    About the presentation:
    Over the past decades, global migration patterns have been undergoing significant, although often underestimated, transformations. The directionality, geographic spread, climate and urban migration, and skills involved have resulted in changes in demand and supply of the workforce. In turn, this has affected corporate human resource management and social sustainability practices as well as the diversity, inclusion, and internationalization strategies of firms. In this presentation, Aida Hajro and Milda Zilinskaite address the implications of these changes for the activities of multinational enterprises and highlight many unanswered questions and avenues for future research.

    The presentation is based on evidence from the interdisciplinary literature and supported by the first-hand insights from the Advisory Board members – leading scholars, seasoned practitioners, and policy and human rights experts – of the international Migration, Business and Society (MBS) network. One of the MBS board members, Paul Baldassari, will be joining the presentation to share concrete managerial implications from his migration management experience as the Executive Vice President of Operations Strategy & Former Chief Human Resources Officer at the multinational electronics manufacturer Flex Ltd.

    This session will be moderated by Mila Lazarova (Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University, Canada)
