Time To Make CSR
The current global financial crisis has impacted Corporate Social Responsibility in India adversely. Business houses, trying to restructure their resources, have run the red line through CSR budgets. CSR managers claim that managements have issued instructions to put on hold all new CSR projects. Budgets for many on going projects have also been curtailed. The global financial crisis has helped strengthened the belief that CSR, for most Indian… Continue

The following is from BusinessWeek online:
Social entrepreneurs—enterprising individuals who apply business practices to solving societal problems such as pollution, poor nutrition, and poverty—are now 30,000 strong and growing, according to B Lab, a nonprofit organization that certifies these purpose-driven companies. Together, they represent some $40 billion in revenue.
Not surprising, then, that they've caught the attention of venture capitalists such as those at Acumen… Continue

Social responsibility is a hot topic these days. But are we serious about it? In popular thinking it vaguely refers to playing nice and supporting worthy causes whenever we can. It’s a justified expense. Business leaders promote social responsibility as having a brand “halo” effect that produces warm and fuzzy feelings about their company. After all, it’s supposed to help corporate reputations or soften up regulators. Social responsibility with a megaphone is called cause marketing. That’s when… Continue

At the moment I'm working on a day-long course to look into the issues surrounding Equity and Inclusion in International Development - who is getting missed out and why are they not getting reached?

I had a call last night from a person interviewing with a consultant company. I used to work for that company. The company offered a framework for organizations to grow their profitability.
I asked her two questions:
Does the company live by what they teach?
What are the values behind the framework for achieving profits?
My story is that it's always about the behavior of people, not the beliefs they espouse, the conversations they have, or the articles they… Continue

In the last days I started to think on the possible relation of management type of multinational companies and the presence or lack of CSR programs. As a supposition: multinational companies with a Russian or Ukrainian, and other former soviet countries origin are less familiar with the idea of social responsibility, than multinationals from West Europe.
What do you think about this?
I also would like to address a few questions to those who live in a country, where the… Continue

Beyond Money and Into Meaning
By Pamela Hawley
We've lost more than 2 million jobs in the past three months. You've not only lost your job, but it's going to be competitively difficult to find a new one. Companies are not only shutting down budgets but even shutting down themselves.
So instead of jumping right back into the job market, people are taking some time to think more about their lives. In many ways, it's actually a wonderful position to be in:… Continue

Tanya Parker spent yesterday morning in a crowded warehouse unloading and sorting canned foods, dried pasta and gourmet candy corn -- a far cry from what she did as a corporate events planner at Circuit City.
It isn't a temporary job she's taken as she waits to return to a corporate suite somewhere. It's a volunteer gig that takes her mind off her job search and helps others at the same time.
"I call it my karma boomerang," Parker, dressed in jeans, a black T-shirt and… Continue

The world’s leaders have convened the world’s top economists and financial engineers to come up with a solution to the global economic crisis. Unfortunately the tools economists and financiers use are, in a nutshell, designed to create an economy that generates short-term financial value. Yet in our derivative-and debt-laden world, short-term financial value creation has increasingly been divorced from the underlying basis and drivers of financial value. So, truly solving the current crisis is… Continue
