Chapter One by Constantine I. Tongo, PhD categorizes contemporary work motivation philosophies into three wide-ranging classifications, with the goal to concisely present gray areas that research yet to examine. In Chapter Two, Victoria A. Felix, Mercedes Gremillion, and Walt Buboltz, PhD provide readers with a thorough overview of recent literature concerning sleep health and workplace efficiency. Next, Chapter Three by Alidou Ouedraogo, PhD seeks to answer the question, “What are the factors that determine the ability of the informal sector to endure large scale crises?” In Chapter Four, Diego Matricano recommends a method of open innovation while outlining the main facets of inbound and outbound knowledge flows. Simo Salminen provides a Finnish perspective on occupational injuries, risk factors, risk groups, and consequences in Chapter Five. Following this, Luis Alfonso Dau proposes a research program directed at comprehending the influence of ethnic and political arrangements on MNE growth and activity in the BRICS countries in Chapter Six. Lastly, Chapter Seven explores the challenges encountered in rural areas of Lithuania and presents social entrepreneurship as an opportunity to develop the country.
