Posted on April 19, 2012 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Social changes remain gradual and linear until we reach a “tipping point” where a sudden shift occurs in “norms” and behavior. Sustainable Industries has listed some interesting trends written by Cynthia Figge, CSRHub. Several trends are driving corporate transparency and disclosure towards a tipping point where disclosure will be normal and opaque behavior will be aberrant:

  1. The power of crowds.  There is no point trying to hide a secret that a lot of people know.  Through…

Why don’t more young people know about what business is doing in this area? What can large corporations do to better communicate their CSR programs to younger audiences?

According to Professor Madsen, Distinguished Service Professor for Ethics and Social Responsibility at Carnegie Mellon University, “Part of the problem might be the actual way that corporations are sending their CSR messages via various social media. As there is often an overriding concern with making CSR activities…

The 58 Million 'Left-Behind' Children in China

Posted on April 2, 2012 at 8:56pm 0 Comments

SAI wrote recently that on a field visit to China, the topic of the 58 million "left-behind" children was brought up by virtually everyone we met with: leaders of grassroots migrant worker centers, global brands and government officials. The children's parents are the men and women who have migrated to work in 'China Inc.' -the super-competitive export manufacturing industry that has surged in growth over the past 30 years. These men and women are the very migrant…

Henry... I see you added me as a friend, welcome!

As an organizational psychologist I have always thought of CSR starting inside the corporation in the way individuals are treated and the honesty, integrity, and decency of management... all of these are rare in governance and management as deceit (of, the customer, the suppliers, the other managers, and, of course, the staff) has always seemed a bulwark of any commercial enterprise.

How can any organization profess a CSR mission when it lies, as a matter of policy, to all with whom it deals?

Your thoughts?

Hello Henry , Use CSR as Marketing that what my organisation is doing for the Corporate , we have become like their Marketer since it win win process.What I have observed with my personal experience is large company are serious but small are not serious.

In the the Democratic Republic of Congo to get Corporate funds is big challenge. They like supporting events than the project because of the visibility. Let me send you a sample of the photo of my previuos sponsor at one even at University , the room was full of is brand but I have to admit it since is investment what do you think about?

Best rgeards ,
Rock
