In contrast, the PB of Potsdam, in Germany, has witnessed a steadily...

Democracy is in fact not a government of, by, and for the people, it is rather a government of, for, and controlled by the people. Practice shows that citizens’ participation in Germany is far away from the theory and its high expectations, particularly concerning deliberation. We deliver some striking but nevertheless typical examples and explain...
Chapter
Gamification was named as one of the marketing trends for 2017 (von Schmelling 2016). But it is more than a buzzword, it is a concept inspired strongly by the video game and online game industries. In the private sector, it is very much in line with the democratization and humanization of work movements. Gamification may be used for customer/citize...

... New emerging online media, of course, exert a great influence on cross-media. However, a cross-media concept should integrate traditional media channels as well (Wirtz et al., 2014). The importance of combining both off-and online media in cross-media advertising efforts will become obvious when looking at studies on cross-media advertising effectiveness discussed in Sect. ...

... 29-30). The vast literature on the gamification of political participation started from a focus on online engagement (Thiel, Reisinger, Röderer, & Fröhlich, 2016) and recently has extended to offline activities (Masser & Mory, 2018). Gamification strives for an "intensification of democracy through playing" (Meloni et al., 2020, p. 568). ...
... Im angloamerikanischen und britischen Sprachraum werden unter CSR eher Aktivitäten zusammengefasst, die in Deutschland unter CC gefasst werden würden (Lopez, 2017). Mory (2017) verweist zudem auf eine an den Stakeholdern orientierte interne und externe Dimension von CSR. Interne CSR wird als sozial verantwortliches Handeln innerhalb der Organisation verstanden. ...
... While customers experience improved services from the private sector, they now have similar expectations from the public sector. The increasing citizens' expectations, together with pressures by demographic change, technological and knowledge explosion and advancements in ICT, lead to a new paradigm shift for governments to adopt the CRM philosophy by viewing and managing citizens as customers and become more effective, efficient, more open, innovative, participatory and trustworthy (Larsen and Milakovich, 2005;Wirtz et al., 2017). ...
... In popular studies, Generation Y is described as having different expectations of their work life and a different work ethic than more experienced colleagues: A balanced work-life situation, flexible working hours, constant feedback, transparency, and freedom in their work organization are the most important expectations of this generation (Hohaus, 2014). All of the Millennial expectations mentioned are covered by the features of an ICSR approach; thus this approach (e.g., Glavas, 2016;Mory et al., 2015Mory et al., , 2016Mory et al., , 2017 is worth adding to the generational research analysis to adjust current HR systems if generational differences occur in ICSR perceptions (Rank, 2020). ...

... Nonetheless, thus far the majority of CSR literature tends to direct its focus towards the External element of CSR rather than the Internal (Rhou & Singha, 2020). Consequently, the general construct of Internal CSR (ICSR) lacks definition and theoretical conceptualisation (Low, 2016;Mory et al., 2016;Sanchez-Hernandez et al., 2021;Sanusi & Johl, 2020). Therefore, in an effort to overcome this gap, contribute to existing literature and expand on current understanding, this study explores how ICSR influences the Employee Employer Relationship (EER) within Luxury 4/5* hotels in the United Kingdom and Ireland (UK&I). ...
... We also had access to written records and other documents, such as internal memoranda, annual corporate reports and financial reports of the companies, which were used as evidence to validate certain conclusions.
