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. CSR and 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, employees, society, the environment and, ultimately, HR professionals. The HR function plays a critical role in embedding a values-based, strategic CSR mind-set and establishing an organisational culture that meets the needs of today's stakeholders.

The book explains why, how and what to do next - offering detailed advice, tools and a roadmap to get started with hundreds of tips from companies around the world. 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 and HR is both a wake-up call and a toolkit. It is an essential reading for practitioners in both HR and CSR, as well as a sought-after teaching resource for executives and students.
