Managing Corporate Social Responsibility in Action: Talking, Doing and Measuring
Frank den Hond, Frank G. A. de Bakker, Peter Neergaard
Ashgate, 2007 - Business & Economics - 265 pages
Since the mid 1990s, political and public debates about the social responsibilities of firms have gained renewed force. Although CSR seems to be a well defined concept in management literature, in its diverse applications the CSR concept loses much of its pertinence. The authors focus on different aspects of managing CSR in action to capture differences between discourse and practice. By examining the question from three angles - talking about CSR, doing CSR and measuring CSR - they attempt to make sense of the difference between practice and reality. They conclude by suggesting ways to overcome the difficulties that arise around CSR in action.
