Corporate Social Responsibility and Performance Management
Practicable, effective and sustainable solutions to economic, social and environmental challenges are essential components of a winning formula in business and politics.
Efficient and sustainable management and performance management
Dealing with the looming acute shortage of qualified employees, strained public-sector and health service budgets, and increasingly fierce international competition will require companies and public service providers to implement innovative, cost-effective approaches aimed at securing long-term success.
Organisations will be forced to think outside of the box, while also retaining a focus on applicability and academic principles. Our researchers aim to develop practicable, effective and long-term solutions that promote efficient and sustainable management and performance management, and collaborate closely with the private- and public-sector organisations and regional administrations for which these measures are designed.
Research activities concentrate on:
- Value-based and sustainable management
- Innovative financing methods, such as microfinance, complementary currencies and Islamic banking
- Approaches designed to improve the efficiency of public spending on health and regional development, including social entrepreneurship, and participation models based on complementary currencies and basic income systems
- Sustainable competitive strategies, market development and instruments for Austrian exporters
In order to safeguard the success of our research initiatives, a series of long-term partnerships have been set up with leading companies, public-sector organisations and regional authorities, or are currently under discussion.
