The C2K Blog
Published: 7/31/2011The weigh in. CSR, CR, Shared Values. I have lost track of the number of times I have rallied; a dozen times perhaps on my own blog and as many more when you include the comments I have left on the blogs of others.
James Epstein-Reeves and Scott James have contributed to the lively debate on the Forbes blog this past week.
I have always maintained that the ‘S’ matters; and not because I associate the ‘S’ with philanthropy and doing ‘S’ocial good, although these aspects of corporate business are important. The reason for my strong attachment to the 'S' is because of the importance of acknowledging the social impact or the social consequences of business decisions: how people are impacted - the company’s employees, the people in the community as well as the people throughout the supply chain. And while this should matter with or without the 'S', keeping the 'S' serves as an internal and external reminder that it does matter.
Published: 7/23/2011A friend of mine opened up a really great discussion the other day. She recently completed some mindfulness training and is now convinced that she is living mindlessly; living by rote, as she calls it. She has decided that she needs to get uncomfortable..., to give life a bit of a rub to help her wake up. She has decided she wants to drive some change in her life.
Seems that it's the BIG change she's after. She has decided to leave her job of the past eight years in a senior management position with an NGO and to move into the for-profit world. Immensely talented, I am convinced that she'll not have any difficulty finding the right employer. An energetic, team leader able to realize the organization's vision WITH the team, the corporate world only stands to benefit from all that this woman has to offer.
Published: 7/11/2011For many of us, our first encounter with government occurs shortly after birth, before we even leave the care of the Health Professional. This introduction to the government's civil registration system makes us matter. For others, millions of others, it's as if they matter not; for their births are allowed to go unregistered by their own governments.
