The conference aims to bring together scholars, researchers, practitioners, and industry experts from around the world to engage in fruitful discussions and exchange knowledge on the role of values in shaping work practices and organizational dynamics.

Message from the organizing committee chairs

Prof. Edna Rabenu, Tel-Hai Academic College, Israel
On behalf of the organizing committee.

 

We would like to welcome all participants to the ISSWOV 2024 Conference to be hosted in Tiberias, Israel, organized by Tel-Hai Academic College. 

 

Tel-Hai College is situated within the stunning Upper Galilee, one of Israel's most beautiful and breathtaking regions, characterized by its beautiful lush landscape, amazing natural landforms, waterfalls, historic sites, and quaint rural villages. The rare ecological diversity in a radius of about 40 kilometers, from the Golan Heights mountains to the Hula Valley, and the varied agricultural activity taking place in the region, are a foundation for groundbreaking research. Since its establishment as an academic institution, Tel-Hai College has grown and evolved into one of Israel’s leading colleges in every respect including the size of its student population, and the variety of its Bachelor and Master programs. 
Harnessing the unique resources of the region, its population, nature, and landscape, which together constitute a basis for innovation, advancing research, and shaping the future generation, academic research of the highest level is being conducted, innovative teaching methods are being applied, and proactive social involvement is being implemented in the Galilee and the entire northern region of the country.
 

 


   
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The college’s affiliation with MIGAL– Galilee Research Institute strengthens the existing academic and research infrastructure of both bodies and facilitates the development and advancement of multi-disciplinary academic programs and research projects, as well as the continued building of the knowledge economy and leveraging industry in the Galilee region.
For many decades, Tel-Hai College has been rooted at the heart of the community in Galilee, not just as an educational center but as an integral part of the diverse local population, leveraging social and industrial developments through various collaborations. 
With three faculties: The Faculty of Social Science and Humanities, the Faculty of Science and Technologies, and the Faculty of Innovation and Teaching in Education, the college plays a major role in the research and development of technology and its application in Agriculture, Biotechnology, Computer Sciences, Education, Society, Medicine, Health and Wellbeing, and provides students with an array of academic opportunities.
We are happy to announce that due to Tel-Hai research achievements, the Council for Higher Education in Israel as well as the Government of Israel, announced that Tel-Hai Academic College will become soon the University of the Galilee in Kiryat Shmona.
Our student body is an eclectic mix of society and culture; a true mosaic of Israeli society, bringing together male and female, Jewish and Arab, and traditional and secular Israeli young adults. With a constant annual growth of about 7%, our student body numbers over 5000 students in full-time academic studies. Going beyond its original mandate to provide higher education for Galilee residents, the college's outstanding programs now draw 60% of its students from outside Galilee. 
Tel-Hai College also offers high-quality, innovative short-term international programs and workshops. Its International Academic Affairs Unit creates and supports new opportunities for international partnerships and programs, for the benefit of students and faculty.
The International Unit establishes new international partnerships for the College, that lead to collaborative projects and research, as well as exchange programs for both students and faculty and guest lecturers on campus.  The College is a proud partner of the US Fulbright program in Israel, the Faculty Fellowship Program, and the European Union’s Erasmus+ Program. 

Tiberias
We chose to hold the conference in the city of Tiberias because it is a tourist resort, located on the banks of the Sea of Galilee and near the Jordan River. The Tiberias area is full of hotels, restaurants, and modern places of entertainment alongside historical places, archaeological sites, Holy sites for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and settlements unique to Israel such as the kibbutzim.
