Philip Kotler, one of the world's foremost voices on business and marketing, and Nancy Lee, President of Social Marketing Services, Inc., provide best practices and cutting-edge ideas on the best ways and means for corporations to maximize corporate contributions to social issues and to know what good they did. Business leaders will learn how to align their business goals with cultural and social ones; choose social issues and charities to support; gain employee support; implement successful initiatives; and evaluate their efforts.
Offering more than just a theoretical perspective, this book includes the personal insight of some of the business world's most admired companies. Full of proven recommendations and real-world advice on social initiatives, it includes first-person stories from twenty-five business leaders from such successful and benevolent socially responsible companies as Ben & Jerry's, IBM, Washington Mutual, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, The Body Shop, Hewlett-Packard, and American Express. For those seeking funding from corporations such as these, a final chapter presents ten recommended strategies for success.
This insightful and practical book presents twenty-five best practices, assembled to guide decision-making in the area of corporate social responsibility. It is, in the end, intended to help maximize the return on discretionary corporate investments, resulting in efforts that do the most social, environmental, and economic good.
I recommend it for anyone taking the Organizational Supervision Business Management Degree.
Therefore, this is an excellent starting point for everyone who is new to the concept of CSR and introducing it in an organization.
I love the organization, simplicity, presentation, and methodology used in presenting the topics.
