Arguably, the Human Resources (HR) function is the key partner in embedding Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability initiatives in any organisation, as this can be achieved only when a company educates, engages and empowers its entire workforce. This book goes even further and proposes that the HR function has a responsibility to be proactive in leading the way in establishing a company-wide CSR-enabled culture. And, yet, this is not happening. HR managers are preoccupied with their traditional roles of organizational development, recruitment, training and compensation, and are failing to see the opportunities that CSR brings for them as professionals and for their organizations. CSR for HR has been designed to change the game. It provides HR managers with a thorough understanding of the drivers and principles of CSR and a practical step-by-step guide to the way CSR interfaces with every HR function. Recruitment, compensation, training, employee communications, employee well-being, health & safety, employee rights, involvement in the community, and employee impacts on the environment are all discussed from the CSR-HR standpoint, with many clear examples showing how HR can leverage CSR strategies to deliver greater benefit for the business, for employees, for society, for the environment and, ultimately, for HR professionals themselves. The HR function plays a critical role in embedding a values-based, strategic CSR mindset and establishing an organizational culture that meets the needs of today's stakeholders. HR professionals who understand this and adapt accordingly will reap the benefits. The book explains why, how and what to do next, offering detailed advice, tools, a roadmap to get started and hundreds of tips from companies around the world, including original content from HR managers of large corporations. Written from the standpoint of an HR professional waking up to the strategic possibilities of incorporating CSR in her day-to-day role, the book has an easy and engaging style, ideal for the busy managerial reader. CSR for HR is both a wake-up call and a toolkit and will be essential reading for practitioners in both HR and CSR, as well as being a sought-after teaching resource for both executives and students.

Recenzijas

CSR FOR HR or HR FOR CSR - a Win Win For Everybody Reading "CSR for HR" by Elaine Cohen has successfully answered some key questions that have I been chewing over in my head ... this book was an eye opener for me... ... And while "the intended audience is anyone practising, teaching, learning, aspiring to be in the HR function", I see value in expanded the audience to include anyone practicing, or aspiring to be in the CSR function as well. ... Yes, Elaine Cohen's book is a must read for anyone in HR function of any sized organization, and let's not forget for CSR practitioners too. Full review -- Lalia Helmer, Business that Cares blog ... a must-read for everybody who either works in the HR function and wants to develop a view on how to support CSR in their daily life, or for everybody outside the HR function looking for arguments why the HR function has an important role to play and needs to overcome some genuine mental stereotypes. ... The nice thing about telling the story in a plot like this is that more or less all arguments that one could run against in this challenging metamorphosis come back in the book, and in that sense it delivers refreshing yet convincing arguments any reader can use from the next day onwards. Another important point to make about Elaine's book is that she has interwoven the plot with a lot of ready-made materials (slides, checklists, book summaries and articles) that can be used as blueprints for readers to start their own pilgrimage. In essence, reading Elaine's book saves the reader a lot of time reading other articles and books. ... Elaine Cohen's book is the right book at the right moment, written in a very useful way that makes it "ready to use" from day 1 onwards. -- Ralph Thurm, Director, Deloitte Sustainability & Innovation
