Today’s world has witnessed a Black Swan event affecting every aspect of human life with major socio-economic impact. The world is undeniably facing a new, challenging and an unpredictable event with the outbreak of the pandemic. But with significant disruption comes great opportunities. The tireless researches in different domains are already at full swing for a better and more sustainable future. The need to reconstruct and be resilient and agile in a specific sustainable direction is the need of the hour. The pandemic has made every human self-sufficient and confident to fight the odds with new vigor and intelligence defining a new way of living in the ‘new normal’ of things.

According to the famous scholar Yaakov Kaufman, “When someone pushes you to the corner, push the corner away“. So in this situation, businesses require an innovative pathway to a more resilient economy across the globe. During these challenging times, renovations of old ideas to a new rebooted one or/ and new ideas from inception are the keys to business resilience and sustainability. But emphasizing resilience, i.e. the capacity for resisting, absorbing and responding, even reinventing if required, in response to fast and/or disruptive change needs companies to become agile, i.e. capacity for moving quickly, flexibly and decisively in anticipating, initiating and taking advantage of opportunities and avoiding any negative consequences of change. It is time for researchers to lead the change towards a sustainable alternative.

Advancing human well-being along material well-being, health, education, voice, access to a clean and safe environment and resilience – is at the core of transforming society towards sustainable development. Sustainable development is the core objective of the process of economic growth and development. But it is also a powerful instrument for promoting economic growth, especially when investments in developmental segment of global economy are made in the context of a liberal and open economic environment. There is interrelationship between three complementary issues: amalgamation into the global economy and the globalisation of markets; the promotion of faster economic growth; and sustainable human development. The impact of each of these interlocking issues on supporting development is the need of the hour. The negative consequences of globalization and liberalization are also distinguished, and strategies to mitigate those impacts are located in social and economic policies. If sustainable development has to achieve its potential, it must be integrated into the planning and measurement systems of business enterprises. And for that to happen, the concept of sustainable business development must be articulated in terms that are familiar to business leaders. The complexities of the overall issues and several weaknesses of so-called ‘holistic’ or ‘comprehensive’ development approaches are being debated upon in academic and corporate forums.

Taking these factors into account we have decided to bring out an Issue on “Economic Development and sustainability in Dynamic Global Market”.

This issue focus on multi faced problems that underlie economic frameworks, as given below:

  • Uberisation is one such neo-euphemism for a property of a highly tele-networked business for hitting peak efficiencies in operations, providing highly economical and efficient services. ‘Does Uberisation Affect the Psychological Wellbeing of IT Professionals?’ explores the factors responsible for creating psychological distress and poor organizational commitment among temporary workers.
  • Most individuals choose to spend the majority of their adult lives in paid employment. For most, the choice to work may not be seen as much of a choice at all, since money provides sustenance, security, and privilege. ‘Relationship Between The Industrial Types and Managerial Pay: A Study Involving Principal Industrial Sectors of India’ identifies the quantum of managerial remuneration which is determined by many factors like financial strength of the organizations, ownership structure, risk propensity of the executives etc.
  • The purpose of succession planning is to derive a systematic process that would independently and successfully tender the modern business challenges such as development of organisation, team development, globalisation and talent management. ‘Study on Impact of Succession Planning on Employee Career Attitude in Select IT companies in West Bengal’, aims at study of the impact of identifying the right successor for the future vacant position on the career attitude of mass employees in general.
  • ‘Socially Responsible Leadership – Indian Historical Perspectives’ focuses on glimpses of the salient features of these corporate entities and their activities that are delineated in his paper.

This issue of Globsyn Management Journal also articulates industry Perspectives, Case Studies and Book Reviews beside Research Articles.
