Organizations are increasingly concerned with sustainability and corporate social responsibility – whether for business, legal, or values-based reasons. The HR function is uniquely positioned to assist in both developing and implementing a sustainability strategy.
Go to The Guardian’s Corporate Social Responsibility page and select a video or article from the list provided. If possible, avoid selecting videos or articles already chosen and discussed by classmates. After viewing the video or reading the article you have selected, provide a summary of it and a response to the following discussion prompts:
- Explain how the organization in the video or article demonstrates corporate social responsibility.
- Explain HR’s role in formulating corporate values and developing an overall business sustainability strategy.
- Identify examples of sustainable HR practices that support a culture of corporate social responsibility.
Use this week’s lecture as a basis for your post. Reference the source and cite the textbook in your original post. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
