Introducing a theory of workplace dignity into the field of management studies, this
innovative new book presents an alternative paradigm based on principles of human
dignity which is integrated into a theoretical approach to the topic. The author addresses
and analyses the causes and consequences of the dominant political-economic paradigm
within management studies. Further, it presents a theoretical alternative which can
constitute a foundation for a new way of thinking about organisations, management, and
leadership. Dignity in the Workplace offers scholars ideas for how research in the field of
management studies may be enriched by a dignity-paradigm, and goes further to explore
the role of a dignity-paradigm in the function of HR-managers and organisational leaders.
Thus, the book aims to contribute to the need for alternative conceptualisations of how
contemporary organisations can be managed.
