I am pleased to share with you the next issue of our Newsletter. The theme for this issue is "Management of Human Resources (HR) in Family Business." Besides attracting and retaining talent, keeping the workforce engaged and motivated, are major challenges that require family businesses to adopt a strategic approach towards their HR function. HR is also critical to family firms because it manages multi-layered relationships between employees, business and family owners. Hope you will find these summaries relevant and interesting. The issue also carries research precis of two FBR articles on this theme. Kindly visit our blog for summaries of recent news on family business.

As most of you are aware, the Centre organised the Sixth Asian Invitational Conference on Family Business at the ISB during February 3 – 5, 2017, with “Competitiveness in Family Business” as the main theme. We had the Academic Conference on February 3 where 15 cases and 14 research papers were presented by academics from India and abroad. This was followed by the Business Conference on February 4 & 5 where eminent speakers like, Dr Dieter Spaelti (Spectrum Value Management Ltd, Switzerland), Adi Godrej (Godrej group), GM Rao (GMR Group), GV Prasad (Dr Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd), Professor Denise H Kenyon-Rouvinez (IMD Business School, Switzerland), Gopal Srinivasan (TVS Capital Funds Ltd), Puneet Dalmia (Dalmia Bharat Group), Pawan Agarwal (Dainik Bhaskar Group) shared their experiences on different themes. More than 360 delegates attended the conference and listened to 27 speakers. The conference provided a great platform for sharing insights on topics focusing on family business.
