New Research on Business, Behavioural and Social Sciences in the context of New Normal

The context of the new normal has led to changes in organisations, both in terms of how they operate and in terms of their approach to new objectives. Numerous changes in the world's economic, technological, and social factors have emerged conforming a new normal environment for business with major implications for managers and entrepreneurs (Ahlstrom et al, 2020).

For some authors, this new normal is also a transitory phase in which changes will be implemented at different rates, scales and intensities depending on the characteristics of the organisations, sectors and countries in which the companies operate (Raghavan et al., 2021). The new normal environment has led organisations to respond to increasing change and competition, by becoming more innovative and developing new business models and new human resource management processes (Loon et al, 2020). In addition, the pandemic has had important implications for the role technology plays in the workplace and organizations are introducing new ‘tech-driven’ practices (Carroll and Conboy, 2020). All of this represents a significant shift from the existing model that deserves to be studied and analysed.

This Special Issue brings together recent research from the business, social and behavioural sciences to show the pioneering changes and innovations that organisations are making at the operational, structural, and behavioural levels. This context of the new normal can develop new resources and capabilities in organisations and engender more flexible attitudes and new business behaviours that need to be studied and analysed.
