The increasing velocity of international transactions; the technology-enhanced growing interconnectedness of people, business, and societies; and, finally, the escalating density of the day-to-day business interactions are the key sources of challenges that organizations, both in public and private sectors, are facing today. The opportunities inherent in these processes as well as the side effects that they generate have an impact on all stakeholders involved, including employees, investors, and society. As a result, the same processes have a direct impact on key managerial decisions pertaining to business performance, growth and development strategies, forms of market entry, and sources of competitive advantage. The most recent advances in economic collaboration and integration around the world and their implications for the business sector add several new layers to the already complex environment in which international business sustainability has to be mastered. This Special Issue seeks to tap into this.
The Guest Editor of this Special Issue welcomes submissions that address, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Technology-enhanced tools and strategies for sustainability in international business;
- Talent management as a function of business sustainability, competitiveness, and success;
- Navigating challenges and opportunities in international business: from business strategy to day-to-day business operation;
- Employees turnover and sustainability in context of international business;
- Managing cultural diversity in international business as a function of sustainability;
- Novel, sustainable, green, and tech-enhanced business development strategies;
